The Day Your Child’s Session Begins

Log into the virtual simulator- You will need to receive the Teacher Code before you can completely log in. Your child’s instructor will have emailed the Teacher Code to you. We ask that your child be logged into the virtual simulator 15 minutes prior to their session starting. This will maximize the time they will have working within the curriculum.
