About Us

Family is always at the heart of Early Learners 

A Family Run Company


Early Learners was founded by Jean and Graham McCann in October 1985 and is very much a family group.  Since 2008 their son Hayden McCann acts as the director and owner of the companies and oversees the operations of the nurseries and businesses.  Hayden completed his masters degree at Edge Hill University in Management.  Each setting also benefits from having a qualified and experienced Manager.  Today the McCann family and Managers work as a team to ensure Early Learners provides quality childcare and the state-of-the-art environments for children, families and its employees.


Based on this firm foundation of expertise, knowledge and practical experience we set out our long-term goal to grow as a childcare provider.  We want to continue to improve and provide the very highest standards of care and education for children.  Early Learners is the one of the largest childcare providers both in Widnes, Runcorn, Middlewich and St.Helens.  We offer a wide range of places across our nurseries and out of school clubs throughout Cheshire and Merseyside.
