Early childhood education and care (ECEC) provider Nido Early School has recently announced three senior leader promotions as its network continues to grow across Australia.


Amber Fisher, who started with Nido as a kitchen hand nine years ago, has recently been promoted to the position of New Service Leader within Nido’s support office.


Her time at the provider has seen her progress through a number of positions, from kitchen hand, Room Assistant, Lead Educator, Assistant Director and then onto the role of Executive Service Manager. 


Amber has worked in and with several services in Victoria, Canberra and Brisbane, and says she has been fortunate to work alongside “some incredible and passionate people”.


Operations lead appointments


Rebecca Fisher and Danika Croll have also recently been promoted, taking on the role of Operations Leader in their respective states. 


Rebecca will lead SA, Victoria, New South Wales and the Australian Capital Territory, while Danika will support Western Australia. 


Rebecca commenced with Nido in June 2012, taking on an Executive Service Manager role to cover a period of parental leave. She has since grown and extended her professional career at Nido over the years in many different roles, including as an Area Manager and in the start-up coordinator role. 


“Rebecca is one of those multi-skilled professionals we often call on to help in any space across the Nest from Facilities, Cap Ex, Operations, Training, support or compliance,” said Kylie Morris, Operations Director.


“She has been such a pivotal part of the growth of our new services and it’s been exciting to see the growth of our Nido of today from her influence and hard work.”


Danika began her time with Nido in June 2018, also in an Executive Service Manager role, before transitioning to an Area Manager position. 


“Danika lives and breathes the One Team approach, often putting her hand up to help, support, guide, train or be the shoulder to cry on or the voice of reason,” Kylie said.


“Her relationships with people and the way she empowers others to think and act, is a key attribute which has enabled her to succeed in her career.”


“When we reflect on those who are Nido, Danika and Rebecca’s names are always at the top of the list and their ability to pivot in a calm and confident manner, is encouraging as we grow and develop as an organisation.”


Kylie said the provider is “looking forward to seeing how Rebecca and Danika will support people and quality leaders and services in reaching the key objectives and goals.” 


“Having both leaders present in the respective states will allow more customised coaching and training to allow our people to develop and meet their goals.”
