Briony & Anthony White are the couple behind the Egg Nursery Group, which now includes The Magic Tower Montessori Nursery School
Briony is a qualified teacher specialising in Maths, and taught Years 3 & 4 at two preparatory schools. Anthony formerly worked in the motor industry before taking on the role of financial director of the Egg Nursery just after the first nursery in Sutton Scotney opened in 2010.
Briony & Anthony have lived in Hampshire since 2005 with their two boys, now aged 9 & 11. Charlie, the oldest, went to a Montessori nursery in Winchester prior to starting school and George, the youngest (and the catalyst for the Egg Nursery concept!) began his educational journey at Egg Sutton Scotney.
With two young children of their own, it was whilst Briony was on maternity leave from her teaching role and thinking about the practicalities (and realities!) of getting back to work, that they both recognised the need locally for an outstanding day nursery care provision in a home from home setting. Briony & Anthony's combined passion grew and with Briony's experience and understanding of the education system (and now as parents themselves juggling the minefield of childcare!) they channelled their energies into creating a setting that they understood from both sides: as educators and as parents. The dream became reality and Egg Nursery in Sutton Scotney opened its doors in 2010.
Egg Nursery was so well received and in order to meet demand, Egg Nursery Picket Twenty was designed and purpose built by the White's and it opened in April 2016. Then only last year, the viability of The Magic Tower became uncertain and Briony & Anthony with their experience and passion for child-centered nursery care, stepped in to keep the nursery from closing down. With the phenomenal support from its staff, The Magic Tower remains open and has an exciting future ahead.
