Our Staff Team

We are fortunate to have a team of dedicated and caring managers and practitioners.  

Having them by our side has allowed us to grow with the confidence that our values and high standards are sustained.  


We recognise that our staff team is the most important aspect of our nurseries and we work hard to enable them to flourish.  

We offer our staff a happy, dynamic place to work, standards are high at Egg and we ask everyone to meet and exceed those standards every day.  We love to develop our staff and watch them progress.
