Hi, my name is Carol Simpson. I am the Nominated Supervisor here at Kool Kidz on Wellington and am responsible for the day-to-day operation of the service.
I have been working in the Early Childhood industry for the last 23 years, and have loved every moment of that time! During this time, I have worked in both Family Day Care and Long Day Care first as an Educator and then as a Director at various services across Melbourne. My qualifications include a Diploma in Children’s Services, Cert IV Training and Assessment, and Cert IV in OH&S.
I am a passionate believer in promoting the best educational opportunities for young children in an environment that is safe, supportive and fun, and for Educators to continue their own professional development and understanding of current Early Childhood practices. I believe we have one of the best environments at Kool Kidz on Wellington, and it shows in our dedicated staff, our happy children and our satisfied mums and dads, all of whom are part of the Kool Kidz family.
My name is Gaby Fernandez I am the Educational Leader at Kool Kidz on Wellington. I hold a Bachelor of Early Childhood Studies. I have been in the industry for 9 years now and have worked in various roles throughout this time.
As Educational Leader, my role is to guide other educators in their planning reflection, and delivery, and mentor colleagues and peers in their implementation practices as it relates to education and teaching. Knowing what works and what doesn’t for each child is critical as we have a diverse group of children who each respond in different ways to interacting and learning- tailoring learning for each child is an important part of what we do!
I strive to ensure we maintain professional, respectful and trusting relationships with all colleagues and I believe this is evident in the incredible team that we have here at Kool Kidz on Wellington, and the very happy and engaged children across the service!
