In a little upstairs studio, in a buzzing Plimmerton daycare centre, you’ll find the humble headquarters of TeacherTalk. Founded with the desire of facilitating a conversation with teachers, educators and parents around NZ, this kiwi creative provides awesome educational (and FUN!) resources that children can actually relate to.
The small (but passionate!) TeacherTalk team is made is up of 3 humans & 5 dogs. Kate (owner of an Early Learning Centre), Stevie (daughter of Kate, and graphic design extraordinaire) and Xoe (pro-illustrator) together with their little wags, brainstorm, create, plan, and each do their part to bring every product to life. “We are a little mad, but there is method to our madness! We are enthusiastic, creative, and we have a lot of fun and laughs… most of our products are handcrafted...there’s a lot of hands on work making them.”
Spending a lot of time with children & teachers at Kate’s Early Childhood Centre, the girls are able to grasp first hand what these littlies are needing most. “If a child can’t learn the way we teach, maybe we should teach the way they learn.” Preach! Looking at what’s important to kids growing up in NZ, TeacherTalk’s range perfectly represents our beautiful, culturally diverse nation.
