Child care person in the spotlight
This week are delighted to introduce you to Centre Director Rhonda Mayo and Co-Owner Fahim Khondaker from the Calamvale Early Learning Centre in Brisbane.

The Calamvale Early Learning Centre currently has 19 staff and 115 children.

What is your professional background and career experience?
I have a Bachelor of Education: ECS and 23 years in early childhood education covering Queensland education in school settings and early learning centres.

FK: I am a Chartered Accountant and work in the Corporate Finance and Advisory division of a multinational professional services firm. I am also the co-founder of EYLF Apps Pty Ltd.

What attracted you to a career in early childhood education and care?
I left a nursing career to commence study in my degree, and along the way I found a true passion and desire to be a part of a child’s life and their educational journey.

FK: The enthusiasm and positive attitude of early childhood educators in general never ceases to amaze me. As a father, it is quite rewarding to be involved in a business where we get to look after a parent or guardian’s most prized possession for the day. We get to provide them with the peace of mind that their children are being well looked after and receiving a quality education while having lots of fun.
