Sarah Fox

Nursery Manager

Having worked with children from 0-12, and managed a variety of settings I have developed a wide knowledge of Childcare and Education. I am a Qualified Early Years Teacher, plus I am Paediatric First Aid Trained, Safeguarding Levels 1 & 2, and I have completed a large amount of Early Years Professional development courses. I am also an Early Years Trainer and I have spoken at conferences and Universities about Early Years Topics.

I have extensive leadership and management experience, and use these skills to ensure the staff team are all well trained, and motivated to work within the nursery. I look forward to building a strong team here at Evolution Childcare Shadsworth and will make sure that together we create a wonderful learning environment for the children.


Jessica Croasdale

Assistant Manager

I joined the Evolution team for the launch in May 2016. I have a level 3 Diploma in Specialist Support for Teaching and Learning with 6 years’ experience teaching Early Years, specialising outdoor provision. I am passionate about providing first class childcare and education to children under my supervision, ensuring that they are cared for in a happy, safe and stimulating environment.

I am Paediatric First Aid trained and also Emergency First Aid at Work trained. Whilst I have been working for the company I have had the opportunity to develop my training in Safeguarding Children and am currently working towards a qualification in management. These opportunities allow me to progress and extend my own knowledge further.

I am very excited to start my role as the Assistant Manager, I enjoy creating a stimulating learning environment for the children that I care for helping them to reach their full potential and supporting both the children, parents and staff.
