Also called “pandemic pods,” micro-schools or nano-schools — are small groups of students (typically 3 to 10 children) who learn together outside the classroom but still in person.
Our Learning Pods:
Each pod has no more than 6 students, but often the pods are even more intimate with a student-teacher ratio around 4-1
The pod your child joins corresponds to their grade level (e.g., kindergarteners are in the kindergarten pod.)
The pod curriculum is designed to match and enhance grade-level learning standards.*
For students in K-2nd grade, socioemotional learning is imperative for their all-around development.
In recent years, it’s become apparent that our youngest students (i.e., K-2) benefit tremendously from receiving instruction in small groups.
Math, ELA, or Both
Finding quality teachers and tutors is hard. Finding quality K-2 teachers and instructors is extra hard.
Because a great K-2 teacher needs to know more than just what to teach. A great K-2 teacher has ultra-high emotional intelligence and can connect with the youngest of students to form trust and respect.
Our teacher-selection process is arduous to ensure students have instructors so passionate and effective, they’ll remember them for years to come.
We search high and low, find the perfect K-2 teachers, and then invest in honing their craft. The result? An absolute force of a teacher, who has as much heart as a brain.
Our instructors often are hired with impressive qualifications, whether they be pursuing degrees in childhood development or adolescent mental health, but either way, we train them up on: social emotional learning.
