Classes for Learning Pod Enrichment and Remote Learning Support in NYC

Many New York City parents are turning to learning pods, made up of small groups of like-minded families, to alleviate the stress during this surreal time of part-time school schedules. But, beyond the regular remote learning curriculum, what's a learning pod to do? Many of our favorite local providers and community orgs are stepping up to the plate, offering extra enrichment for your learning pod. If you don't have a pod, some of these spots help you build one; and, if you'd rather go-it-alone, others provide plenty of support for remote learners with drop-off programs where kids can complete assignments and receive tutoring support in safe, supervised environments.

These programs cover all kinds of experiences, from classic tutoring and homework help to outdoor adventures to music to sports. Queens' Playday comes to the rescue of parents looking for distance-learning help, spreading out from its usual Long Island City locale to...wherever you need them. Need a place outside the house to connect your kids to distance learning? FIAF hears you—and can also set your kids up with a little French language on the side.

Read on for 19 learning pod programs and venues offering remote learning support who are enrolling for the fall. Visit our Guide to Classes for NYC Kids for more options, plus be sure to check out our Back-to-School Fair to find more virtual and in-person programs for fall.
