Helping families and businesses solve the childcare and education dilemma
Learning pods and micro schools are holistic and highly functional learning alternatives.
What is a learning pod?
These are also referred to as Pandemic Pods, Micro Schools, education pods. They are simply, students gathering together in a small group of school-age children of similar age or grade-level with adult oversight to learn, create, and socialize. Pods can range in group size from 5-20 for ages Pre-K through Middle School.
Over the past year a variety of models have surfaced such as In-Home Pods with Virtual Curriculum and Traditional Homeschool Curriculum, Community-based, and Workplace Pods with themes varying from Forest Schools with learning focused on nature and being outdoors, Montessori-inspired models, and traditional school curriculum delivered virtually.
Some pods are run by parents/family and the family group may rotate each week to share in the responsibility. Other pods whether in-home or the community are lead by certified teachers who are classroom experienced, have background checks and clearances, and other trainings.
All TEACHERS2U Pods and Micro Schools are lead by state certified teachers with classroom experience, pass criminal and child abuse background checks, and are trauma-inform trained - critical for the post-pandemic classroom.
All TEACHERS2U learning spaces are low teacher:student ratio and have at least one teachers aide.

Pods and Micro-schools are the best way to create stability, supportive learning and the meaningful social connection our kids and families need.
A recent poll by RealClear Opinion Research indicates parents want alternative options in the in-school model "Are you more or less likely to enroll your son or daughter in a home school, neighborhood home school co-op, or virtual school once the lockdowns are over?”
In response, 40.8% said they were more likely to choose one of the alternative schooling methods"
