‘Getting to know the children in the Nursery is one of the absolute highlights to my role. Whether they are waving as they pass my office on a routine treasure hunt or sharing a story with me on the carpet, the children are happy, nurtured and content. 

My own daughter attends the Gosfield Prep School, having joined the Nursery aged 2 in September 2017. Knowing the positive difference and opportunities provided at Gosfield Prep School and Nursery, both as a parent and member of staff, I can whole heartedly vouch for the dedication, experience and creativity of all the whole team. Our children are in safe hands.’

‘Having joined Gosfield School in September 2014 as the Year 1 Class Teacher, in 2015 I accepted the fantastic and exciting opportunity to set up and establish Gosfield School’s Nursery which opened in April 2016.

I now oversee both the Nursery and the Reception Class in my position as Head of Early Years. 

Working closely with the Nursery Manager, I am fortunate to be able to help our youngest children transition smoothly, first into Reception and then beyond into the Prep School. It is both a privilege and a pleasure.’

Mrs Nina Gibbens

‘I started at Gosfield Nursery when it first opened in April 2016 as a Nursery Nurse and have since completed my Level 3 Cache qualification. I became the Nursery Manager in 2019 and I am lucky to work with such a fabulous team of practitioners, all of whom provide amazing opportunities for our children.  

I like to spend my free time keeping fit. My favourite activity is running through the countryside and walking my dogs.’

‘I love working in Gosfield School’s Nursery as I strongly believe this is a fantastic age to capture and nurture a child’s imagination. I relish being able to support the children in their learning journey at Gosfield. 

When I am not busy singing, getting covered in glitter or pretending to be a dinosaur, I love spending time with my family. I also enjoy walking my mischievous dog Minnie, cooking, photography and gardening.’
