Frequently Asked Questions

Frequently Asked Questions
How does Night Zookeeper improve writing?
Night Zookeeper’s award-winning educational content will help you teach your child new words, how to use them in sentences, then use those sentences to write stories. All of their writing skills are transformed along the way, while they have fun learning alongside other children from all over the world!
How does Night Zookeeper make writing fun?
Night Zookeeper uses a gamified approach to teach English skills in a fun, engaging, and highly motivating way. Children can improve their writing through playing games, winning challenges and battles, completing interactive lessons, and much more!
What will my child write about?
They’ll write about everything, from short stories about magical animals to instructions on how to make the perfect hot chocolate. Different genres of writing are gradually introduced according to age/ability level, including creative writing, newspaper articles, persuasive writing, reports, essay writing, and poetry.
My child heater/really struggles with writing. Can this really help?
In short, yes! Night Zookeeper has been proven over and over to inspire even the most reluctant writers to develop a love of writing. Thousands of families testify to its ability to transform children's attitude towards 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 writing program is a complete English reading & writing 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 writing curriculum, while others reach for it as a way to build on writing skills taught at school!
How often should we use Night Zookeeper?
As Night Zookeeper covers the English full language arts curriculum, we recommend consistent use for best results or improvement. Our program is very flexible and can be easily integrated with your homeschool routine, 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 (US grade levels 1 to 6, UK 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 can always adjust this in your dashboard.
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.
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.
