I was born and raised in Liverpool, England and have spent the last 15 years teaching Early Years and primary children in Liverpool, Spain, Qatar and China. I have a BA (Hons) degree in Primary Education with QTS from Sheffield Hallam University and a Postgraduate Certificate National Award for SEN Coordination. In recent years I have specialised in supporting young children with additional needs, which is my particular passion and I really couldn’t imagine doing anything else. Outside of school, I am a member of the Beijing Nia (Dance) community and often to be found in fluorescent clothes and funky sunglasses dancing on The Great Wall and in the local hutongs! I am an enthusiastic cook, known for my tapas from my time in Spain, a spa enthusiast and an avid traveler, determined to explore as many cultures and countries as possible. Recent trips have included Myanmar, Xian, Chengdu, Singapore, Palawan and some more NIA dancing near the temples at Ankor Watt! After 3 years as AEN leader in Early Years at Dulwich College Beijing, I am looking forward to moving south to the bright lights of Hong Kong and delighted to be joining ESF Wu Kai Sha Kindergarten as SEN Coordinator.

My name is Brooke Frampton, and I am originally from Toronto, Ontario Canada. I received my Honours Bachelor of Arts in History and English from McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario and my Bachelor of Education from Lakehead University in Thunder Bay, Ontario. I have been an early years specialist for nine years and have taught in early childhood settings with children from a wide range of nationalities, backgrounds, and cultures. I have been based in Thailand for the last three years working at an IB World School and an American International School in Bangkok. Prior to that, I spent three years teaching at an IB World School in Kuwait. I have also taught in South Korea, Canada, and Egypt. In my spare time, I enjoy practicing Pilates, Barre, and yoga. I also love to scuba dive, and travel. I am very excited to be moving to Hong Kong and joining the teaching team at ESF International Kindergarten Wu Kai Sha. I am looking forward to an exciting year ahead filled with fun and learning!
I feel extremely privileged to be joining Wu Kai Sha Kindergarten and look forward to fully embracing this new opportunity and forging new relationships with pupils, colleagues and parents. I’ve been a teacher for 12 years, working in Oxfordshire and Somerset in the UK. I’ve enjoyed working with children of all ages from 4 year olds to 11 year olds but my heart belongs in teaching those in Kindergarten. I have a keen interest in science, inquiry and outdoor learning. I believe that children are inquisitive and eager to learn; therefore I aim to nurture these attributes and develop a life-long love of learning. Outside of the classroom I enjoy running, swimming, crafts and spending time with my friends and family. I am very excited to be moving to Hong Kong with my husband, son and daughter. It is something we have always wanted to do and we look forward to immersing ourselves in Chinese culture and playing active roles in the Wu Kai Sha Community.
I am pleased to have been a part of Wu Kai Sha International Kindergarten since its inception in 2009. I have been in Hong Kong since 2000, and have a range of teaching experience in both local and international settings. I have a Bachelor of Education (Honours) in Early Childhood Education, qualifications in teaching English as a second language and a postgraduate qualification in Educational Leadership. I have a great passion for Early Childhood Education and am especially interested in early literacy, additional needs and outdoor learning. I am originally from New Zealand, but have family in both New Zealand and Australia. I have two almost-adult children. I love Hong Kong and enjoy cooking, gardening, photography and exploring new areas.
