Home Schooling Lockdown 2021
We are yet again in Lockdown and the majority of children are being home schooled again. This presents a challenge for many parents who are trying to work and juggle lessons.
All schools have set this up differently some providing plenty of work and others not so much. Some online live lessons, others recorded or not at all.
All children are different with some happy and capable enough to get on with things themselves and others needing a lot more input from adults.
We have seen a surge in parents enquiring about Childcare this past week and through our trusted network have placed Nannies with these families to enable them to be able to work.
For those not bringing in Childcare and who need different ways to engage their children in home learning we have sourced a few ideas for you that may help.
