As parents across the Garden State scramble to make fall plans for their children, many are considering “pods”: small groups of similarly-aged children, co-learning in co-quarantine. But if all those text chains and spreadsheets are overwhelming you, outdoor enrichment company Treebath may offer your solution.
With Treebath’s new “pod” program, parents can leave their children with trusted supervisors in a safe environment. Each pod also caps off at 5 children, keeping contact limited and responsible.
With science agreeing that the outdoors are generally better during the pandemic, Treebath’s fresh air is more than just pleasant. Outdoor learning is both stimulating and safer.
“Our goal is to provide an option for parents to have their children learning in a safe outdoor environment, no matter what type of schooling decision they make,” said co-founder Nicole Joy Elmgart in an online statement. “…So far, the response has been overwhelming.”
While all-remote learning may let some sleep easier at night, it still presents scheduling challenges—especially for working parents. That’s why Treebath will allow parents customization options when they register to make the load more bearable for families.
If figuring out conflicting work schedules and rotation calendars with other parents is proving daunting, a stable set-up in the great outdoors may be just what the doctor ordered.
