How does Night Zookeeper teach English skills?
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 English skills are transformed along the way, while they have fun learning alongside other children from all over the world!
My child hates/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 homeschool 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.
How will Night Zookeeper help me as a homeschool parent?
All the work your child produces is reviewed by our team of tutors, who provide constructive feedback and suggestions on how to improve their writing - so we do all the grading for you! This is a highly valued feature by homeschoolers, as it’s a great time saver and a relief from being "the bad guy". You’ll also have access to your own dashboard, complete with a detailed progress tracker, the ability to set assignments, and privacy controls. We'll also send you a free monthly resource for handwritten exercises.
How often should we use Night Zookeeper?
Children should try to use Night Zookeeper a minimum of 30 minutes a week to get the best out of the program. This will give them time to complete their weekly assignments and check feedback from their tutors. But there is SO much to do on Night Zookeeper so we recommend a few hours a week to really take advantage of all the material on offer, and to help your child improve their reading and writing faster.
What support is available for homeschool families?
Our friendly customer support team is always happy to help and answer any questions you may have about our program. You can also find helpful homeschool English resources, advice and articles on our blog page. You can also access community groups through our social media pages.
What will my child write about?
Your child will be encouraged to improve their writing skills by exploring various different themes, styles, and genres. All the content available on our program is carefully created and regularly reviewed by our education team to ensure that Night Zookeeper remains a safe online space for all homeschool families. Different genres of writing are gradually introduced according to age level, including creative writing, newspaper articles, persuasive writing, reports, essay writing, and poetry.
Can I manage the features on my child's account?
Yes! As the owner of the account, you’ll have access to a separate dashboard where you’ll be able to manage your child’s program features. This includes enabling/disabling specific areas of the program (such as our community feature, or the educational games section), managing privacy settings, and adjusting your child’s age level.
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.
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.
Can I check my child's progress?
