Monkey Puzzle Day Nurseries has a varied and diverse team working in our nursery. We value warmth, friendly personalities, caring natures and professionalism alongside expertise in our staff.

Our team

Everyone brings a particular skill or energy to the team and everyone who joins us embarks on a voyage of discovery with the children, but also in their own personal and professional development. Our team ethic is very much that we can never stop learning from each other in order to achieve our shared visions and goals. We provide regular support, training and development opportunities for all team members to learn and grow to be the best that they can be.

We are currently recruiting staff in our nurseries so if you would like to join us, get in touch and let us know! We’re always looking to welcome talented and passionate people into the Monkey Puzzle family!
