Our mission is to challenge some of society’s biggest problems by creating new and exciting ways for children to learn, using games, interactive media and video.



The Usborne Foundation is a charity founded by children’s publisher, Peter Usborne MBE.
Harnessing research, design and technology, we create playful media addressing issues from literacy to health.
We believe that every child should be given the opportunity to learn and develop, helping them to reach their full potential in early years and beyond.


Early Literacy

Our flagship game, Teach Your Monster to Read, has helped millions of children learn to read, becoming one of the most extensive early literacy tools available.

Healthy eating

We're creating a product that gets young children excited about healthy eating, with the aim of helping address the growing issue of childhood obesity
in the UK.
