We cannot thank parents enough for their wonderful emails, messages and cards. If you are interested in your child attending Shannon ChildCare we can put you in touch with existing parents, so you can get a perspective of our care services.

Below are just a few of the comments received:

Dear Alyson,

Annabel starts a new chapter in her life today as she begins nursery school and me and Sarah wanted to drop you a quick note to say thank you for the fantastic start that your nursery has given her and Harry too. Both kids developed hugely whilst they were with you and your team. When we were looking for a nursery for Harry, Sarah said that the moment she stepped inside no 108 she felt that this was a place of quality and knew immediately that we wanted Harry to come to you and later Annabel. She was proved right. Both Harry and Annabel loved coming to nursery and the carers that looked after them.

Thanks must also go to Ilhan for always doing his best to accommodate our last minute requests to send Annabel when we were stuck for childcare. You, Ilhan and your team of carers have been a big part of Harry and Annabel’s lives and their happy memories of nursery will live them forever.

We have gifts to drop round to the carers we just haven’t had a spare moment to bring them round but we will do soon.

Thanks again,

With best wishes

Richard and Sarah Cotler

Hi Alyson 

Thank you to the wonderful staff at Shannon’s.  Our little one moved nurseries to join Shannon’s and the team has been amazing during the transition.  There’s been excellent communication with the parents for all updates and also for behaviour tips in helping deal with any issues or problems.  There has been a noticeable difference in how much he’s learnt and developed too. They’re really loving and warm towards all the kids in their care and we couldn’t be happier.

Hi Alyson 

We love how happy our son is when he goes and leaves day care. The staff are very communicative and helpful. 

Thank you for looking after my bubba so well.


The personal approach to everything that you guys do is amazing. It’s literally like dropping your kids off to a friend’s house. Such warmth, knowledge and the feeling of walking away feeling totally confident your kids are in a safe, educational and fun environment is extremely reassuring. 

It can’t be an easy job and hats off to the service all of the carers/teacher give. JP

A wonderful nursery – I couldn’t ask for more caring and attentive staff to look after my children. My children have been so happy there and have learnt so much. Nicole Seager

Shannon ChildCare is a lovely, nurturing nursery that inspires confidence in parents and children alike. A very homely nursery, which encourages play and learning, whilst allowing kids to be kids at the same time. We look forward to growing together with the nursery over the next few years. J Sherf

Hi Team Shannon

We have 2 children going through Shannon Childcare and another to start soon. Could not wish for a safer and happier environment for them and would wholeheartedly recommend the setting to any new parent. The Team is lovely, professional and collaborative. Good staff retention ensures continuity of care. They expertly settle children in and stimulate them with innovative, age-appropriate, imaginative and fun activities we would struggle to replicate at home. Lending books out through their ‘library’ system is sweet and enjoyed by the children, and the information sessions they host for parents on an ad hoc basis are very helpful. We would happily eat the nutritious varied food they serve ourselves – clearly a lot of thought goes into it and the children love it. Alyson is always willing to give specific advice on any topic and her expertise is very much appreciated. 

All our best,

Esther and Graeme Rubinstein

We would like to say that Raphael settled in really well into the nursery just over two months ago and ever since he always mentions his carers at home which tells us he’s bonded well to staff. His language and behaviour has come on loads since starting which is no doubt related to his learning experiences at the nursery. Thank you to all your wonderful staff – we are very happy that we chose your setting.

Our son joined when he was 9 months old. We’ve watched him grow into a wonderfully happy 4 year old who is now ready to go to school and enjoy his next adventure. He’s inquisitive, talkative, passionate about learning, caring, and most important of all, he’s been so loved when he’s been away from home. His curiosity for the world has been encouraged throughout his time there and he has developed great social skills through interacting with all the other children and the carers. He has learnt such important skills like sharing, turn taking, kindness and respect for himself, others and the environment.

Though our son is now starting school, our daughter is still at Shannon Childcare and she too is so happy. Dropping her off every morning and watching her run inside squealing with joy is one of the best experiences you can have before going to work. We couldn’t have chosen a more loving and professional place for them!
