Education & Activities Guide 2020-2021

Private schools, remote learning programs, classes, tutors and more for 2020-2021

By Barbara Evangelista, Publisher August 20, 2020


Our Education & Activities Guide gathers together local options for private schools, after school and remote learning programs, online classes, tutoring and more.

This coming school year will be a year like no other.  Parents are looking for resources that will help encourage, engage and educate their children, while helping to build and reinforce the social connections that are so important for kids.  Many families also need child care programs for school age children to ensure they are safe and cared for while parents work and children learn remotely.  

Would you like to add your program to our guide?  Please email Barbara at BarbaraE@MacaroniKid.com.
