Detailed Breakdown of Review Score

The maximum Review Score for a Day Nursery is 10, which is made up of Average Rating of Reviews (maximum of 5 points) and Number of Reviews (maximum of 5 points) in the last 24 months:

  • a) 5 Points are available for the Average Rating of all Reviews in the last 24 months. For each review the Day Nursery / service is rated Excellent, Good, Satisfactory, Poor or Very Poor on a number of areas eg Staff, Management etc. The Day Nursery receives points for each rating as follows: Excellent = 5. Good = 4. Satisfactory = 3. Poor = 2. Very Poor = 1. These points are added up and then divided by the total number of completed ratings to generate the average rating.

    The Average Rating of 4.942 for Annie's Nest is calculated as follows: ( (97 Excellents x 5) + (6 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 103 Ratings = 4.942

  • b) 5 Points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 24 months. A Positive Review is defined as any Review with 'Extremely Likely' or 'Likely' in answer to the question 'How likely are you to recommend this nursery to friends and family?'

    The 4.9 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Annie's Nest is based on 9 positive Reviews in the last 24 months and is calculated as per below:

    The 5 points available are broken down as follows:

    • i) 4 points are available for the first 10 Positive Reviews in the last 24 months; 3 points for the first Positive Review, and then 0.125 Points for each of the next four Positive Reviews and then 0.1 Points for the next five Positive Reviews. (1st = 3.000, 2nd = 0.125, 3rd = 0.125, 4th = 0.125, 5th = 0.125, 6th = 0.100, 7th = 0.100, 8th = 0.100, 9th = 0.100, 10th = 0.100) 3 + 0.125 + 0.125 + 0.125 + 0.125 + 0.1 + 0.1 + 0.1 + 0.1 = 3.9

    • ii) 1 point is available for the number of Positive Reviews reaching 20% of the number of registered child places in the last 24 months. If this number is partially reached, then that proportion of 1 point is given. eg a Day Nursery registered for a maximum of 50 child places has to reach 10 Positive Reviews to receive 1 point, if it has 7 reviews it will receive 0.7 points. 20% of the 30 number of registered child places is 6, which has been reached with 9 Positive reviews. Points = 1

  • When a Review is submitted by someone who has previously submitted a Review, only the latest Review will count towards the Review Score.

  • If a Day Nursery does not have a review in the last 24 months. then it will not have a Review Score.

9.8 Annie's Nest has a Review Score of 9.8 (9.842) out of 10 based on reviews in the last 2 years. Over all time Annie's Nest has 13 reviews with an Average Rating of 4.9 out of 5.

My 3.5 year old daughter has been at Annie’s since her first birthday and she could not be happier!
She is excited to go every single day. The teachers are loving and caring and also teach the children a lot in a fun and thoughtful way with themed weeks every week.

Lovely nursery. Our kid loves it! The teacher is very qualified and enjoys the interaction with the kiddies - a happy place. They have so many activities and go out whenever they can to discover the world. Nothing to complain about!

My son has been attending Annie’s Nest since he was two. When he first joined the nursery, English was his second language. He is now a very confident, little English speaking chatterbox, who made many lovely friends at the nursery. He has had many memorable and fun days. The teachers and the management
have been very caring and inspiring him with lots of creative and enjoyable activities. I couldn’t have asked for more!

My son has been going to Annie’s Nest since he was one, so six months in, the staff are amazing with the children; the majority are university educated or have child learning qualifications. I love the international feel of this nursery, they employ a lot of Spanish speaking staff so the kids can also
pick up a second language. The detail in the daily diary is amazing, it’s a fantastic app. The staff while always busy look happy and that to me is the first sign I look for. They have a packed day with loads of activities but also lots of fun times outdoors.

I cannot recommend this nursery enough! The management and staff who work here are so completely wonderful. Both of our children have gone to Annie’s Nest and it has been the most beautifully nurturing environment. Our second child will be starting school soon and we will be keeping in touch with everyone!

Our son has been at Annie's Nest for 1.5 years, and we can not recommend it highly enough. We looked at 4 nurseries in Twickenham but chose Annie's. The staff are caring, friendly and genuinely love their jobs.
There is a much more favourable teacher-to-child ratio than offered at other nurseries
we saw, and the extra attention has really helped in our son learning and enjoying the environment. We are amazed at what he learns every week!
Every day we receive an online 'diary' and pictures of what he did, and most importantly, the children are taken out for fresh air and to local playgrounds in Twickenham every day. Our son loves going to nursery so we are very happy with Annie's Nest!

Annie's Nest has been a wonderful experience for our family especially our son who loves it!!! It's a shame we relocated but this nursery is simply the best. The staff are extremely kind and friendly. They always have happy, welcoming and smiling faces. They are very good with the children and my son
always used to look forward to going to Annie's, even wanted to go at the weekends!! My son developed immensely in the short time that he was there. From a really shy baby, he became very confident and suddenly he can't stop talking. Thank you to all the staff at Annie's, who are very dedicated and caring. Keep up the good work, I can't praise you enough!!

Wow. What a place. Our first son spent 3.5 years here and we were incredibly sad when it was time to leave. Our second son is here now and also loving it so we are very happy. The kindest, most caring, bright, lovely, warm, thoughtful bunch of people. We only have amazing things to say about Annie's
Nest and are so grateful to all of the staff. Thank you to the Owners/Managers. If you can get yourself a place here, you'll be very happy. x

I can't recommend Annie's Nest highly enough. What a wonderful, loving environment, with an unmatched small-group, teacher-per-child ratio and a carefully considered, structured approach to learning and development, done in a really fun way. Everyone who works there is just lovely. This review sounds
overly gushy, but that is because Annie's Nest really is something special. So glad we found it, and very sad our daughter is leaving.

I cannot say enough good things about Annie’s Nest. It has been one of the best things we as a family experienced in London, as it is so crucial where your children are during the long hours of the day when you are at work. The children are well cared for and loved by the wonderful staff that the owners
spend so much time to make sure they are the best in the business.
Things we love about Annie’s:
1. The staff love being with children.
2. They go outside every day and play.
3. It feels like you are dropping your kids off at a relative’s home to watch them, instead of a nursery.
4. They teach your children so they are ready for Reception. The kids even learn Spanish!
5. We also received photos and news about our kids every day after work.

We no longer live in London, but by far Annie’s was something we will always hold close to your hearts as it really gave us comfort knowing they were at such a wonderful place in those crucial years. You simply will not find better.
