Home educating has never been easier with the huge array of learning resources now available on the internet. Even schools are relying on this form of resource more and more. Whatever your child’s interests or questions may be about, a quick internet search will soon present you with an array of answers ranging from information or educational downloads from specialised institutional or company websites, to ‘how to...’ videos on Youtube.
