Tales Toolkit inspires interactions, unlocking stories in every child
We believe story is a super powerful learning gizmo
We created Tales Toolkit, a Toolkit for creating Tales. Story has been shown to improve all types of learning and increase engagement and memory capacity.
All of our resources are labelled with easily recognised symbols for Character, Setting, Problem, Solution giving the children a tool to independently weave magical tales.
Forming a family is the way forward
Our resources have huge potential so it’s important that we train your team properly to ensure the most impact is made.

Here's what others say:
“I have been able to assess children’s knowledge and develop numeracy, problem solving and creative skills through our storytelling.
I also feel that I have gained a great insight into their thought processes through the varied and amazing solutions that they devise.
I have been able to provide tailored solutions for them to develop their learning and thinking skills, which I wouldn’t have had without using Tales Toolkit.”
