Teach your child to love learning with these five online learning resources that are informative, fun and educational.

1. National Geographic Kids

From history to geology and from theory to practicals, this website is packed with information that both children and parents will find useful. You can learn how to make paper straws, find out more about bushfires and discover interesting cultures from around the world. Kids can also play quizzes, watch videos and download educational resources to refer to later.

2. ABCMouse.com

This website caters for children aged two to eight years. Activities are spaced over 10 levels and focus on reading, math, science and arts. You will need a subscription, but the lessons provide a good starting point for the very young and are a great addition for kids who are already of school-going age.

3. Vodacom e-School

Vodacom e-School covers grade R right up to grade 12. The lessons are available in multiple official South African languages and are fully aligned with the Curriculum Assessment Policy Statement (CAPS), the educational guideline used in South African schools. The videos have been developed by expert teachers and come with interactive quizzes to ensure learners understand the material. If you use a Vodacom SIM card, the website is zero-rated, which means you can learn on the go without spending a cent on data or lessons! Find out more about Vodacom's e-School here.

4. Funbrain

Whether you're looking for reading material for your child, educational videos or edutainment, Funbrain has it all. You can search for resources per grade or navigate to games, reading, videos, the playground (which covers the younger kids) or the math zone.

5. BrainPOP

This website offers a wide range of educational material, for both educators and learners. Subjects range from science, health and math to English, social studies and current affairs. Children can watch videos, do challenges and worksheets, broaden their vocabulary and even learn to code! The educators' version of BrainPOP, meanwhile, offers lesson planning and professional development.
