Annies Nest has been a wonderful place for our son starting out in the world. As our first child, I was naturally feeling anxious and guilty about sending him to nursery when he was 13 months. But I needn't have as he loved every minute from the day he started. The whole team at Annies are amazing with the children and really make them feel loved, it's lovely to see. I rarely see any crying children being dropped off, as I do at the other nurseries. After nearly 2 years we are very sad to be relocating to a different area, and will miss the team at Annies very much!

I cannot say enough good things about Annie’s Nest. Honestly, 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. I would not even call Annie’s Nest a Nursery, but call it a home away from home, where they are well cared for loved by the wonderful staff that Annie and Kenny (owners) spend so much time to make sure they are the best in the business. Importantly, the staff at Annie’s actually LOVE the children, and are not just going through the motions of doing their jobs. Things we love about Annie’s: 1. The staff smiles, laughs, and love being with children. This behaviour reflects on your children’s happiness and you can see it every day. Honestly, our children would look forward to going to Annie’s after the weekend! 2. They go outside EVERY DAY and play. Fresh air and exercise is something children need. 3. It feels like you are dropping your kids off at a relative’s home to watch them, instead of a nursery because the staff really enjoys what they are doing and you get to know them as individuals. 4. The space. Annie’s Nest has a large building where children can move, dance, and run about. 5. Kenny and Annie invite the parents out to social events, have Christmas and Birthday parties (all well attended and fun) so you get to know the other parents and staff. 6. They teach your children basics so they are ready for Reception. The kids even learn some Spanish! 7. Finally promptness in communication about your children being sick, how they are doing and their willingness to improve on your needs and your children’s needs on an individual basis. They realise that each child is different and the needs of the parents are different. 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.

My daughter has been at Annie's Next for the past 2 years and is leaving this summer to go to school in September. We have loved having her at Annie's and will be really sad to say goodbye (though we'll be keeping in touch). Leaving your child in a nursery can be so hard (somehow especially hard with the baby of the family), but we've definitely felt that every day she's been surrounded by warm, energetic, bright people who really care about and understand her and want to bring the best out in her. The nursery is always clean and bright and has amazing kit (toys, books, bouncy castles!) as well as taking them out every day for long, exciting (energy-sapping) adventures at the local parks. I'd definitely recommend it!
Our daughter has been going to Annie's Nest for a year now. We are delighted with a number of aspects of the way the nursery is run. The staff are extremely personable and caring and this is demonstrated by the way our daughter is so happy when she comes home every day ! The range of activities is very good and the facilities and equipment are modern and extensive. We receive a diary every day with details of all activities, a number of photos of our daughter and comments and regular reports on her progress. We would highly recommend Annie's Nest to any prospective parents !
My two children have been at Annies- my son left last year to go to school and my daughter will leave after the summer to go to school too. We are very pleased with the nursery and the activities done for the kids. The daily electronic diary is excellent to see what the kids have done during the day. Staff is very caring, loyal, and committed and very accommodating with late work commitments. My kids were very happy to stay there and my daughter will miss it, especially her little friends and teachers!!! It is a nice modern property with enough space to run different activities during the day, especially rainy days. We can highly recommend it.
I have a daughter who is currently at Annie's and my son has just left to go to school. I have been coming to the nursery for nearly 4 years now and can't praise the staff high enough. Both my children love coming to the nursery. The staff are friendly and caring and are always free to chat about my children providing feedback on their day. What is also great is its location in relation to the station and also the flexibility it offers with regards to a breakfast hour with drop off from 7.30am. This has proved extremely useful when work commitments call. This is something that wasn't offered in other local nurseries at the time I was looking. In short I would highly recommend this nursery to anyone!
Our son has been attending Annie's nest now for 3 years and our daughter for 6 months. We are already really sad just thinking about our son leaving nursery next year for Primary school, as he absolutely loves being at Annie's and so does his little sister. We couldn’t be happier with the care and attention they receive and they have clearly built strong bonds with members of staff. We are also very impressed with how both children are coming on with their development and love that the nursery put on special activities weekly to enhance their learning even more – “Sports ” ,“Spanish classes”, "yoga for kids" "zumba" days always bring an added enthusiasm in the mornings to get both children ready and out of the door. We love Annie, Kenny and all the Team
