Summer Activities with LearnPlay Foundation

    LearnPlay Foundation is thrilled to be launching a suite of special summer activities designed specifically with the COVID-19 lockdown in mind.

We know the best platforms for productive. moderated learning and won’t collect sensitive personal data without parental authorisation…and the best part: we’re not just restricted to the summer holidays!
