Center for the Creative Arts offering Creative Pods Program
The Center for the Creative Arts launched on Sept. 10 its new Creative Pods Program on its Yorklyn campus.
“As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to disrupt our lives, we understand that families will need additional support this school year,” said CCA Executive Director Melissa Paolercio. “That’s why we created the pod program.”
The Creative Pods Program provides full-day care from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday, with an additional aftercare option until 5:30 p.m. for kindergarten through sixth grade students who are beginning their school year with virtual learning.
Groups of no more than eight students will be supported by a licensed Delaware teacher while they complete the curriculum provided by their schools. CCArts will continue to follow the strict social distancing and health and safety procedures implemented over the summer including temperature checks, social distancing, required mask wearing and disinfecting high-touch surfaces every 15 minutes to two hours. Arts enrichment will also be provided to students participating in the program.
“We know there is no good solution to juggling virtual schooling and working from home,” said Paolercio. “We felt strongly, after talking to our community, that we could provide a service that could relieve some stress from families. My children are here at the center learning virtually each day. It matters greatly to us here at CCArts that we come together now and provide services that the community needs in these unprecedented times.”
