Free Resources

 

In today’s generation of Internet, we can get useful information and resource support at virtually no cost to us. We know our children best. Accordingly, the challenge for us as parent-educators is how to incorporate these materials into our children’s learning program.

Although me and my children have visited and used the sites listed below, please be aware that websites change frequently. I suggest that you check a website for safety and contents before letting your children surf through it.
