Tips Featured Apps: Parent Approved

We asked our SKT staff to name their top three favorite apps and/or online resources. Besides being SKT employees, Heather Welk, Payroll Clerk, and Jacob Hamilton, Customer Service Specialist, are both parents in households with younger children, so their answers included some resources that might be helpful to other parents. In fact, Heather responded to our question with, “I’m giving you my top four children’s apps, because let’s face it … it’s my life now. I thought maybe other parents would find them beneficial.”
