Cool Story: Hello, we're Susie and Jonathan Seaton, founders of Twinkl. Twinkl began life in 2010 as an idea, when we both realised that teachers, like Susie, were having trouble finding suitable resources - those which were guaranteed to be high quality and really helped children learn.
Back then, with no credible source for resources, teachers everywhere were using precious time and energy creating their own. They were working in isolation too, constantly reinventing the wheel by making individual resources for identical subjects and lessons.
We both realised that by making these resources just once and making them available we could save teachers so much time, and allow the teaching community to spend energy on the one thing that really mattered - the children in their care.
