Educator Stories

Some of our Educators have been generous with their time and helped us to put together our Educator Stories. These are a bit of a personal insight into why these Educator chose to become Educators, their ideas on providing childcare, and why they chose HGK.

We hope that they make for interesting reading, and if you would like to be put in touch with any of these Educators please contact us at 0508 44 5437 or

If you are interested in becoming an Educator, we want to hear from you too!
