    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 4.467 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Evolution Childcare @ Solway House 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 15 positive Reviews (75 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 7 Reviews ÷ 15 Target = 0.467

My great-granddaughter has attended Evolution 3 mornings per week and I have found staff and manager very friendly, polite and very responsive to the young children's needs. The nursery is very clean and well equipped. The system and feedback are amazing. The room manager is always a star and is loved by children, parents and visitors. Evolution has made my great-granddaughter's life richer for being here.

My son started Evolution Childcare at 6 months of age and has continued to thrive in the baby room.
He adores his key worker and because they limit the number of workers in the baby room he has built meaningful relationships with all the nursery staff especially one lady who he developed a bond with very early on.
I find all of the staff emotionally intelligent and responsive to my son's changing needs. They are creative, imaginative, optimistic and caring.
The baby room shows great attention to detail with photos of the children throughout. The facilities and resources are outstanding with a new sensory area and age appropriate toys.
The manager and her team are competent, professional and have great communications skills. I would highly recommend Evolution Childcare.

My 2-year-old has been at Solway House for 6 months now and she absolutely loves it. The staff are really friendly and accommodating and try to support the parents as well as the children. The nursery facilities are second to none and the level of communication with staff and management is excellent. I feel completely assured that my daughter is well cared for and stimulated, with a range of creative and exploring activities. They have also been good at looking after her dietary requirements and the management is efficient and organised. In general, it feels like a happy place to be and I wouldn't want anything less for my daughter's childcare. I can't recommend them highly enough.

Can't speak more highly of the nursery and the staff. Staff from the dinner lady up know the name of my daughter and everyone from all classes interacts with her. The staff are always happy and friendly and coming up with new ideas for the children. There is a fantastic play area outside and loads of different areas inside.
If you're unsure about leaving your little one for 1st time don't be. The rooms have CCTV and you can watch how they interact from reception.
Another cool idea and great for safety is the kitchen window. Children can watch the dinner being prepared and be completely safe.
The nursery is very modern with great facilities. But what makes it is the staff from the manageress downwards, you're always welcomed by a lovely smile and an excitement to get the best out your child. If you need help in any shape or form this nursery will interact with parents and children equally.
My daughter will be so upset when she leaves for school. But she will be back for holiday club.

Our daughter has attended Solway House Nursery from the day it opened.

It is an amazing environment, with large indoor and outdoor areas, and a fantastic range of toys, books and activities.

The staff are amazing, there is a lovely family atmosphere. The managers have been great at accommodating any change in days / extra days when circumstances have required.

I have never felt so assured and relaxed leaving my little girl in the hands of a nursery, she has made herself very at home and has so much fun.

It has brought her on so much, we love the online portal system which is private to ourselves and provides photos, videos and updates of what she has been up to and the skills she's developing.

She always has her breakfast and lunch at nursery which she really enjoys. It's a well-balanced menu which encourages her to try new things.

I have recommended the nursery to several friends and family members, they all love it too!

Danielle Hall, Nursery Manager at Evolution Childcare @ Solway House responded to this review on 28 Apr 2017:

Thank you for such a lovely review.

My son joined the nursery in Jan 2017 when he was 12 months old and I can't recommend it enough. My husband and I searched for a long time to find a nursery for our first child and we definitely picked the right one. He has developed in confidence and progressed so much in such a short period of time. The girls are amazing and I feel so happy leaving him with them. He gets excited to go to the nursery and this puts me at ease. The nursery is extremely spacious, clean and modern.

As a first-time mum, I didn't know what to look for in choosing a nursery but from first the visit, the atmosphere just felt right and I can honestly say we made the right decision. I love nursery days, as does my daughter. She explores things I would never think to try, her days are really varied. The outdoor area was a positive when we viewed, as it's really private and secure. I look forward to their updates on Tapestry when I'm not there. Every single time I've walked through the door, I'm greeted with warm smiles, not just from my daughter but each and every one of the staff and it really shows in how comfortable she's settled it with them. Not to mention how much she's developed since being in their care. The staff listen and support you through leaving your little one which creates a trusting relationship, which is imperative as essentially they are helping to raise my daughter with me. I would thoroughly recommend this nursery.
