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 4.946 for Evolution Childcare @ The Abbey Nursery School is calculated as follows: ( (159 Excellents x 5) + (9 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 168 Ratings = 4.946

  • 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 5 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Evolution Childcare @ The Abbey Nursery School is based on 14 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 14 positive Reviews (70 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 14 Reviews ÷ 14 Target = 1.000

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

The staff from the baby room are amazing with our daughter. They helped settle her in well and now our little girl doesn't want to come home some days! Highly recommended and the kids always seem really happy.

My little girl started here a few weeks ago, she's only 9 months old and I was worried about leaving her. The staff at the nursery have been absolutely fab, to the girls on reception to the girls in the baby room. On the first day, I got a little gift bag and an email at lunchtime with pictures of how she was doing. It was such a lovely thought and really helped me to stop worrying. Every week now when I pick her up now she's smiling her head off. They made settling into the nursery really easy for both her and me.

My little boy started attending Evolution Childcare @ The Abbey Nursery School when he had just turned 2 years old. He is now 3 and we have recently increased his hours to 2 full days. On the days he isn’t at nursery, he asks when he is going? He absolutely loves it there and has done since his first day. His speech and knowledge have come on in leaps and bounds since he started there. He comes home chatting about his friends and telling us what he’s been doing there. The Abbey has allowed him to flourish by ensuring they tailor his learning by incorporating things he loves (in this case that would be dinosaurs!)

As my son loves it so much, we recently enrolled our 17-month-old daughter at The Abbey. We were slightly worried she wouldn’t settle in as well because she’s much wary than her brother, however, it was lovely to see her immediately start building a relationship with her key worker and she goes in with no problem!

I couldn’t rate The Abbey any higher, I think the staff are wonderful and the facilities great!

Choosing the Abbey Nursery for our son was the best decision we could have made, he's come on and progressed really well and enjoys his time at the nursery, you can tell the staff really do care about the children and the quality of care they provide, the nursery environment is of a really high standard compared to other nurseries we viewed.

I would definitely recommend this nursery to others.

My child attends 1 full day & a half day at this new nursery. We first visited on a recommendation from neighbours & since then have noticed many other local families attend & are satisfied & happy.
The staff are caring, kind, polite, friendly & warm & this is most important for our family.
They have a range of fantastic resources & my child talks about & shows the things he has learnt there.
There is usually good communication between nursery & families. Lots of ways to interact: phone, email, in person, family & capture websites, notices.
Meals are cooked on site & are nutritious & of a good standard.
My child has bonded with staff & made friends & we have been happy with our choice.
Displays & themes are interesting & high value.
This nursery is an inviting, clean, stimulating, caring learning environment.

My 15-month-old has been at the abbey for 3 months. I’ve found every single member of staff lovely and I love that my little boy has formed such a close bond with his key worker. Every day we get a log of what he’s been up to and Christmas was made extra special with him coming home with things he had made and pictures of him. Would recommend to anyone especially if your baby loves a cuddle like mine.

The staff at the Abbey are professional and holistic in their approach to caring for children. They listen and have a genuine passion for making each day as enjoyable as the next. I feel confident when leaving my son in their care and communication is excellent.

The Abbey nursery school offer fantastic care for my son who has been attending since he was 9 months old. He gets loads of love, attention, stimulation and fun throughout the day. I like getting the daily reports so I can see what he has been up to and track his development and progress.
There are plenty of toys and games for the children to explore in the rooms and the outdoor space is good too.
The chef makes lovely varied and healthy home cooked food and it’s very reassuring to know that he is so well looked after when I am at work.
I would highly recommend the Abbey nursery.

The Abbey is a fantastic nursery, our little boy has been there since it first opened and loves it there!

All staff and management show so much support and encouragement towards anything he does and he enjoys going.

He has made some lovely friends and tells me what he’s been doing after every day!

My son currently attends Evolution @ The Abbey two days a week and we couldn’t be happier with the care he receives. He’s happy to be dropped off in the mornings and has had a fantastic day every time we pick him up. I like that the children play outside a lot and do tonnes of different activities that you just wouldn’t be able to do at home, all whilst socialising with other children. The staff are very patient and caring and always give us a good run down at the end of the day detailing what my son has been up to. Would highly recommend!

Since my little boy started he always has such good fun. All the staff are so friendly and welcoming. Before my little one started I was so nervous to leave him to go to work, but all the ladies helped him settle right in and he is always entertained, playing and learning. A great menu of fresh food is served and my little one eats everything on offer. Brilliant nursery.

My son has been attending The Abbey since last year and his development has come on so much. He thoroughly enjoys going and has great relationships with all staff. My son always tells me what he has been doing which reflects the brilliant planned activities the staff do.

Kerry, Operations Director at Evolution Childcare @ The Abbey Nursery School responded to this review on 16 Aug 2017:

We are delighted to hear about the wonderful experiences your child has within our nursery. Thank you for taking the time to write such a positive review, we will ensure that this is passed over to our wonderful team.

My son settled into The Abbey very quickly and I believe this was due to the emphasis the staff placed on family bonds early on with the children. After only being at the nursery for a few months, my son no longer gets upset when I drop him off in the nursery, instead, he is keen to get playing with the other children and staff. The staff are always very engaged when the children and the report we received is excellent and the standard of care brilliant. If my son is ever upset, he is always comforted by lots of cuddles. I know he feels safe and secure there, which is very reassuring for me as a parent.

Bethan, Nursery Manager at Evolution Childcare @ The Abbey Nursery School responded to this review on 11 Aug 2017:

Thank you for your kind words. We certainly do make sure the children and staff have positive relationships, as this plays a major part in children's development.

My son has been at The Abbey now for two months and is settled and happy. I feel confident he is receiving great care and having lots of enjoyment whilst at the nursery. All staff are polite and friendly and I always enjoy hearing about my sons day at the handover when I collect him. Over the two months that he has been attending nursery, his development has really come along and I believe he will have many fun years here!
