Our Mission

Storytelling is our superpower. Learning is our passion.

We’re storyteachers.

Today’s kids are exploring a world far more complex than the one we grew up in, and they’re facing challenges we never imagined.
What skills do they need to navigate this fundamentally changed world?

The ability to think creatively and critically, to adapt and solve problems, to understand and feel at home in communities far beyond their own, and to express their thoughts and feelings with clarity.

These are the new fundamentals, and they’re teachable skills. That’s where Encantos comes in.

We know kids learn best through stories. So we partner with a diverse group of storytellers to create culturally rich, curriculum-infused storyteaching experiences.

Storyteaching engages and inspires kids to think on their feet, to connect with others from backgrounds different than their own, and to be curious and creative.

With the Encantos storyteaching platform, kids learn the skills they need to flourish—and they learn to love learning along the way.

Our Products

The Encantos app brings the storyverse to life and uses technology to help customize the experience so that our worlds grow as your children do.

But just as learning shouldn’t stop in the classroom, storyteaching doesn’t stop with our app.

By fusing physical and digital experiences, we expand our storyworlds to meet kids where they are, with the kinds of tools they love. Animated series, books, songs, apps, games, puzzles, and other products encourage kids to continue learning through play, curiosity, and engagement.

Giving Back

As a Public Benefit Corporation (PBC), each of our brands is tied to a family-focused social benefit cause to give back to a community. People want to work for, buy from, and invest in brands they believe in. We believe being a PBC is the most powerful way to build credibility, trust, and value with and for kids and families.

ASU, Encantos partner to reimagine elementary education for kids

Author

Published

October 8, 2021

Global education leader ASU and edtech leader Encantos to codesign first-of-its-kind elementary content.

With a shared vision to inspire kids to learn 21st-century skills, Arizona State University and Encantos, the global story-teaching platform, on Aug. 9 announced at the ASU+GSV Summit a groundbreaking partnership to launch a first-of-its-kind elementary curriculum partnership that inspires students with next-generation skills through culturally relevant, exploratory digital learning and print material.

This partnership will embed Encantos’ award-winning blended-learning products into ASU Prep Digital, ASU’s K–12 digital learning platform that teaches learners and collaborates with schools around the globe. Because of this partnership, learners, teachers and parents will now have access to a robust library of audio, videos, games, activities and storycasts that enhance their understanding of the world and the Spanish language with embedded social-emotional benefits.

ASU and Encantos — two recognized leaders in education that pioneer innovations to impact learners and educators of all demographics, backgrounds and economic levels — come to this partnership with a shared vision and mission for a more inclusive educational system that democratizes and diversifies learning. The program is based upon national content standards along with a rich infusion of SEL (social-emotional learning) and DEI (diversity, equity and inclusion learning). The student experience is bilingual and delivered in an innovative platform that encourages community, play and learning. The development of a core curriculum based on 21st-century skills aims to unlock educational advantages for all children that will help them succeed in a changing world, where future jobs require different skills than have been needed in the past. This co-designed curriculum is the first of a wide-ranging set of innovative learning approaches that the two partners will seek to develop together over the coming years.

The collaboration will help validate educational efficacy and learning goals and will develop a sustainable educational model that lifts up all children, regardless of race, income or household dynamics. ASU Prep Digital’s K–5 offerings, enhanced by Encantos’ proprietary mapping of 21st-century skills, align to DEI and SEL standards to make it easy for new school partners to join in the future and empower learners at home as well as innovative school teachers looking for blended and hybrid assets mapped to standard that put students on individual paths to mastery.

By fall 2022, it is anticipated that schools nationwide will join ASU Prep Digital’s kindergarten and first grade cohorts and a growing network of school partnerships to leverage the Encantos tools for their learners. Each year a new grade level will be released along with a repository of assets that powerfully engage elementary-age learners.

“This partnership was developed to leverage the unique approach Encantos plays in teaching through the lens of story and play,” said ASU President Michael Crow. “We are very enthusiastic about how education can be reinvented by offering some of the principles that Encantos has pioneered into ASU Prep Digital’s growing global footprint.”

Encantos CEO Steven Wolfe Pereira added, “ASU is the undisputed leader in progressive education, modeling a stance on universal access with excellence, inclusivity, access and impact as the core. We share these values and are thrilled to partner to introduce 21st-century skills, story-teaching and learning through play to their schools, to ensure the 2 billion kids around the world all have an equal chance to reach their fullest potential.”
