For some students, trying to study while caring for children at home is extremely difficult. Over the next few weeks, we will be adding some resources, ideas and support links for those who will be trying to work, while having children in the household.  Please note, while these are free there may be a cost for a few for a further upgrade. However they are fantastic resources for a variety of ages. Most of these resources have come from the Home Education community, but just pick and choose what may work for you.
