Reviews

9.7 Minibugs Nurseries Ltd (Wincobank) has a Review Score of 9.7 (9.738)

The Review Score of 9.7 (maximum of 10) for Minibugs Nurseries Ltd (Wincobank) is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.7 out of 5 from 18 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Minibugs Nurseries Ltd (Wincobank) in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 17 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 4.738 for Minibugs Nurseries Ltd (Wincobank) is calculated as follows: ( (164 Excellents x 5) + (44 Goods x 4) + (6 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 214 Ratings = 4.738

  • b) 5 Points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 12 months. If there are no Positive Reviews in the last 12 months, then 2.5 points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 2 years. A Positive Review is defined as any Review with 'Extremely Likely' or 'Likely' in answer to the question 'How likely are you to recommend this Day Nursery to friends and family?'

    The 5 points available are broken down as follows:

    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.

    3. If there are no Positive Reviews in the last 12 months, then 2.5 points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 2 years. The calculation is the same as above, except the points are divided by 2.

    The 5 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Minibugs Nurseries Ltd (Wincobank) is based on 17 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 14.8 positive Reviews (74 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 17 Reviews ÷ 14.8 Target Reached = 1

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

This nursery is the best in the area, I would recommend to anyone. My son loves it and has come on so much, his speech is perfect. He is growing into a lovely confident little boy, they have really calmed him down. He has lots of new friends and the staff are all brilliant; friendly and easy to talk to about any problems that may arise in your childcare needs. Potty training at the minute and it's going really well, I have full peace of mind while I'm at work that my child is in the best hands outside the family.

All staff here are extremely friendly and do their best to help children grow, learn and enjoy their time in nursery. They make sure children and babies are comfortable and happy. My son loves going to nursery and tells everyone stories of when he’s there so I know he loves it and enjoys it. They also keep parents involved and interact great with parents and other siblings making you feel at ease too when there.

My son has come on leaps and bounds with his speech since starting this nursery. He comes back so happy and full of joy about his day at Minibugs. He didn’t like his previous nursery but he feels comfortable around his teachers here who he adores they're all lovely and understanding.

My little boy has been attending the Minibugs in Wincobank since he was about 10 months old. Since then he has learnt many many new things. His social skills became amazing as well as his artwork which is improving week by week. The ladies there definitely take good care of them. He is never grumpy when it's time to go to the nursery in the morning which means he loves spending time there. Very clean, lovely garden area, various food, lots of toys and creative activities to keep them busy and match their interest. I especially like the fact that we can follow online by the hour what our little one is up to just now. Good relationship with the ladies working there and they really put their full heart into what they are doing. The nursery is constantly improving. The only bad thing I'd say is it would be nice to have a sleeping area for the babies in a separate room further from the noise, but I appreciate that with the space they have it's not necessarily possible. Highly recommended.

From the moment my daughter started here, she has loved it. She gets so excited to come inside when we arrive. The nursery is fresh and clean and there are a wide range of resources, the staff are friendly, and my daughter loves to go for hugs with them all. I would highly recommend, I am very happy with the setting.

My little girl loves going to nursery. She was a premature baby is now she getting past her milestones greatly, this is from us working closely with the nursery practitioners. They are always happy, pleasant and very informative.

I love the app so that when I am working away, I can check on my daughters day and be involved in what she doing or see what she has eaten. The manager has a great team and should be proud.

Minibugs Nursery Team.

Pros:

Competitively Priced.

Modern nursery with parent portal tracking day's progress.

All toys, fixtures and fittings are brand new, so everything is fresh, engaging and does not look tattered or tired.

A variety of activities.

Accepts child care vouchers via Computershare.

Good parking.

Cons:

The baby area on ground floor is hard flooring which is not kind to delicate baby knees and or feet when crawling. There are some rugs and cushions scattered however a fall on a hard floor is not good.

Nursery feels chilly/cold and has this minimalist feeling.

The nursery has no character.

Must provide pre-measured milk bottles.

Relationship lacking between Nursery and Parents. (Sometimes you get the feeling staff are running off a script/tick box exercise.)

Even with months of notice you still have to pay nursery fees for the time taken off.

No events.

This Nursery has a promising future and needs to mature which will come in time. We are happy so far and would not be looking anywhere else for the time being.

My child has been attending since the nursery opened. It's a very clean nursery and all the staff are excellent, I'm always getting feedback and ways we can both help my son settle better in the nursery environment. I would recommend this nursery to any of my other mommy friends as it's a relaxing and safe place for my son to attend.

I have been working with children for nearly 12 years now and no 2 days are the same. I have a foundation degree and BA Hons degree both in early years. After these studies I went on to qualify as an early years professional with Huddersfield University.

I have 6 years managerial experience working across a number of childcare settings. Working with children gives me the drive and passion to improve the lives of the families we work with.

I enjoy a challenge and love the variety that working with different families offers. As a new nursery at Wincobank offers a number of different challenges but it promises to be an exciting time, full of hustle and bustle.

I'm excited to meet all our new children and show them all the fun new learning spaces we have created for their enjoyment.

The Wincobank nursery team are excited to be providing Sheffield with a new day care concept that promises to build the generations of our future

I have worked with children and young people since leaving college, I furthered my education at university with a degree in education and disability studies. The best thing about my job is watching the children learn and grow throughout the time at nursery and seeing them off to school.
