Conveniently positioned between Totteridge and Whetstone tube station and Oakleigh Park rail station, Whetstone Day Nursery and Preschool opened in 2003 as Magic Nursery Whetstone before joining the Bright Horizons family. Our excellent reputation is the result of our close working relationships with our parents and the fantastic team spirit of our dedicated, experienced and qualified staff who always have the children as their priority and plan stimulating activities to give the perfect prelude to school.
We use an industry leading online learning journey called Tapestry with which we can work even more closely with you to nurture your child's development and confidence at all levels.
Where possible we look to offer flexible booking patterns and a range of funding options, including the government's 30 hours funded childcare* provision. To request pricing and availability, please request a call back by clicking the button below.

I have been in the childcare industry for over 20yrs, working my way up from student to nursery assistant, to room leader, deputy and now a nursery manager. I have worked in Australia for many years before returning to the UK in 2015 where I joined the Magic Daycare Nursery Group working alongside my colleagues to open our Muswell Hill nursery, I then joined the Whetstone team in 2016 and along with dedicated staff team we worked together to maintain our Ofsted ‘Outstanding’ rating for the 2nd time. We have since joined the Bright Horizons family and our knowledge and development continues to grow as we are introduced to new things such as our ‘Growing Programmes’ and Boogie Mites. I am also the nursery SENCO and work alongside the local authority to support those little ones who may need additional support in their development.
From a very young age, childcare has always been my passion. I have been in childcare for over 14 years and I started my career as student helper before I became a nursery assistant at age 18. I then started my career as level 3 qualified nursery practitioner in a nursery now known as Bright Horizons Southgate. There, I spent 1 year as a nursery nurse, 5 years as a room leader and 2 years as the third in charge which has led me to my current deputy manager role in the beautiful Bright Horizons Whetstone nursery. I truly believe in the Bright Horizons mission in motion and take pride in watching the children grow and develop to their full potential during their time at Bright Horizons.
The Bright Horizons passion and enthusiasm for providing high-quality care isn’t just common knowledge within our own business – we’ve also gained some impressive accolades from external sources for excellence as both a childcare provider, and as an employer. We are the only childcare company to have been listed for the last 11 years as one of the country’s top 50 “Great Places to Work” by the Great Place to Work Institute.
