We believe in lifelong learning

At N, we hire amazing people and empower them to reach their full potential. N Team members are in the driving seat with their learning, and we support with a mix of development initiatives and an unparalleled learning environment. Our team decide on career goals and are supported through regular meetings and performance reviews to work towards them.

We’ve set our sights on becoming the highest quality, and most loved, early years education group in the UK and have the opportunity to impact thousands of children and families. As we scale, our internal talent pool is the first place we look for new roles to take our business to the next stage.
