Learning kits may be borrowed, at no charge, for one to two weeks at a time. One week for home school parents and two weeks for teachers. However if more than one teacher in the school will be using the kit it may be booked for up to three or four weeks. Extensions can possibly be made by contacting our office Booking in advance is necessary to ensure kit availability.
Teachers are expected to check the kit contents when they first receive it and let us know via email if there are any problems. Please ensure that everything is present (and clean) and complete the feedback form. Feedback helps us keep our kits functional.
Kits are usually delivered through the regular school delivery system and returned in the same manner. Notice that the kit has been placed into the delivery system is emailed to the teacher on the day that it is dropped off at their respective central office.
All others borrowing our kits etc. are responsible for their own pick-up and return directly at our Praxis office. These items must be returned on the day that it is due. Please phone or email us for details regarding access to our office.
Note: Please phone us prior to dropping off or picking up an item at the Praxis office to ensure that someone will be there to assist you.
Reserve resources on-line or give us a call. The more notice you give us the better your chance of receiving the kit exactly when you want it.
Note: If you'd like a subject matter specialist to speak to your class while your class is on a kit's topic or perhaps do a field trip to a business or location related to the topic, just add this request in the note section of the online form and we'll see what we can do.
