Samantha Castillo

 I have been working with young children since 2003. In my years of experience I have held positions of Lead Camp Counselor, Teacher, Assistant Director, and Preschool Coordinator.  I have a Bachelor's Degree from San Diego State University in Psychology with a Minor in Child Development and Family Studies, and a Site Supervisor Permit from the state of California.


I came to Gigi’s looking for a care for my son.  I was and still am a new Mom and needed someone to take care of my everything. Who did I trust? Melissa and Sherri were at the top of my list. Since we had worked together at a previous school, I knew they were the best, and really had a heart for the children.  I have come to love their program and envy them when I see pictures of children walking at the park, carrying leaves, playing in the mud.  The teacher in me says, “that is so AWESOME for the children! How can I be apart of that?”.  Melissa welcomed me to Gigi’s and I’m ready to carry the vision of “being out in nature” to the next level!
