GINA CASTLE- Red Room Afternoon Supervisor
I have always had a passion for working with children, particularly in early years. I am a qualified Teacher of Early Childhood Education, studying in Christchurch, New Zealand. I have worked in a Day Nursery setting, both in NZ and the UK, as a live-in Nanny and I was a childminder for 9 years and I have two children of my own.
I first heard about this fabulous place called Hambledon Nursery School, while I was on a yoga retreat (in May 2019) and was attracted by the lovely people I met and the fantastic environment Hambledon has to offer. I joined in September 2019, as an Early Years Practitioner in Red Room, initially working 2 full days a week. I enjoyed it so much, that I increased to 4 full days a week. In April 2023, I took on the role of Afternoon Supervisor in the Red Room and I love the additional responsibilities this brings.
I love watching children learn, grow and thrive and I believe in providing an environment that allows them to do this. I love it here at Hambledon, it really is the best job ever!
