If you are a provider who went live prior to March 1, 2022, you will continue to have access to your current features as one of our legacy providers.
You can support pod learning by offering semester-long activities, camps and events, and custom small group learning packages. Each of these options works a little bit differently. That means your business has the flexibility to support new and existing customers.
Determining When Activities Are Learning Pod Appropriate
Parents are searching for pod learning enrichment options in every activity category!
Many activities that you already offer can be marketed to pods as extracurricular or special options. Providers can fill gaps in pod schedules and provide programming that will enrich the school day for children.
We recommend limiting pod learning activities to a small student capacity, embracing structure with weekly or semester-long options, and working with parents to make sure your offerings fit in with their daily schedules.
Adding Learning Pod Options to the Sawyer Marketplace
If you want to market your pod learning options using the Sawyer Marketplace, you should use Semesters or Camps/Events. Make sure to tag your activities that support pod learning so parents can easily find them on the Marketplace.
These schedule options also allow you to utilize premium options such as weekly pricing, monthly billing, and payment plans. These are great for creating recurring options to enrich existing learning pods.
Other Pod Learning Options
We also have two additional booking features that allow you to test offerings and merchandise small group learning options to see what works best for your customers. You can display these on your Sawyer widget.
At this time, appointments and parties are not discoverable on the Sawyer Marketplace.
If you’d like to offer specific availability for families to book tutoring, specialized instruction, space rental, or private lessons, consider using our Appointments feature.
Parties and Private Events
If you’re looking to gauge interest from families by offering a few package options with more concierge-style service, consider using our Parties/Private Event feature. This feature allows you to create custom packages that support events, field trips, birthdays, and any other small group learning option you can dream up!
