Cute Institute™ was founded by a mom to help solve a problem. With three young children at home she quickly learned that kids need and want positive, mental stimulation and creative outlets in order to grow their imagination, confidence, discovery as well as their social-emotional development.
As a former lead hospital chaplain that often worked with children, the Cute Institute™ founder wanted to help instill in children everywhere that they’re loved. She believes that if a child knows whole-heartedly that they are of limitless value, then they will also grow as individuals that prize and love others.
As a result, everything that she teaches will fall into one of these three categories:
Cute Institute™ got their start on YouTube making kids, educational content that tackles social-emotional development like how to make a friend for kids, how to handle rejection on the playground, and self-control for kids.
Writing original kids songs, storytelling, and hand crafting shadow puppets in order to deeply reach, connect and impact a child’s heart and wonder is what Cute Institute™ is really known for.
This is us. Radically different, yet very much the same. (We’d love to know who you are, too!)
Said about our kids song, "Self-ConTROLLS™" - I am so playing this song for all my nieces and nephews! This needs to be everywhere! Love it! "If you can choose to do it, then you can choose not to." Even adults need to hear this!
Said about our handcrafted, wooden, shadow puppets - My daughter is speech delayed, and very shy in public. We gave her your wooden shadow puppets, and told her stories on her bedroom wall with them. Now, she's actually starting to tell the story to her brothers using your shadow puppets!
Said about our printables - I've been a principal and teacher for over 40 years, and I'm just so happy with the quality, vivid colors and illustrations of these printables! Now, I'll be ordering shadow puppets for my grandson's birthday!
