by | Parent Resources, Technology

It’s no secret that technology surrounds us. When it comes to our children, they are often better and more experienced when it comes down to using technology. Since using technology is something children often enjoy, it can be easier to encourage educational activities on these devices. Our children don’t spend very much time on the computer, but when they do, we’d like it to be as educational as possible. Here is a list of our team’s top five favourite educational websites. Enjoy!

1. Wonderopolis

Wonderopolis provides your child with the opportunity to discover a new wonder each day and has fun, kid-friendly games, lessons, and crafts that are all focused on learning.

2. Funbrain

Funbrain provides a great variety of free educational games, books, and comics that help preschool to grade 8 children acquire new skills in reading, math, and problem solving. Parents can trust that Funbrain will always deliver a fun and safe online experience.
