Many parents are considering homeschooling for the first time ever, because of health and safety concerns brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic. Perhaps you had been perfectly happy sending your children to private school, charter school, or public school for years, but now you’re starting to think that in-person learning in a traditional school setting is not safe enough yet, even though your school district assures you it is. Some families may have a high-risk parent, guardian, or other members; and they do not want to risk the exposure from sending their child to the local school.

The concept of the learning pod is starting to trend, as an in-between option that is not distance learning but also not as risky as going to school, even if children wear masks. According to the New York Times, “Learning pods — also called “pandemic pods,” micro-schools or nano-schools — are small groups of students (typically three to 10 children) who learn together outside the classroom but still in person. Some pods are hiring tutors to teach a child's school curriculum; some pods are sharing teaching duties among parents.”
At The Sunshine Method, we want to help! Most parents have jobs, child care and many other things to do, and managing lesson plans and a study program can be very time-consuming, especially if you don’t have teaching experience and have forgotten most of what you learned in high school.
The Sunshine Method has created a special learning pod program that balances remote learning with in-person education, creating a regular “school day” feel with a mix of online learning and personalization for all children in the learning pod.
