In the words of Dr Seuss, "Oh, the Places You'll Go!". We are very pleased to announce that Cody Frerk has been appointed as Assistant Director (2IC) at Oakdowns ELC.
Cody and Chloe have a long history together, starting their careers together as AQF Cert III Trainees in Early Childhood at Oakdowns six years ago in May and June 2015 respectively.
Like many children who start in the same classroom at the same time, Cody and Chloe had different interests, different modes of learning and a range of outside experience before and during their working life at Oakdowns.
In 2019, Chloe completed her Diploma qualification and first stepped into the Acting Director role developing to become appointed as Centre Director in her own right in January 2020.
In 2020, Cody also completed her Diploma qualification and has taken on more responsibilities at Oakdowns over the last 12 months honing her early childhood knowledge by working in all age groups.
It seems right that Cody is now taking on the role of Assistant Director to assist Chloe as much as possible over the next eight weeks. During this time Cody will be mentored by Chloe to become the Centre Director when Chloe leaves to bring her own baby into this world. We will see Cody juggling time and experience at the front desk and educating in the rooms until Chloe’s departure.
We are confident that Cody has the knowledge, the attitude and the support of the Oakdowns team to continue the quest for excellence that has become embedded in Oakdowns under Chloe’s leadership. Cody will be supported by the leadership team of Rachel (Educational Leader) and Maryka (Diploma), long term Room leader.
We know that Chloe will be back in 2022 and wish her, Brayden and the new baby all the best as they start a new chapter of their lives.
We are incredibly proud of both Chloe and Cody – what a remarkable journey!
The Oakdowns educational team and management were extremely disappointed after receiving an overall rating of "Working Towards NQS" in May 2019. Since then educators have studied hard to improve their educational qualifications and our Nominated Supervisor and Educational Leader have worked with the whole team and families so that our next ratings will reflect a Meeting or Exceeding rating for each quality area.
