Clare Moore


Hi, I’m Clare Moore and I am manager at Woodlands Playgroup.  I qualified with an N.N.E.B. qualification in 1990 and have worked as a nursery nurse in various settings since.  I began working at Woodlands in 2002 as an assistant and became manager in 2010.  To help aid my own development for this position I began a course at Teesside University, I graduated in 2012 with a BA Hons degree in Leadership Management (in Early Years Practice).

Hons degree from Sheffield University.  I took a break to have my own children and then came back to enjoy working with the children at Woodlands, after taking an NVQ3 course in early years.
