Register for a Neighborhood Center Learning Pod

Are you looking for learning programs for your child who is attending virtual school? 

Orlando students headed back to Orange County Public Schools using its LauncheEd program can join a learning pod at one of six local city neighborhood centers for the first semester of school. Children will be supervised by the center and provided with academic support when needed. 

Students will be kept in fixed groups of nine and spaced 6 feet apart. Children will be dropped off at the entrance of the building where they will be temperature checked and screened before entering the facility. Staff will continually clean high touch surfaces and masks are required.


  • Drop off begins at 7:30 a.m.
  • Pick up is at 3 p.m.
  • Children will spend time outside playing during OCPS scheduled breaks and lunches. Snacks will be provided.
  • After-school programs run until 5:30 p.m. and require separate registration.

How much does it cost

Cost is $5 per day per child and those that qualify for the community support program can attend for free.
