June 16 @ 11:00 am - 7:30 pm

There have been some major changes to the school environment over the last few months. It’s no doubt that between working from home and parenting that adding schooling on top of that can feel overwhelming, so we are bringing on an expert to help your children continue learning in a stress-free way during the summer.

Jessica Stairs, an elementary French immersion teacher in Ottawa, will be talking to parents about keeping kids engaged and learning during the summer while answering questions that parents may have about learning gaps as a result of the pandemic shutdown.

In this webinar we’ll be talking about:
– Weaving learning throughout your regular summer activities

– Maintaining language skills over the summer for second language learners
– How much is too much?
