Chairperson’s Note

As Chairperson of the Board of Waterford Childcare Centre, Company Limited by Guarantee, I want to acknowledge the contribution our organisation has made, and continues to make, to the provision of quality professional childcare services in Waterford since July 1994.

The values and standards demonstrated at our centre including respect, understanding, acceptance, inclusion and diversity are also inherent in our approach to governance, compliance and accountability. We are currently in the process of adopting the Governance Code being a voluntary code of practice for good governance of community, voluntary and charitable organisations in Ireland. This decision, approved by the board, was seen as a means of delivering even more robust systems in light of the increasing regulation within the sector.

The Board further recognises that the highest standards of corporate governance are essential for the delivery of the organisation’s strategic objectives and to protect the long term interests of all our stakeholders. We know that good governance should emanate from the Board and be embedded across the entire organisation and ultimately reflected in our practices, policies and procedures.

We value the trust that is placed in us and we will continue to work on your behalf to meet and exceed our legal and moral responsibilities.

Thank you.

Corina Cunningham, Chairperson
