Taking care of our kids education during COVID
Not only are our customers rental business operators, they are often moms and dads with children hungry for attention. In this time of social distancing and remote work, our customers have a responsibility to their business and their kids’ education while the family is stuck at home.
As a parent at Texada, I want to ensure that our customers know where to find online resources to keep their kids learning, especially in cities where schools have closed. Here is a comprehensive list of what we feel are the best sites to find online learning. Many of them have extended free trials at this time.
Much thanks to Betsy Brown Braun, who is an author and educator, and published much of the list here. We will continue to build on this list as we find more awesome online resources to educate and engage our children.
At Texada, we care deeply about lifelong learning, especially when it comes to children and how we can help them develop a growth mindset.
