Outdoor Pod Classes


No muss, no fuss, pod class. This 2-hour class will provide all the benefits of a preschool experience under the supervision of a licensed educator. Best of all, we will find the teacher, set up and do all the cleaning!

Classes take place outdoors at Leo Baeck Temple. Nestled between the valley and the city, Leo Baeck Temple ECC is a safe, home away from home to our students. Our award-winning facility provides a safe environment that is both stimulating and serene.

Each class will start with an open play time followed by a socially distanced circle time, allowing the children to welcome one another and provide much needed routine and structure. After circle time, the children will have the ability to work in our outdoor classroom. Stations will be organized to support cognitive development, social skills, school readiness, and provide a sense of normalcy during these uncertain times. Parents will also have the opportunity to participate in zoom discussion groups and receive up to two hours of one on one consultation with a child development specialist.

Pod size will be between 6-10 families depending on the space. If you have a group of families, you would like to be in a pod with we can set up a private class for your group.
