All parents are provided with an overview of Shannon ChildCare’s learning and development planning and curriculum. Working with parents to help our children’s learning provides a unified approach to supporting their progress. Teaching our children good manners and feeling proud of themselves is wonderful to behold. This provides them with the confidence to excel. Each child is unique and develops at their own pace, our job is to help them achieve their potential.

We follow the government Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) guidelines and also incorporate our own unique ‘8 Attitudes’ towards learning. These principles encourage our children to value curiosity, independence and co-operative learning. Their happiness and well-being are paramount.

Each nursery is set up with age and stage appropriate resources and children are grouped accordingly within the planning. ‘Montessori Initiated Ideas’ are incorporated in the curriculum ensuring we provide our children with a breadth of knowledge.

We cover the areas of learning as follows: 

Personal, Social & Emotional Development

Communication, Phonics & Literacy 

Physical Development


Understanding The World

Creative Arts

Home Learning & Life Skills
