Hybrid Learning Pods

at Country Roads 

Welcome to Country Roads Learning Pod.  A blended learning model to support distance-learning and provide students with academic, social, and emotional growth. As the leading Preparatory School for children ages 3 through 6 for 50 years, we are now proud to offer Learning Pods for children entering first through sixth grades. 

 

The Country Roads Learning Pod will provide a stimulating, safe, and enriching environment for students to do their on-line learning under the supervision of a teacher.  We also provide a wonderful place for children to meet after their in-school session for sports, art, socialization, and fun.

 

During these uncertain times we know that many of our families need a program with proven academic excellence and commitment to supplement the offerings of the public school.  

 

At the Country Roads Campus, we have dedicated learning space to provide an environment where students can stay focused and motivated to learn.  Our teachers will ensure that your child attends their online school sessions and understands the material completely, and will assist them with their independent assignments and homework.

 

Enjoying socialization and physical activity are important components in a child’s emotional well-being and growth. Your child’s health and safety are our top priorities.  We have implemented all the safeguards, following the CDC and Board of Health guidelines, including the recommended social distancing, frequent handwashing, and continuous disinfecting and sanitizing of workspaces with electrostatic sprayers. The protocols we have in place exceed recommended standards and allowed us to open camp for 6 weeks this summer. Teachers and students can interact in a safe manner.

 

A team of certified and highly qualified teachers will guide, support, and mentor children in grades 1st through 6th in an innovative way that allows families to balance school, work, and childcare.

Our full day customized program supports any district’s hybrid or full-time virtual learning. Students will remain enrolled in their schools, while also being a part of the Country Roads Learning Pods.
