The British Council, world experts in teaching children English, and Aardman, the Academy Award® winning animation studio have combined their experience, expertise and passion to create Learning Time with Shaun & Timmy, an innovative English language learning experience for children aged 4-5.

About Learning Time with Shaun & Timmy

English language learning your child will always remember. 

Learning Time with Shaun & Timmy is a multi-award-winning range of high quality products that includes courses for 4-5 year old children; a collection of learning apps and a free online course for parents, teachers and early years practitioners.

Through our 75 years of teaching English to children we have recognised that children learn best when they are playing and engaged with stories. All of our products and our methodology are rooted in this philosophy.

Learning Time with Shaun & Timmy brings together the UK’s world-leading Early Years Foundation Stage methodology and the film and TV characters Shaun the Sheep and Timmy to create a dynamic way for young children to learn English successfully. 

The whole learning experience is structured around purposeful play in a themed, stimulating and safe environment for 4 to 5 year-olds.

At this age young minds learn language and pronunciation naturally and learning English will set them up well for school and life.

How we teach

We focus on your child's holistic development.

We know that your child’s early years are a critical period of their development. In the classroom, we focus on your child's holistic development through a combination of activities using unique videos, stories, songs, music, movement, arts and craft to help your child learn English. Through this approach they will also improve their:

  • communication skills
  • imagination and creativity
  • self-expression
  • decision-making skills
  • social skills.

By using the stories of Shaun and Timmy our teachers make language accessible because storytelling serves as a natural technique that aids memory. We create a learning experience that is dynamic, fun and enjoyable by structuring play in an interactive way to stimulate your child’s natural curiosity.

Our teachers

As an organisation we have been helping children learn English for over 75 years and we always ensure that we employ the latest learning strategies. All of our teachers are highly qualified and experienced in teaching English to young learners.

They plan their lessons according to your child’s needs, helping them to progress and develop a positive attitude towards English language learning. Our teachers also provide you with regular feedback on your child’s progression and offer tips on how you can continue your child’s English learning at home.
