My name is Clare Dare and I am the Childcare Co-ordinator for Duffryn Community Link. My role is to support the childcare provision of
I worked for 13 years within the retail sector as an assistant and supervisor/team leader. After having 2 children I started helping out within their nursery and infant schools. This encouraged me to embark upon a new career and enrolled within the local college. I completed the Cache Diploma in Childcare and Education Level 3 and became employed within the local community run play group and nursery. I also worked within Flying Start. Whilst working I continued my studies at the University of Wales Newport where I achieved a Degree with Hons in Early Years Education. This led me to progress with my career to Duffryn.
I have been working within this post since September 2009 and thoroughly enjoy working with the staff and meeting all the children and their parents.
