Rethinking Early Years Education

Here at N, we’re on a mission to Rethink Early Years, offering a fresh educational outlook to prepare children for life in the modern world. Working with leading early years experts, we’ve blended our own unique curriculum, taking influence from a variety of learning philosophies including Reggio Emilia, Bruner, Forest School and Montessori. We were recently named the UK’s highest quality nursery group and we believe that our bespoke approach, combined with the learning outlined by the EYFS, supports all of our children to play and explore, be active learners and critical thinkers.

Our bespoke curriculum is split into four key pillars of learning:

Holistic health

Self expression

Global responsibility

Inventive ideas

Learn about our curriculum

The N Day

Drop off

We recognise that mornings can be a challenge, and we’re committed to doing everything we can to ensure a positive and warm start to the day.

Child-led play

Children are able to freely play with our many resources including our art studio, dress-up stations and the
N library.

Mealtimes

All N meals are prepared from scratch by our in-house chefs. We have family mealtimes where the children eat as a group with their key educators.

Educator-led learning

Every day our educators will lead a small group or individual sessions covering a wide range of topics, including yoga and cooking.

Outdoor learning

Our gardens provide the perfect backdrop for physical activities such as climbing, ball games and obstacle courses, as well as Forest School-inspired learning, planting and water play.

Sleep and rest

Our nursery rooms are designed to convert into cosy sleeping spaces, while children who no longer require a sleep can still relax in our designed ‘hygge’ corners.

Pick up

At home time, parents are encouraged to come in and chat with the educators and hear all about their child’s day and accomplishments.

Menu

We’ve worked with experts to make sure that we deliver a balanced menu that supports every child’s developmental needs. Our chefs prepare fresh meals in our cafe kitchen, everyday.

The N Tunbridge Wells Management Team

Charlotte

Nursery Manager

Charlotte has over 10 years of experience in early years education. Seeing her own children develop and step into their own personalities inspired her to get into education herself.

Leanne Brown

Front of House Manager

Raised and educated in Scotland, Leanne holds an NVQ in childcare and education. Her journey in the childcare sector began after school, with the exception of a travel break. Now she's an active member of a local running group and enjoys boxfit in her spare time.

Rachel

Deputy Nursery Manager

Rachel is a mum of 2 boys, and in her spare time, loves to explore the outdoors with them. She studied costume construction at university before switching gears and becoming an educator, a role she’s now held for over 10 years. She has an Early Years Teacher Status and feels privileged to be a part of the children’s learning journeys.
