Before being named CEO in August 2013, Mark was Woodland Education's General Manager and was responsible for all of the company’s services and operations, including end-to-end management of Woodland Education's, enrolment activities, service and support in corporate and private markets. He also played a key role in the continued development of strategic enrolment relationships, ensuring 100% occupancy rates at Woodland Education Campuses. This has been key to Woodland Education's success: predicting demand and delivering services on time is crucial in the education industry. Mark is credited with keeping costs under control, whilst providing a high end service un-heard of in the industry.
Over the years, Mark has assumed duties beyond his operational role. In 2012 he took over the responsibility of scouting new locations for Woodland Education campuses. Under Mark's leadership Woodland Education opened the East and South Melbourne Campuses, signalling a new era for inner city childcare.
As CEO Mark developed the application dubbed "My Xplor" — a mobile app that tracks a child's, movement, temperature, CO2 levels and heart rate whilst they sleep - making Woodland Education the only childcare centre taking the fight directly to SIDS. My Xplor has been designed with parents in mind, allowing them to view their child's activities, live throughout the day. Keeping patens connected and in touch with their child's learning. Mark has introduced Xplor to childcare providers around the world.
"We took everything we’ve learned about education and refined the process to create the most exciting educational experience yet. Woodland Education was designed to incredibly high standards. And you can sense that every time you visit our centres. They feel truly unique. Precisely because they are." - Mark Woodland -
Chief Executive Officer @ Woodland Education Childcare was purposefully imagined. Meticulously considered and precision executed. It is a service showing not just showing what’s educationally possible. But what’s educationally useful. It’s not just what’s next. But what should be next. Walk into a Woodland Education Centre, and you’ll notice how calm, quiet…how perfect it feels. That’s because everything about it is the result of careful consideration. Every detail serves a purpose. And the sum of it all is an incredibly refined education experience.
In 2013 the Department of Education and Early Childhood Development awarded Woodland Education with the highest National Rating “Exceeding National Quality Standard”.
