Young Minds Pen Pal Program

Pen Pal Class Finder for Early Childhood

Here at Your Teacher’s Pet Creature, we do our absolute best to listen to our customers, and the wider ECE community as a whole.

The one thing we hear across the board is how difficult in can be to get a pen pal program up and running. From finding an educator to participate, through to building the resources required. Well we’re glad to announce that we’ve built a solution.

We’ve created the Young Minds Pen Pal Program to automatically match you with a pen pal either in your home country or across the globe and a resource pack to get you started with teaching the basics of letter writing, and your first five letter activities.


Find a pen pal

 

Here's how it works:

  • Complete the online form we've built here and let us know who you are and who you'd like to be matched with. 

  • Our pen pal matching system will keep an eye out for a match and when it finds one it will email the both of you with the correct contact details.  
     
  • Not only will we put you in contact, but we will also send you our 26-page pen pal resource pack to help get you started with the five different letter writing activities for FREE. 

There's not really anything else like it out there aimed at ECE, so we hope you love it!

We'd love to hear your feedback (both good and bad) so we can keep making this program better. Head over to our Inspiring Young Minds in ECE Community to give any feedback or get some inspiration from other educators.
