We are a family-run business with creative education at the heart of everything we do. We’re a family of educators, creatives, engineers, business leaders, scientists and sociologists. We are based in the Cotswolds, England and adore our surrounding countryside! The name ( The Phive ) stands for the five of us as a family and is spelt with a ‘Ph’ to reflect our passion for everything phonics-related! 

Zoe is our founder and uses her extensive experience as a primary school teacher and literacy specialist to create the phonics, reading and writing products and services we have on offer. Her passion lies in creating meaningful and memorable learning experiences for children to ignite enthusiasm and build confidence. Zoe runs The Phive alongside two talented freelancers, Liv and Kate.

Liv is a professional Graphic Designer and Zoe’s eldest daughter! She has a BSc in Product Design and a Master’s Degree in Digital Advertising. Liv works her magic with everything graphics and strives hard to make Zoe’s ideas come to life. Kate is a freelance illustrator and is very much part of our team. Kate studied for her illustration degree in Bristol where she now lives and works. Kate has the perfect style for us and makes everything that little bit more magical!

Our award-winning creative learning products are loved all over the world by families supporting learning alongside school or home-schooling and of course, teachers love them too. Having something screen-free that is both inspiring and easy to use is a winner for families who want to invest in their child’s positive outcomes as learners.

As part of our sustainability promise, we create everything to have multi-purpose and longevity so our learning tools can be used for multiple children within families for multiple purposes. The Phive products do not get shoved in a drawer when finished, they go on to inspire in many ways. We also prioritise quality so our products can serve generations. We only use UK suppliers and manufactures who share our values on sustainability and all products are made using FSC traceable woods and papers, biodegradable or recyclable laminates and plant-based inks. Our partners use ethical waste practise including our lovely box maker in Cornwall who donates offcuts to their local primary school for crafting!

As part of our commitment to reducing our carbon footprint, we donate a tree for every order through our website which is planted locally in Oxfordshire to support local eco-systems.

Our mission is to design and create learning tools that inspire children through creative approaches and personalised learning. Sparking a child’s imagination and igniting passion, curiosity and wonder is the key to a lifelong love of learning. Our mission is to continually think of ways to play our part in building a generation of creative thinkers. 

“In a world that increasingly values innovation and adaptability, the ability to think creatively is more important than ever.”
