Early start
Little children learn through play. That’s easy enough, but before you know it, it’ll be time for ‘Big School’. Start the search as soon as possible with this handy tool.


The foundation
Younger kids need a lot of assistance when it comes to school routines. Steer your child towards independence in the early grades with these downloads.


Growing up
Instil a love of maths in your child from an early age by making it fun and understandable. Yes, it is possible – especially with these zany websites.

Aiming high
Teenagers need you to speak their language. YouTube talks the talk quite nicely on a number of their dedicated learning channels. Warning: it’s addictive.


Further study
Tertiary students often find themselves in a sink-or-swim scenario, especially in the early years. Encourage online study groups to lighten the load.


For life
Learning is a lifelong process. It’s never too late to take up music or teach yourself about technology. Try some of these for fun.
