Balham Nursery

Why N Balham?

We’re so excited to be welcoming N Balham to the N Family! A sensitive restoration of a beautiful period building, our space is filled with character while equally purpose-built to support every element of our early years curriculum. Packed full of features including a dedicated art studio and mini children’s kitchen, the huge garden has an adventure playground, gardening patch, sports area, tee pees, outdoor pizza oven and fire pit.

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. Our first nursery – which opened in Stoke Newington in 2017 – was recently rated ‘Ofsted Outstanding’, 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.

Outside of nursery hours, our spaces turn in to community Family Clubs – centring around a monthly programme of one-off special events aimed at both families and parents. Access to this, alongside all meals, snacks, trips, formula and nappies, are included in our fees.

We’ve worked with the former Head of Nutrition at Jamie Oliver, Laura Matthews, 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.
