This study explores the management and governance interaction in a child care setting. The scarcity of governance and management research in the not-for-profit sector, together the absence of any management and governance research in the child care area motivates the study. It is exploratory in nature and presents the findings of a one-year long ethnographic study of relationships between the management committee members and director of a child care setting. The findings indicate that the struggles and tensions between the management, governance and leadership roles drive the individuals towards process and procedures. So despite the simple organisational form and the social family like structures that exist within the child care setting, comfort was found in the application of these formal systems.
