  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.9 out of 5 from 13 positive Reviews in the last 12 months.

  • 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 4.916 for Evolution Childcare @ Shadsworth Business Park is calculated as follows: ( (142 Excellents x 5) + (13 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 155 Ratings = 4.916

    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.

    The 4.929 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Evolution Childcare @ Shadsworth Business Park is based on 13 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). 13 Reviews ÷ 14 Target = 0.929

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

What a fantastic nursery! My little girl has attended for around 3 weeks now, doing one and a half days and she has already come home singing her numbers in Spanish! She's only just turned 3. The staff are so friendly and the nursery itself is spotless. You can also tell by the way the staff are with all the children that it's not just a job to them, it's their passion. I couldn't be happier leaving my child here knowing she is in safe hands.

Could not find a better place and people to care for my son. Staff are very invested, constantly going over and above in looking for a variety of activities for children. Their work does not stop Monday to Friday. Every week I pick up a happy boy and at the end of the day, that's all that matters. Keep up the good work!

I just love seeing my son happy and when he comes home saying he has homework, he looks forward to doing it and that's because of the way it's set out, it's fun and it's how it should be. From day one of moving to this area our son has settled in to the nursery and the attention the staff give him is superb.

My daughter started this nursery back in September in the baby room and after a few weeks of getting used to it, she loves it. She always goes in smiling in the morning and there are lots of fun things to do.
The nursery looks amazing and offers brilliant facilities.

My son started this nursery back in September 2016 and I cannot fault it in any way, the staff are amazing and the manager, Sarah, is great. She always replies to any queries and is happy to help in any way she can. My son loves the nursery and they go all out on many occasions such as valentines, Halloween and even grandparents days etc. I travel across town - 20 mins for my son to attend as I think it's a really good nursery and the staff truly have the kids best interests at heart. Thanks Evolution.

I had the luxury of having a family member look after my first child but after relocating I needed to search for a childcare provider for my second. I was very dubious and nervous and did a lot of research and looked around a good few nurseries. When I looked around Evolution, there was absolutely no comparison to anything we had seen before and it was an easy decision to make. The facilities are really good the food they provide is proper and decent and the sensory room is fabulous. Many of the employees are mothers themselves which for me was really important. Every morning when we arrive we are greeted with smiles by the staff and it's really nice. They very good at keeping you informed at what's happened through the day each day with your child. Most importantly my child seems happy there. I genuinely feel lucky to have my child in such a good nursery.

Going back to work following maternity can be such a stressful and nervous time for both parents and child/children. As my date was fast approaching for my return to work, I was worryingly seeking a nursery that suited both me and my baby. I came across Evolution Childcare @ Shadsworth Business Park. I was wowed as soon as I entered the building and at this point, it was still having the final touches added before it opened. From the moment I arrived, I was welcomed with friendly staff, managers, and even the owner (which I find this to have a personal touch). Since my daughter has attended from opening, I have seen the nursery develop, and this keeps growing. The staff are qualified and experienced with the children. The surroundings are second to none with bright colours and eye-catching displays. Choosing this nursery made my return to work a stress-free time knowing my baby is looked after in good hands! I would recommend to anyone seeking a clean, professional, environment for your child to be.

My 2-year-old daughter started here full time a few months ago and I can honestly say, moving her from her previous nursery nearby was the best thing I've ever done.
She is so so happy here. Her little face beams as she shows me what she's achieved that day. She never wants to leave.
The staff are extremely friendly. They genuinely love their job and it's clear they want to be there.
There's no comparison to her previous nursery.
At other local nurseries (and I've visited a lot), it was blatantly obvious the staff members are put out or don't want the be there. Nobody smiles or bothers to talk to you. At Evolution, it's more like walking into a warm family bubble of fun and happy smiley faces.
The whole place has a warm and welcoming feel to it.
There is something new happening every week.
My daughter is without a doubt staying here until she goes to school and even then, I'll be looking at sending her in the school holiday.
Absolutely amazing nursery.

My daughter attends the weekly stay and play session that the nursery offers. She absolutely loves going and has started to form good relationships with staff and other children. The quality of the provision is second to none with high-quality resources teamed with highly qualified staff.
Each room caters for the different age-related expectations and the activities are planned weekly to encourage development. Since attending the nursery I have notice that my daughter has developed her communication skills and her gross and fine motor skills through the wide variety of resources and activities that are offered. I would certainly recommend this nursery to fellow mums and dads.

My daughter started here at the beginning of August and absolutely loves it. The staff are friendly and she has bonded well with them. They keep her entertained all day and worked with me to get as much formation as possible to enable a good experience. She loves to play outdoors and the outdoor space here is amazing - lots to do and lots of space to run around. I also take her to a stay and play session and again staff make you feel welcome, tailor activities to the children and provide a range of things for them to do. I'd definitely recommend it to anyone looking for childcare.

Amazing nursery, lovely dedicated staff. Definitely the best nursery in Blackburn. I love that they have a sensory room and the fact that even if my daughter takes her first steps at nursery they will record it and send it over an app as well as me being able to send them things that she has done outside of the nursery.
