Curriculum

Please note, City Kids is not endorsing these programs or these sites; some of our families may have used some of these programs, some may have been recommended by others, and some just look like they might be useful.  Every family has to decide for themselves what works for them.  Below is a list of some sites that offer (mostly) elementary aged curriculum, or they review curriculum; this list is merely a sample of what is out there, and we will be updating the list from time to time.
