Resources and support for you

We asked practitioners and families to tell us where they source appropriate learning materials for their children during the lockdown.

Below is a representation of the popularity of places to go for learning materials during lockdown based on the responses to our survey both by professionals and families. Most popular places are represented by larger text size.

 

Below is a table with all the suggested places and links listed in alphabetical order.

Please note: These places reflect the preferences of our participants. There is no commercial relationship between the research team and any of the providers listed.
