Learning at home: Our big list of great resources

To complement the remote learning provided by schools, we've created a list of resources from around the world for parents and kids.

Following our super list of great ideas for kids at home, we’ve created a list of home learning resources for parents and kids, to complement the at home learning provided by schools.

We’ve loosely group these into age-appropriate categories, but be sure to check them all out as some suit varying age groups.

If you come across a great resource that you think others would find helpful, contact us with the details via email and we’ll add it to the list.
