KaiPod Learning offers alternative in-person learning environment in Phoenix

Posted

KaiPod Learning recently opened its first Arizona locations in Glendale, Scottsdale and Gilbert. It has four more locations opening in the next month in Georgia, Massachusetts, and New Hampshire.

KaiPod Learning centers are designed specifically for self-paced learning; each child is matched with a peer group of 8–10 students and an experienced Learning Coach that provides one-on-one academic support, tailored enrichment activities (such as art, coding, music) and opportunities for collaboration, a press release stated.

“We pride ourselves in offering a personalized approach in an imaginative, professional environment that offers learners the opportunity to thrive given their individual needs academically, socially and personally.” CEO Amar Kumar, said in the release. “We are excited for our new Phoenix locations and supporting local families on their educational path.”

KaiPod Learning centers are led by experienced Learning Coaches, who are all former classroom teachers that have a desire to work with students one-on-one. They support each learner’s academic goals, course progress and provide opportunities for small-group socialization.

A recent case study by Center on Reinventing Public Education stated KaiPod Learning is “the best gig in education right now.”

The study also highlights KaiPod Learning’s mission: “Kumar believes that this kind of hybrid model of online and real-world education can meet the needs of parents who want more control over their children’s learning environments, educators who want to focus on building relationships and curating experiences, and students who want more social and hands-on activities to accompany their online learning.”

KaiPod Learning supports students in grades 3–12, utilizing any online school or homeschool curriculum. The center is open Monday–Friday, 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. It offers two, three and five day plans to give families flexibility to fit within their schedule and budget as well as accepts ESA payments as an approved ClassWallet vendor.
