Nurturing Hungry Little Minds

Fonetti was born from an aim to encourage a love a reading in children. So, we’re proud to be accredited by The Department for Education’s Hungry Little Minds Campaign as an approved platform for children to practise their reading.

What is Hungry Little Minds?

The Hungry Little Minds campaign is a three-year government initiative developed to help parents access activities that support child development.

Supported by The Royal College of Speech and Language Therapists (RSSLT), Hungry Little Minds recognises apps that celebrate the importance of language and communication.

Fonetti champions boosting children’s literacy. But by reading aloud, we also increase confidence levels and pronunciation when speaking – nurturing vital life skills.

If you have any concerns that screen time affects a child’s social skills – try these approved apps, like ours, and be prepared to be pleasantly surprised.
