“Our EYFS team had the most amazing and enjoyable experience with ZooLab. Rob was extremely engaging with the children, and he was fantastic with our children who had SEND needs.”

Why learn through storytelling?

Using storytelling as a mechanism in teaching involves structuring learning around a narrative. It helps children (and adults) make sense of issues and topics by engaging them in a story, making facts easier to remember and participants more open to learning.

The benefits of learning through storytelling does not stop at increasing knowledge of the subject area - storytelling encourages creativity, expands vocabulary, increases attention span and helps to reinforce morals.
