K-1 Pod

We now have ongoing enrollment for our K-1 Pod!

With the first few weeks of school under our belts, we all have a better understanding of how the eLearning process will go this semester. Are you feeling like the first few weeks of eLearning were pretty intense? We are here to help! GCM has opened our Kindergarten Pod up to 1st Graders and created ongoing enrollment so you can register anytime throughout the semester.

The K-1 Pod is more than just tutoring or daycare! It’s a meaningful classroom experience supervised by four certified teachers, with hands-on activities that bring eLearning lessons to life off the screen.  Our teachers will help your child with math and reading skills at a pace that works for your child. Miss Ashley will lead circle time, arts and crafts, writing practice, and more. Plus, we have recess activities designed to stretch those little legs and get the wiggles out so your child is more focused back in the classroom.

The K-1 Pod is so much more than a drop-in center, it’s a community! Your child will learn and grow with the same teacher and classmates throughout the semester, allowing our teachers to give 1:1 attention to each child and tailored support based on your child’s needs. The K-1 Pod is designed to provide the benefits of a traditional classroom in a small, physically distant setting. Our classes have no more than 10 kids and plenty of room for physical distancing. To learn more about what we are doing to keep our campers and teachers safe, visit GlazerMuseum.org/cleansafefun.

Kindergarten and 1st Grade are a time to practice school skills, routines, social and emotional skills, and learning in a group, and we’re here to help!

Cancellation Policy

We will continue to monitor Hillsborough County Public Schools’ plan for the school year and will strive to be as flexible as possible to meet your family’s needs, but space is very limited. We will make every effort to fill your camper’s spot with another child who needs eLearning support. If we are able to find another camper, the remainder of your tuition can be refunded.
