"My son is not really into reading and I was worried he was lagging behind. I tried Night Zookeeper but not really with high hopes so I was pleasantly surprised that he loved it and even spends more time on it than his usual attention span!"

Frequently Asked Questions

Frequently Asked Questions
How does Night Zookeeper improve reading skills?
By providing thousands of fun, engaging, and interactive reading activities, Night Zookeeper helps children to learn new words, improves phonemic awareness, and develops reading comprehension. Our curriculum covers all the reading skills primary school aged students need to succeed. They receive feedback from our team of tutors as well as other children to highlight where they can improve. In-program awards and competitions keep them motivated to continue to learn and progress.
How does Night Zookeeper make reading fun?
Night Zookeeper uses a gamified approach to teach reading skills in a fun, engaging, and highly motivating way. Children improve their skills through playing games, winning challenges and battles, completing interactive lessons, and much more!
My child is a struggling reader. Can this really help?
In short, yes! Night Zookeeper has been proven over and over to inspire even the most reluctant learners to develop a love of reading & writing. Trust us, your child will love it too! When you sign up, you’ll be given a free 7-day trial to make sure Night Zookeeper is the right fit for your family.
Is Night Zookeeper for homeschoolers, or can it be used as a supplemental resource?
Whether you’re a homeschool parent, or a parent looking for additional ways to supplement your child’s learning, we’ve got you covered! While our program is a complete English curriculum, it can also be used to level up the skills your child has acquired at school. Some families use Night Zookeeper as their homeschool curriculum, while others reach for it as a way to build on skills taught at school!
How often should we use Night Zookeeper?
As Night Zookeeper covers the entire primary English curriculum, we recommend consistent use for best results or improvement. Our program is very flexible and can be easily integrated with your homeschool routine, or used as a supplemental resource, but we suggest at least 30 minutes per day to ensure continuous progress.
What ages are best for this program?
Night Zookeeper is best for ages 6 to 12 (years 1 to 6). When you join you’ll be able to select the age of your child, and this will change the type of lessons, challenges, games, and level of vocabulary that they will encounter. You’ll have access to all different levels through your dashboard, should you need to adjust the program to your child’s current learning ability.
Can I check my child's progress?
You certainly can. When you join Night Zookeeper you will be given access to a parent dashboard where you can easily monitor your child’s writing, achievements, and the feedback they are receiving from their tutor. This is a great tool for parents, homeschoolers, and even teachers!
Can I use this on a tablet?
Yes, Night Zookeeper works across tablets, PC’s and laptops. We recommend using either on Safari, or Google Chrome browsers for best performance.
Is Night Zookeeper suitable for children with special educational needs?
Absolutely! Night Zookeeper has been proven to work well for children with dyslexia, dyspraxia, ADHD, amongst many other special educational needs (SEN). The flexibility of the program enables every child to learn at their own pace and according to their own needs, and the gamified experience breaks down barriers that many children face with traditional learning experiences.
Do you have a family subscription?
Yes, you can add more than one child to your account. Simply press, 'Start Trial', and then add the number of children you would like (up to 3). The price will be displayed on the screen. Each learner will have their own Night Zookeeper profile, so you can track different levels and individual progress through your dashboard.
