Learning Resources For Kids

Learning Resources for Kids

With schools closed for at least another two weeks, we know that the challenges of keeping your kids occupied at home are mounting.

We know it is going to be incredibly hard to keep your cooped-up kids from bouncing off the walls, away from excessive time in front of screens and their learning on track. That’s why we’ve put together a collection of free online learning and activity resources. We hope that these resources will help you nurture your kids’ creativity and curiosity and keep them learning, active and entertained over the next couple weeks.

** The Ontario Government has provided the following website for high-school students to keep up with their learning: https://lah.elearningontario.ca/
