Your Guide To Learning Pods in NYC

October 2, 2020

While virtual learning may work for some students, one size does not fit all when it comes to getting an education. With the school year now in full swing, parents shouldn’t feel nervous about sending their kids into the classroom or whether or not they’re actually retaining information when logging on their Zoom class. There is no shortage of new services available to NYC families to explore every option for their student(s). We’ve gathered up the best in the business so you can “send” them to school, worry-free.

Babysitters Guild

For 80 years, the Babysitters Guild has matched busy families with in-home nannies and highly-vetted sitters all across NYC. This fall, they’ve expanded their offerings to include Learning Support for children enrolled in Pre-K to 6th grade in public or private schools. Their teaching assistants all come from a background in academic training or professional education to ensure that each child reaches the structure and encouragement they need for their education.

Learning Pods

Learning Pods take the at-home learning stress away from parents who are contemplating the task of homeschooling their children this year, or putting their health at risk and sending them to school. They group together children close in age and location for small group learning for a hands-on, collaborative-based learning experience in the safety of the home.
