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.

Qonsent and Encantos Team Up to Definitively Solve Data Privacy Issues for Children

Leaders in consumer-first data privacy and online education for children make headway where legislation like the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act has failed

NEW YORK—March 17, 2022—Qonsent, the first consent enablement and consumer trust platform, and Encantos, a global web3 platform empowering creators who help kids learn, today announced a collaboration to address data privacy issues affecting children in today’s digital world. The Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) was the first step, but 20 years later too many companies have found loopholes and workarounds, creating an environment that is unsafe for kids and unsatisfying for parents. Encantos and Qonsent have developed an actionable solution to protect children’s privacy by underpinning platforms and communities with verifiable, persistent first-person consent mechanisms.

The two companies were conceived and purpose-built to fill a need in their respective industries. Qonsent is the first of its kind consent enablement platform built to put consumers back in control of their data through trusted relationship building. Encantos was built to democratize and diversify education for children, creating a safe environment for creators, parents, and children to connect to teach valuable learning, literacy, and life skills children do not learn in school.

“Aside from COPPA there has been little focus put on the protection of children online. COPPA is just a legal action that many have found ways to circumvent,” said Steven Wolfe Pereira, CEO, Encantos. “Our mission has been to create a platform and community for creators, parents, and children to foster learning in a safe environment. By working with Qonsent, we’re ensuring our platform is fully compliant with data privacy laws and we’re also creating an environment of transparency between creators and parents regarding how and when a child’s data might be used.”

Encantos is a first-of-its-kind platform that leverages web3 development, AI, blockchain, and other emerging technology such as NFTs, all of which require a consistent, customizable framework that can ensure complete data transparency and privacy as the platform scales. The Qonsent solution will be embedded in the Encantos platform to allow for near real-time ID Validation and Smart Contract Consent modules before any data can be collected. Most importantly, Encontos will deploy a custom white-labeled Qonsent Wallet solution, which will offer an easy-to-navigate consumer interface that allows parents to easily manage how, when, and why a child’s data might be used. 

“Data privacy impacts us all but it’s so much more important when it comes to children as they’re often overlooked despite the fact that they are vulnerable online when it comes to impending legislation or addressing changes on how marketers collect and use personal data,” said Jesse Redniss, CEO and Co-founder, Qonsent. “Working with the dynamic team at Encantos and their community of creators, we’re able to ensure parents and children are safe while they learn, play games, watch videos, sing songs, and read books—whether they’re learning in school or studying at home. None of us should have to wait for big tech companies to make changes or bet on potential legislation to enforce data privacy measures so we decided to do it ourselves and for our kids.”

Qonsent products are easy to deploy, require little to no code, and quickly enable the creation of branded, frictionless, and most importantly easy to understand digital experiences where consumers can provide consent for the use of their data.

The services offered by the company encompass both B2B services and consumer-facing solutions, including Qonsent-in API embed creator, SmartQontract, real-time ID validation and match linking, a resolution manager, and a Qonsent consumer wallet. Qonsent’s platform can bridge the gaps in the current industry offerings for brands, advertisers, publishers, creators, enterprises, and consumers to solve the data privacy issue in a holistic manner.
