Welcome to Cape Ability

A place where young children can learn to shift their negative thoughts towards positive ones instead. At Cape Ability, children can learn how to grow and flourish in all aspects of their life!

As parents we long to support our little ones in any way we can. That is why it can be so heartbreaking when they suffer from lack of self-belief or see themselves as incapable of doing things, such as tying their shoelaces, completing their school work or riding their bike. As parents and/or educators we can see that this is just their perception – we can see what they are really capable of. If only they could see it….

Our Stories

That is where the Cape Ability Approach comes in. Our stories really speak to little minds. Our motivational characters teach children to develop a healthy inner voice. They each have a guiding principle which is demonstrated by a key character throughout the story. So for instance in the story, ‘Believe in Yourself Bobby Bee,’ Bobby learns to shift his attitude from ‘I can’t do it,’ to ‘I can’t do it YET but I beelieve I will!’ With beautiful illustrations which capture a child’s interest from the outset, our books can transform a child’s belief about themselves entirely.

What Our Users Say...

I love Bobby Bee. He makes me believe I can just do it! When I was at the park I was brave like Tommy turtle and I had a go - and I did it!!!

Arthur - Aged 5

I use the stories daily with my daughters. If they're struggling with something then saying "try, try, try to catch that fly" rarely fails to get them back on track!"

Steve - parent of two girls (aged 4 and 6)

The focus on positive behaviour captivates the children, as they aspire to emulate the Learning Characters attitudes and behaviours in their learning and decision making. The versatility of this approach makes it a highly effective classroom management tool.

Our Mantras

As a child learns the helpful mantra above, they begin to hold the same hopeful attitude and develop their self belief! Each of our other stories have a different mantra which helps your child to develop and practise healthy attitudes and principles – such as resilience, courage and co-operation.

Nurture Little Minds

Often in life, we leave these things until adulthood. Let’s face it, things like resilience can take a lifetime to develop!  Many of us read self-help books and watch videos because as adults, we are looking to become happier, kinder, healthier, more successful human beings. 

However, why do we leave it so late? We underestimate little children’s ability to take in messages. As a primary teacher, I can assure you that the younger years are the most powerful ones to soak up new skills and attitudes that will stay with you! Why not start them early before attitudes become too deep set? Helping a child to perceive themselves as capable, confident and able to grow and change is surely the best gift we can give them.

Using Our Approach

Our approach is easy and fun to use. Children love our stories and so do parents. They find that children are striving to be like the characters in the story. Parents can then encourage them by referring back to what happened and re-inforcing the messages learned from the characters.

Let us help you to shift your child’s thinking. Let’s help them see that they can grow and change. 

Use Cape Ability today, to help nurture little minds.

Cape Ability in the Classroom

The Cape Ability approach is designed to develop a growth mindset within every child in a language even the youngest child can understand. The classroom climate becomes so positive as children develop the confidence, focus and determination to learn well. By referring to our learning character’s capabilities throughout lessons you can accelerate learning and create independent learners who buzz with enthusiasm.

Explore the Cape

From the shores of Barnacle Beach to Ladybird’s Log Pile, our characters spend their days learning and adventuring on Cape Ability.

Your child will follow the characters as they each go through their own struggles and develop new capabilities.  By reading the stories and reinforcing the behaviours, you will transform your child’s feelings about learning and can even improve behaviour too.  

Where Cape Ability is embedded in the classroom, this further develops the skills and leads to eager, motivated and focused learners.
