LANGHORNE, Pa. (CBS) — Parents in the Neshaminy School District are scrambling to find activities for their children while the teachers are on strike and some local businesses are stepping up to help out.

The teachers walked off the job Monday leaving parents little time to make plans to make sure their children are being cared for.

The Barnes and Noble Bookstore near the Oxford Valley Mall in Langhorne is starting a free service called “Keep Your Kids Thinking.”

Jeremy Sodano is the store’s assistant manager.

“It will be a time for us to just review the lessons that kids are being given in school as well as perhaps host some book discussions and also some preparatory sessions for testing,” Sodano explained.

The two hour event will take place Monday, Wednesday and Friday starting Wednesday, January 18th for the duration of the walkout. It will be led by retired and substitute teachers who work in the store. Parents must stay in the store during the lessons.

Action Karate in Lower Southampton is offering a day camp for kids 5 and up. There is a cost.

A negotiating session had been scheduled for Thursday night, but it was cancelled by the Neshaminy School Board when the teachers walked off the job Monday. The teacher’s union says it will still show up for the session.
