Frequently asked questions

As a result of school closures due to COVID-19 schools that purchased annual licences for the YCDI! curricula programs will be allowed to continue the teaching by educators of YCDI! through distance learning.  Schools may distribute in print or electronically the content (e.g., Student Worksheets, modified Lesson Plans) of the programs.  The school login to access the curricula programs is not to be shared with parents or other individuals.
Schools may modify or abridge the lessons to suit their students’ needs during this period.  The Bernard Group cannot accept any responsibility for the accuracy or efficacy of any altered or abridged lesson sent home by schools.
Any YCDI! content, in any form, may only be shared with families in your school community.  The intellectual property of all YCDI! programs and resources, including any modifications made by schools of existing lessons for use at home by parents, remains with The Bernard Group. Schools are required to notify their parents of this at the time of distributing any YCDI! materials to their school community. Please see our full terms of use.
Annual licences purchased by schools are for use by educators within the school.  Sharing the school login with parents or other individuals outside the school is not permitted.

When purchasing a YCDI! elearning digital online curricula or other program your school is committing to an annual licence (365 days) from the date of enrolment.

If your school has more than one campus, a separate digital license for EACH program that each campus will be using must be purchased.  YCDI! digital resources accessed through a school’s LOG IN are not transferable between school campuses.  Each campus is required to have a unique LOG IN.
