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.

Who’s up for a Kidscreen Award?

Author

Kidscreen

Published

October 8, 2021

Netflix is the top nominee for the first time, followed by Sesame Workshop and PBS KIDS. Check out who else made the list.

With 14 shortlisted entries, Netflix is the top nominee for the 2021 Kidscreen Awards, followed by Sesame Workshop with 11 and PBS KIDS with nine. This is a big switch-up from last year, when Disney led the nominee pack with nine nods, followed by DreamWorks and Nickelodeon with six each.

Among its many nominations, Netflix has two in the new best inclusivity category. Bookmarks: Celebrating Black Voices is nominated in the preschool stream, and Family Reunion—an original sitcom from creator Meg DeLoatch—is shortlised in the kids stream.

Disney also fared well this year, picking up eight nominations for its work, including two Pixar projects on Disney+. WarnerMedia’s new streaming platform HBO Max, meanwhile, scored its first-ever KSA nominations—one for Cartoon Network Studios’ Adventure Time: Distant Lands in the best teens/tweens one-off, special or TV movie category, and another for Sesame Workshop’s The Not-Too-Late Show with Elmo in the best new preschool series category.

Winners will be announced at a special online gala awards ceremony to be held during Kidscreen Summit Virtual on Tuesday, February 9, 2021.

Amongst the nominees:
Best Learning App—Branded
Canticos Bilingual Preschool (Encantos Media Studios)
LEGO DUPLO World (The LEGO Group, StoryToys, Touch Press)
Sesame Street Alphabet Kitchen (Sesame Workshop)
