Whitings Hill Nursery

Welcome to Whitings Hill Nursery

Whitings Hill Nursery is a purpose built, high quality nursery with spacious outdoor area located on the edge of Barnet surrounded by beautiful, green, open spaces.

We serve a multi-cultural community and are proud to have a committed and talented team of staff and governors that enables us to foster and nurture all the talents of our pupils.

Our highly qualified team of practitioners are experienced in child development and early years teaching, with a passion for providing the very best learning experience for children. We have high expectations of achievement, attainment and behaviour and we are committed to every child achieving their absolute best regardless of background or starting point.

We believe that true education is a result of a partnership between parents, children and the school and we will strive for that close co-operation, which will give your child the very best foundation for his/her educational career. We believe that happy children learn best in an environment where they feel safe and secure.
