THE Learning Pod Group in Port Kennedy has been the realisation of a dream for Teisha Hoyer.
Mrs Hoyer and her husband Daniel were foster carers for 10 years.
They had a passion for helping children in foster care to rebuild their lives and give them a safe environment.
The couple then decided to start an education facility for children who were struggling at school.
They enlisted the help of a team of experienced educators and sourced a large range of educational programs and resources.
The aim at the Learning Pod is to help children flourish at primary and secondary school by turning to more hands on teaching methods.
There are specialists who can help children with special education needs to reach their goals and dreams.
The facility is for foster kids, those with learning disabilities (such as dyslexia and autism) and children with hunger for more knowledge to develop their passions.
Mrs Hoyer said the Learning Pod Group also catered for children with anxiety who could not leave home or attend school.
“We saw that there was a huge need to help children, stop the cycle, educate children and equip them for life ahead,” she said.
“Everyone has something that they are special at, no matter your past, look or situation.
“We should all get the opportunity to grow as an individual!”
Mrs Hoyer said the facility provides a space for teachers to equip them with what they are passionate about – teaching.
“We offer one on one sessions or sessions in small groups,” she said.
The Learning Pod Group offers tutoring, classes, assessments and parties.
