FAQ

Our child:adult ratio is 1:3. That is less than half that of many other preschools and nurseries.

We create fantastic activities daily and go out to the parks every day. 

We take care of children 1 - 8 years of age, but our focus ison 2+. We are known for our amazing full-day preschool.

The location is one of London's best for children, very close to parks and playgrounds and your child will enjoy daily learning activities tailored to their stage of development using the EYFS framework. We work with children INDIVIDUALLY.

A fully computerised development tracking system similar to that found in Primary Schools: You will be able to log in to your own on-line area of Annie's Nest at any time, and track your child's development, see photos of your child engaged in our learning activities, check registers etc.

Fantastic people!

Babies can be with us for 1 or more days per week, but we much prefer if they are with us for a minimum of 2 days per week. Preschool children must be with us for a minimum of 2 days per week.

Each day must be a minimum of 8 hours, for us to assure their complete super-charged development.

Our notice period is 1 month, but ONLY to the 1st of a month.

As in all other preschools and nurseries you pay for the place, so the cost is the same if you suddenly decide to run on holiday to Florida for a month or similar.

We do not provide the main meal. We provide amazing days and activities (And also breakfast and fruit!)

We are happy to share our fees, as we are probably the least expensive nursery in Twickenham.

A full-time place at Annies cost £ 1473 pcm at Annies.

This is of course a lot of money, but compare that to:

The £ 1599 pcm a full-time place cost in the nursery on the High Street...
The £ 1646 pcm a full-time place cost in the nursery up the road...
or the £ 1829 pcm it cost at all of the nurseries now owned by the big nursery group we shan't mention by name :-)

 

We don't provide the main meals or nappies, but even after you factor in some food and nappies, we are MUCH cheaper.

Please note that the fees listed below are full fees before any funding is deducted.

The different types of funding need to be DEDUCTED from the above fees to arrive at the amount you actually pay!

Check which funding you are eligible for here: https://www.childcarechoices.gov.uk/

 

Funding rules are complex, offer varying hourly rates, and often only covers 9 months of the year. 

As a VERY general rule of thumb, you can expect at least the following savings per month if funding is spread out to cover all 12 months of the year  AND you can use so-called 'Free Hours' AND Tax Free Childcare at the SAME time as long as you are eligible for the funding. For more details see childcarechoices.gov.uk:

  • 30 Hours Free Childcare 3 & 4 Year olds: approx. £ 500 off each invoice per child per month all 12 months of the year
  • 15 Hours Free Childcare 3 Year olds: approx. £ 250 off each invocie per child per month all 12 months of the year
  • Tax Free Childcare (All ages, all incomes: approx.  £ 165 off each invocie per child per month all 12 months of the year
  • Tax Credits are all individual to your circumstances and needs based
  • Childcare vouchers depend on tax rate. As a rule of thumb you will save approx. £ 100 per month all 12 months of the year
  • 15 Hours Free Childcare 2 Year olds: approx. £ 300 per child per month all 12 months of the year 

 

The above funding amounts are all approximate, conservative figures designed to assist you in quickly get an idea of actual monthly costs to you. Invoices that include funding will look far more complex and include free hours.
