"Night zookeeper is wonderful! It's helped my children become more engaged in writing, improved their spelling and vocabulary, and unleash their creative side. As a homeschooler it is such a great supplement to our English curriculum! My boys both enjoy playing and creating their own stories for their creations!"

Frequently Asked Questions
How does Night Zookeeper improve reading and writing, and make it fun?
By providing thousands of fun and engaging lessons, challenges, and games, Night Zookeeper helps children to learn new words, use them in sentences, and then create amazing pieces of writing that are shared with children from around the world. They receive feedback from our team of tutors as well as other children that highlight where they can improve. In-game awards and competitions keep them motivated to continue to learn and progress.
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.
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 and access community groups through our social media pages.
What will my child write about?
They’ll write about everything, from stories about magical animals to instructions on how to make the perfect hot chocolate. All genres of writing are gradually introduced including newspaper articles, persuasive writing, reports, and poetry.
But my child doesn’t like writing! Can this help?
In short, yes indeed! Night Zookeeper has been proven over and over to inspire even the most reluctant writers to develop a love of writing. Trust us, your child will love it too!
How does my child get feedback on their work?
Children receive feedback from our qualified tutors on every piece of written work they submit for review. Feedback includes encouraging comments to boost motivation and detailed suggestions on how to improve their work. Our tutors aim to provide feedback within 48 hours of work being submitted.
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 ages are best for this program?
Night Zookeeper is best for ages 6 to 12. 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 parent dashboard.
Do you have a family subscription?
Yes, you can add more than one child to your account. Simply press 'Start Free Trial' on a plan, and then add the number of children you would like (up to 3) in the checkout. The total will be displayed on the screen and there are discounts applied for every child added.
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 homeschoolers?
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 has a comprehensive 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 English curriculum, while others reach for it as a way to build on reading & writing skills taught at school!
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.
