Introducing Miss Guilfoyle-Smith

We’re delighted to welcome Miss Cariad Guilfoyle-Smith to the Nursery team this September. She has always wanted to work with children and we think think she’ll have a great time looking after our youngest pupils!

Job title: Nursery Practitioner

Where did you work before?

Hedingham Castle

Why did you decide to become a nursery practitioner?

Having 8 younger siblings, I’ve always been around children and wouldn’t have had it any different. I can’t remember not wanting to work with children.

If you hadn’t become an NP, which career would you have chosen instead?

Possibly a social worker or primary school teacher.

How do you think your own school days have shaped your adult life?

I completed my GCSEs and A Levels during tricky times of Covid, from this I have learnt that doing my best and putting in my full effort is good enough.

Which aspect of your job do you enjoy the most? / What are you looking forward to most in your new role?

I’m looking forward to using the knowledge I have learnt during my course in a practical setting and finally being able to start in childcare.

How do you relax away from work?

To relax away from work I love reading, my book buying addiction is never ending!
