Detailed Breakdown

  • a) 5 Points are available for the Average Rating of all Reviews over all time. 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 4.904 for Evolution Childcare @ The Willows Nursery School is calculated as follows: ( (75 Excellents x 5) + (8 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 83 Ratings = 4.904

  • b) 5 Points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 12 months. If there are no Positive Reviews in the last 12 months, then 2.5 points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 2 years. 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 Day Nursery to friends and family?'

    The 5 points available are broken down as follows:

    1. 4 points are available for the first 5 Positive Reviews, 3 points for the first Positive Review and then 0.25 Points for each of the next 4 Positive Reviews.

    2. 1 point is available for reaching a target number of Positive Reviews based on 20% of the number of registered maximum number of service users. If the target is partially reached then that proportion of 1 point is given. eg a Day Nursery with 50 registered maximum number of service users has a target of 10 Positive Reviews, if it has 10 or more Positive Reviews it will receive 1 point, if it has 7 reviews will receive 0.7 points.

    3. If there are no Positive Reviews in the last 12 months, then 2.5 points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 2 years. The calculation is the same as above, except the points are divided by 2.

    The 4.368 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Evolution Childcare @ The Willows Nursery School is based on 7 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 4

    2. Target of 19 positive Reviews (95 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 7 Reviews ÷ 19 Target = 0.368

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

The first time my son went to the nursery, he played around and didn’t feel shy or uncomfortable at all. I think that was a good sign. And now he loves the willows and happy to go every week. I like their monthly activity sheet which is always full of well-planned activities throughout the month and keep changing, also the parents waiting area. I always sit in the sofa to read one or two books before taking my son home. The nursery is big and full of lovely teachers and children.

This nursery is quite simply outstanding. My son attended the nursery for 4 years and my daughter is currently in the reception class. They both adore the staff who have a contagious energy and enthusiasm.

It has been wonderful watching my daughter grow in confidence; she now skips into the nursery and can't wait to see her teachers and friends. My son misses the staff now that he is at school and always asks to go back to visit!

The effort that goes into making the learning environment a welcoming and enriching place is second to none. The displays, resources and outdoor environment are fabulous and my children loved lessons in the dance studio.

As an early years teacher myself, I have the opportunity to visit lots of other settings and The Willows certainly stands out as outstanding.

Thank you to all of the staff for your hard work, it really is appreciated. It enables me to go to work with confidence knowing that my children are truly happy. I can not recommend this nursery enough!

Lovely nursery. The facilities are great and all the staff are lovely and genuinely care for all the children, my little girl started The Willows when she was just 9 months old. She has grown so much and learns something new every day. The Willows has helped her develop into a bubbly and confident little girl.

I cannot fault The Willows, the staff and the rooms are impeccable. It is slightly more expensive than other nurseries but you get what you pay for. My son has been here for just under 2 years and he has thrived since starting full time. They go above and beyond with activities not only to keep the children entertained but to teach them new things that they would rarely learn elsewhere such a sign language. The garden area is the best I have seen from the other nurseries we visited. I would definitely recommend as they provide the best care possible.

A lot of activities for children every month, even if they are in nursery only 15 hours per week as my daughter. Lovely staff, lovely place.

Evolution Childcare @ Willows in Warrington is truly an ideal place parents are looking for. The staff are very understanding, kind and attentive to the needs of children. They come across as very patient. Special mention to the manager and staff who always welcomes you with a smile when you enter/leave the nursery. The nursery has good space outside for children's outdoor activities and the staff are always keen on the safety of the children. We are happy to recommend Evolution!

A great place for a child to develop. Great staff who are friendly and very helpful. My son likes to go here and on his off days where he doesn't want to go, the staff really help out to make him feel at ease. I can't say anything bad because there is nothing bad to say.
