Learning Pods

Alternative learning environments have been formed across Canada; they include learning pods and schools. Each will support the well-being of the child and support your family’s values for healthier environments and inclusive education. With the current mandates of children having to social distance while wearing masks for many hours per day, many parents seek alternative ways to experience learning and socializing without restrictions.

  • What is a learning POD?

    A learning pod is a small group of students who learn together outside of a traditional school setting, but still in person. Learning pods allow students to independently engage in remote learning in a safe and productive environment during typical school hours. Learning pods can be particularly helpful for parents whose jobs make it challenging for them to oversee a robust remote learning experience from home.

  • Who can benefit?

    Learning pods are an option for families who are trying to make the best of school closures in a more coordinated way. They foster an engaging, social learning environment and can help offset feelings of isolation that students may experience as a result of remote learning.

  • How much does it cost?

    Learning pod costs will vary depending on your location, the instructor’s level of experience and how many students are in each pod.

  • How to find a learning POD in your area?

    There are reputable learning pod organizations across the country and many that are private and aren't advertised publicly. Connect with a Mama Bears Learning pod coordinator and we can help you discover which options are available to you locally.
