Night Zookeeper partners with children’s home and refugee NPO

We are pleased to report a partnership with the Japanese NPO, YouMeWE.

Thanks to this fantastic organisation, Night Zookeeper is now being used by children’s homes in Japan, charity schools in the Philippines, and by children from Syria, in refugees camps.

YouMeWe is an NPO based in Japan and focused primarily on the plight of over 30,000 children living in orphanages and children’s homes. Night Zookeeper has provided YouMeWe with free access to NightZookeeper.com for the children that they work with in their homes across the country. We have also trained volunteers on the use of the website. We did this because we are keen to ensure that the children don’t experience a ‘digital divide’ and fall behind others because of a lack of access to digital educational resources like Night Zookeeper.

The future will be shaped by technology and therefore access to the Internet, is vital for all children. Having the opportunity to connect, learn and play with technical tools will ensure they are prepared for their future. It will open up the job market and enrich them as human beings.

Night Zookeeper’s Lesson Hive, shares lessons created by teachers from around the world from the United States to New Zealand. The lessons created by these trained teachers can then be used by volunteers working with children in need across the world.

I want to personally thank every teacher that has created a lesson for Lesson Hive. They are being put to exceptional use!

Thanks again to everyone who supports, uses and subscribes to Night Zookeeper for their class, school or home. You are helping the world become a more creative place and spreading the light of learning into some of the most disadvantaged children in the word.

Our New Look Animal Dens: All you need to know…

As you may have seen, we recently launched a new look for the Animal Dens (where each animal lives) in Night Zookeeper. This aims to make it simpler for your child to use and to give them more choice in the activities they do. However, we know that with any change, it can take a little getting used to so we’ve put this guide together to help anyone who is wondering how to use it. Don’t worry, all the same features are still there!

Earth Day Writing Prompts

Earth Day Writing Prompts

The Night Zoo is a very magical world indeed, but we want children to recognise the magic of the world they already live in. These Earth Day prompts were designed to try and do just that, by getting kids to engage with their imaginations and write creatively about nature, the Earth and the environment. Hopefully it will encourage them to think a little deeper about what the word “Earth” means to them, whilst developing the key skills they need to be a star writer.
