Kindergo is prouder than punch to partner with the Pyjama Foundation, providing free and unlimited use of our app for their Love of Learning program.
This program sees volunteers known as Pyjama Angels, matched with over 1,300 children in foster care, to spend time focusing on learning based activities – like reading aloud, educational games, and homework help.

Studies of “Read to Pet” programs conclude that the benefits to early readers are many! The silent companionship of an animal as a reading buddy allows kids to work at their own pace through reading challenges without the fear of being judged – helping them to overcome anxieties and motivation roadblocks.
We recognise a good thing when we see it!
So, we partnered with RSPCA Queensland to offer a unique reading experience through our very own “Read to Shelter Pets Program”. The program gave early primary school children the opportunity to become junior RSPCA volunteers, by reading to shelter dogs, cats, puppies & kittens (cute!) at the RSPCA’s Wacol Shelter.
