Gemma Hill - Munchkins Manager and Forest School Leader
My name is Gemma and I have worked at Munchkins Childcare for 17 wonderful years. I started as Play worker and worked my way up to Supervisor as well as working as HLTA in Moorgate Nursery. I then completed my BA Hons Degree in Early Years Education and achieved my Early Years Professional Status. I am a qualified Forest School teacher and I love taking children out to the forest to experience the wonderful outdoors, climbing trees and singing around the camp fire.
In April 2015 I was privileged to take on the role at Munchkins Manager. I have learnt so much in a small amount of time and feel blessed to lead and be a part of a strong, committed and hard-working team, to ensure the best outcomes for children in our care. In April 2017 we opened our Munchkins Baby room, this was an exciting new venture and I’m enjoying all the new challenges and celebrations it brings on our Munchkins learning journey.
