About Us


Changes to our operational procedures have been put in place to protect our staff and children and we want to reassure those parents still able to access our services that we will continue to do all we can to keep the settings open where it is safe for you and our children to do so and where the numbers of children that require our care are viable.

If you are a key worker and require childcare at this time, please contact our nursery management teams to discuss what you need and how we can help you.

Minibugs Nurseries is a happy and caring place for 'mini people' to grow and thrive.

Minibugs Nurseries (Wincobank) provides a stimulating and nurturing early years childcare service to children aged from three months to five years-old.

A new nursery located next to Wincobank Medical Centre, the nursery provides modern facilities and a stimulating and nurturing early years environment for children.

Putting your mini person first - the children are at the heart of the nursery and activities are created based on their interests, thoughts and ideas.

Places to learn, play and grow. The rooms are full of natural play resources to help your child's imagination thrive, giving them endless learning opportunities in a calming and happy setting

Children can enjoy outdoor learning and play every day in the outdoor play and activity areas. It encourages free-flow play and the children enjoy being creative and adventurous both indoors and outdoors.

Parent partnerships are so important to staff. The nursery team will keep parents updated on daily activities and observations and work with parents to monitor and evidence a child’s individual learning journey.

The nursery only employs staff who understand their childcare philosophy, and who love working with children and supporting them in developing their individual personalities and interests.

Thank you so much for your lovely review of Minibugs Nurseries, its lovely to hear how much your daughter loves coming to the nursery. Your review means a lot, thank you again, The Minibugs Team.

Our little girl Jenni, is now back for a second time after an amazing first year. We love Minibugs, the staff are so lovely and kind and nothing is too much trouble. The facilities are brilliant and my little girl loves going and always has a great time. The meals provided are very nice and always eaten, they have lots of activities to keep busy with. They are also very supportive of her development and any needs she may need. The location is brilliant and next to the train station for commuting. The nursery is always clean and well looked after. Communication is brilliant, I can ring up as many times as I want and there is an app for real time updates.
