Meet Our Team


Sue Jones

Sue Jones

Managing Director

Teamwork makes the dream work and in a small family run business its essential that our Team share the same goals, visions and work ethics to enable us to reach our dream together, after all in our working lives we will:

  • Spend 136 days getting ready - actually I may take a little longer!
  • Spend 3,276 hours applying make-up, having a shower and getting dressed. Unless you are Anne who skips this and uses the hours gained for domino competitions and dog rehoming!
  • Spend a whopping 99,117hrs at work - That's the equivalent of 11 and a half years of solid slog!!
  • Spend 115 days laughing
  • Spend 20wks on hold - the bane of Jacqui's life!
  • Spend 4yrs on the phone at work - and I have the bills to prove it!
  • Spend 366 days off sick - apart from Kerry who refuses point blank to EVER admit defeat to bugs!
  • Spend 5months complaining - Bernie perhaps we should double this???
  • Spend 38,003 hours eating - less for Adam on his personal crusade of the the 5:2 diet
  • Spend 5yrs on the net - Sue more and Kerry aka Super savvy shopper LOTS longer!

Startling stats! Well in Evolution Childcare we really have developed a strong solid team of misfits - sorry talented individuals whose credentials are second to none. Our team work incredibly hard to go that extra mile to support our parents, nurture our team and guide our staff to be the very best they can be! I am incredibly proud to be an integral part of this wonderful team, where work doesn't feel like work and each day the challenges that lie ahead are tackled together, wholeheartedly supporting one another.

Quite simply when you love the job you do and so do the likeminded people around you, you never feel like it's a 'job' it's a journey we are all on together!

It gives me great pleasure to introduce my team to you (no airbrushing was allowed!)

Kind Regards

Sue xxxxx

Kerry Eccles

Operations Director

I have worked for Evolution Childcare for over 10 years starting off as an Assistant Manager progressing my career to where I am today. I have an abundance of qualifications and training certificates that all provide me with the skill set and knowledge to carry out my role well. 

My job involves me writing and developing our policies, procedures and operational documents to ensure that we continue to excel in the childcare sector. I also am responsible for writing and overviewing the training and staff development of our team ensuring that we provide quality childcare, care, education and learning environments to each and every child who attends our settings.

Finance Manager

I have worked for Evolution Childcare for 10 months and can honestly say the time has flown by but as the saying goes “time flies when you’re having fun”.

I have worked in the accounts/finance industry for over 10 years so have brought lots of experience and knowledge which enables me to do my job well.

My job role: I am responsible for ensuring that all 4 nurseries accounts are reconciled and maintained, cash flows, budgets, management accounts, end of year accounts, payroll, supplier payment runs, and dealing with supplier and customer queries.

Other duties include liaising with our Franchisees, raising invoices and anything else that Sue delegates my way.


Steve Evans

Steve Evans

Maintenance Manager

I have been employed by Evolution Childcare for eleven very happy years and I am known to the staff and children as ‘Billy Steve’. My duties as Maintenance Manager include the general up keep of the nurseries and the grounds undertaking a variety of tasks and jobs as and when they arise. I make sure that any works that are being carried out in and around the nurseries are done under strict guidance and in a safe and professional manner. 

There is no job too big or too small that I am happy to assist with. One of my favourite duties in my role is being the mini-bus driver for the children when they go on their many trips out into the community, I thoroughly enjoy this.
