Micropods are small groups of children who come together to play and learn. Micropod families agree to limit their exposure to people outside of their pod. Pods normally consist of 3 - 6 children and are becoming a popular solution to learning through the coronavirus pandemic.
We work with micropods to take the planning out of play & development by bringing you quality curriculum and curated supplies.
Strong Start's micropods focus on learning through play for ages 6-months to 5-years. Our activities and curricula are developed to support children through their different ages and stages of learning and development.
