SHANARRI Pocket Cards

Whilst these pocket cards have been designed principally for childcare providers registered by the Scottish Care Inspectorate, they provide an excellent guide to monitoring the wellbeing of children everywhere.

Childcare providers registered in Scotland are expected to follow the GIRFEC (Getting It Right For Every Child) approach to monitor, assess and support the wellbeing of every child in their care. Using the SHANARRI Wellbeing Indicators we can look closely at key areas to ensure we are ‘getting it right for every child’.

Are you looking for a quick and easy way to refer to the SHANARRI Wellbeing Indictors during your busy day caring for children?


These SHANARRI Pocket Cards can provide a quick and handy reference tool to each of the Wellbeing Indictors including individual outcomes that you should be looking for within each area of wellbeing. Excellent for quickly linking observations and assessments!

Assessment Guidance cards further detail the things you should be considering under each of the wellbeing indicators plus situations that may increase risk or require additional support.

This pack  includes ALL of the following:
  • Cover Cards & Wellbeing Indicator descriptions. MindingKids recommends that you print theses double sided to have the appropriate descriptions on the reverse of each cover card. 
  • Wellbeing Indicator cards that break down each of the 8 wellbeing indicators into individual outcomes. This will help you to assess whether expectations are being met for every child and highlight any problem areas.
  • Assessment Guidance Cards will break down even further the things you should be looking for within each age group, what you can do to support children, and highlight circumstances where there could be an increased risk to a child’s wellbeing or where further support may be required.
