About Us

now>press>play is an award-winning social enterprise, founded in 2012 by three friends who love learning but hate sitting down. They soon discovered they weren’t alone.
They decided to create an educational resource that uses sound, story and movement to engage all children, however they learn.

Children and teachers in a school hall hold their arms out as they imagine themselves flying while using Now Press Play.
We work with
children in over
schools to help every child fulfil their potential


Our vision is an education system that allows every child to fulfil their potential.


Our mission is to improve access to learning for all children by providing schools with affordable educational resources that bring the curriculum to life through sound, story and movement.


  • To improve children’s understanding of the curriculum
  • To ignite children’s imaginations
  • To support teachers in bringing the curriculum to life
  • To provide schools with an affordable resource that makes learning exciting, engaging and relevant


At now>press>play, we value experience, imagination, inclusivity and storytelling. We learn best when a subject matters to us, when we care about the people and places involved and when we are faced with real-life situations and problems. We learn best through experience. Imagination is at the heart of everything we do. We put all our imagination into making our experiences and they only come to life in the minds of the children who hear them.
