Customized Learning Pods for Upper and Lower Elementary

Our educational learning pods are structured to accommodate both upper elementary (ages 8-12) and lower elementary (ages 5-8) cohorts. Sessions are conveniently offered in the morning (9:15-12:15) and afternoon (11:45-2:45), with a built-in 30-minute overlap for collaborative activities.

In our lower elementary pod, students embark on a comprehensive three-hour journey, diving into core subjects while engaging in daily craft activities. Meanwhile, our upper elementary/middle pod focuses on content-based learning and real-world applications during its three-hour sessions.

Operating from September to May, our program includes four vacation weeks throughout the year to ensure a balanced learning experience for your child.

Academic Enrichment: The Benefits of Learning Pods at Kindergarten and Beyond Learning Center

  • Socialization: Homeschooling may sometimes lack avenues for social interactions. Learning pods offer a structured environment for children to engage socially, collaborate, and enhance vital interpersonal skills.


  • Diverse Perspectives: Learning pods typically bring together children from various backgrounds, fostering exposure to diverse viewpoints and nurturing a more enriched learning atmosphere.


  • Resource Sharing: By participating in learning pods, families can combine resources, share materials, and tap into collective expertise to make comprehensive education more affordable and effective.


  • Flexibility: Learning pods provide flexibility in scheduling, curriculum options, and teaching methodologies, catering to the distinct preferences and circumstances of each family involved.


  • Community Support: Homeschooling families can establish connections with like-minded peers through involvement in a learning pod, creating a supportive community that exchanges resources, ideas, and encouragement.


  • Specialized Instruction: Within each learning pod, educators are able to customize instruction to meet the specific needs and interests of the small group, thereby offering more personalized attention and support compared to larger classroom settings.

Empowering Readers Through Hands-On Learning

At Kindergarten and Beyond Learning Center, we prioritize phonological and phonemic awareness as foundational skills crucial for fluent reading and comprehension. 

  • Phonological awareness involves identifying and manipulating different sound elements in spoken language, while phonemic awareness focuses on recognizing individual phonemes within words. Understanding the stages of becoming a proficient reader, we provide foundational instruction grounded in reading science. 
  • Facilitated by certified educators, our hands-on lessons integrate a variety of curricula to accommodate different learning needs.
  • Choose from options of one, two, or four days a week, each featuring three-hour sessions covering essential subjects like literacy, numeracy, science, and history. 

Join us for a personalized educational journey aimed at nurturing your child’s growth and development.
