MoCA Offers Pod Learning Program For Kids

Distance and hybrid learning is a challenge for everyone.

MoCA Westport wants to help.

A new “Pod Learning Program” provides supplemental educational support to Westport students, as they navigate distance and hybrid learning.

The program offers support to students ages 6-11 in math and literacy, along with a robust art curriculum.

MoCA says, “In this challenging time, our program will ensure that foundational concepts introduced in elementary school classrooms will be reviewed, students’ homework will be completed, 1-on-1 tutoring sessions will be readily available, and art education will be woven throughout.

“As an active contemporary art museum, students will also have the opportunity to directly explore and engage with MoCA Westport’s exhibitions. The arts-focused portion of the curriculum will go beyond arts and crafts to include in-depth projects consistent with current exhibition themes.”

MoCA’s outdoor space will allow students to play outside and social safely. Modern indoor spaces will be used too.

Students will be grouped in consistent “pods,” with others from their school and grade. Parents are encouraged to form a pod from their school, and register as a group of 6 students.

Morning and afternoon sessions are available, with 1-way transportation provided. Students attending in the morning will receive transportation to their school post-session; afternoon students will receive transportation from their school to MoCA Westport.

The program’s core curriculum teachers are accredited and established
teachers with experience in traditional classroom settings. Arts education
teachers are established instructors with a depth and range of projects that “create dialogue, build creativity, and foster a deeper understanding and appreciation for the arts.”

All health and safety measures will be explicitly followed including physical
distancing and wearing face masks indoors at all times.
