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.

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.

Our approach

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!
