Barbara Spiby, Nursery Manager

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 40 years of experience working with children. I started training in a Rudolf Steiner school and have continued to train throughout my career, updating and enhancing my early years’ education and care skills. 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 ‘good’ in their Ofsted inspection.
