Why N Whetstone?

We couldn’t be more excited about our N Family Club right here in Whetstone, conveniently located a five-minute walk from the station.

Our Whetstone nursery is designed to support every element of our early years curriculum. The nursery is a purpose-built modern space that has large playrooms filled with natural light and clean air thanks to our hi-spec air filtration system. There’s a specialist art and cooking room, while outside, the garden comes complete with a sandpit, mud kitchen and water play area.

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

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.


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.


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.

N Whetstone Management Team


Front of House

Flora moved to London from the Philippines to do her MBA. At first, she was only working with children on Saturdays, but as she realized how much she was looking forward to those days and how much she found joy in teaching children and working with their families, she decided to pursue a full-time career in the early years. She has two grown children of her own and is very proud of how kind and respectful they are!


Support Manager

Maddiy has been working in the field of childcare since 2006 and holds an NVQ level 3 in childcare as well as a degree in business management. She has a deep passion for working with children and is dedicated to bringing awe and wonder into their everyday lives.
