About Us

Mini VIP’s Nursery & Daycare Ltd operates a children’s day nursery in Winchcombe, Gloucestershire.
Our nursery is designed to provide a secure, comfortable and stimulating environment for children from birth to 5 years of age. We also operate an after-school care which provides a relaxing and caring atmosphere for children aged between 4 and 11 years. Mini VIP’s Nursery is a family owned business, run by mother and daughter, who previously both owned a childminding business in their own homes. We opened our nursery in 2016 and since then the company has grown steadily, building on our ethos of a ‘home-from-home’ for your child. A team of qualified and experienced staff in each room offers warmth, care and opportunities to learn, so that your child can develop and grow in an ideal environment.
We offer full day care or smaller sessions, as well as out of school care and are registered to receive Government Funding to help you to offset the cost of nursery sessions for 3 and 4 year olds. We also help you to explore all the possible avenues for help with childcare costs, including advice on tax credits and employer childcare voucher schemes. We are also taking part in the offer of free sessions for eligible 2 year olds.
All children have a key carer, who is responsible for their needs during their time at nursery. This will include making observations on your child’s development as well as giving meals and feeds and carrying out nappy changes or potty training, as appropriate. You will be included in your child’s day at nursery through daily diaries and record sheets (for younger children) and notice boards and conversations (for older children). Our nursery policy requires all staff to be inclusive of all families, regardless of age, gender, ethnicity, sexuality and disability. We recognise the diversity of families in the 21st century and welcome all families into our settings, including LGBT families.

Registration and staffing

Our nursery is registered with Ofsted, which carries out regular formal inspections. Our most recent inspection reports are available for you to view on the Ofsted website. The inspections ensure that we meet the standards required by Ofsted, including those specified by Environmental Health, the Fire Department and the Health and Safety Executive.

Our team of staff  is carefully chosen to reflect a balance of formal qualifications and experience, coupled with a genuine enjoyment of caring for children. The manager, deputy manager and all room leaders are qualified to at least NVQ Level 3 standard, as are at least half of our nursery assistants. Many of our Nursery Assistants are also working towards these qualifications. We are very committed to staff training and development, which we are very proud of.
