Barbara Spiby – 
Manager, Director, Lead SENCO, Lead Safe Guarding Officer

I have been involved with Clifton Playgroup since 1992 as a parent and member of the Management Committee, then after a short break, taking on the role of Manager. I have had 40 years’ experience working with children. I started my training in a Rudolf Steiner school and have continued to train throughout my career, updating and enhancing my skills in early years education and care. I was an OUTSTANDING Child-minder whilst my children were at school, supporting children’s potential for learning in the home environment and learning the importance of parent partnerships in supporting children’s learning.I am also a part time tutor, teaching in early years education and care which I have done for the last 20 years.I now manage Clifton Playgroup, culminating in Playgroup being awarded OUTSTANDING in their latest OFSTED inspection.
