LEXINGTON, Ky. (LEX 18) — Many school districts, including Fayette County, have already decided to begin the school year online, so a local company is trying to relieve some of the stress on parents who are trying to balance both school and work.

Base110, an office leasing space in downtown Lexington, is transforming their event work space into an area where kids can do their NTI work while their parents work.

"If we can take some of that anxiety away from the parents, so they can get back to work and their kids can get back to school, then that’s a win for us," says community manager Meredith Moore.

The idea is parents can monitor their kids in a controlled space. Moore is hoping to have volunteer educators as well who can help facilitate not only the online learning but in case kids have questions on their assignments.

"It provides friendships and bonding that I think all of us as humans really need from being isolated I think that will be a huge win as well," Moore said.

But they need help getting started. They are looking for educators and after-school programs to partner with as they build baseEDU, if you are interested, email heyyall@base110.com for more information.
