Covid - Online Resources for Kids

Online Resources for Kids

Following the announcement that schools will be closed from Friday 20 March, we know that this is a time where children will be lacking routine and seeking stimulation. This can be taxing on a parent, especially if you are trying to get your own work done.

There is an abundance of free online educational and fun resources for children such as websites, YouTube channels and downloadable activities to keep children busy and learning.
