My name is Carol Clynes, I was promoted to Nursery Manager of Longbarn in October 2016,  I first started working for Wind in the Willows as the Deputy Manager and SENCO in January 2015.

I have an NVQ level 3 in Childcare and Education and am looking forward to starting my NVQ Level 5 in Early Years Leadership and Management.

I have worked in childcare for 23 years working in Playgroups and Private Nurseries. I have also had experience working with children with additional need having gained Makaton and Portage qualifications through out my career; I have lots of experience using these skills on a one to one basis to meet individual children’s needs.

Outside of work I enjoy taking my Labrador dogs for long walks and spending time with my 3 teenage children. I am a rugby league season ticket holder for Warrington Wolves and like to attend matches at weekends home and away.
