With most school and work virtual these days, our daily routines can get a little repetitive. Switching up the daily routine as much as you can helps regain interest. Four Seasons Hotel and Resort Orlando at Disney World is offering a Schoolcation that makes virtual learning more fun for the kids, and offers a much-needed break for parents.

 

Now it’s easier than ever to plan a family getaway while school is in session. During the stay, parents can enroll virtual learners in a supervised schoolwork session held in a quiet learning space on the resort property. The schoolwork sessions are supervised by the Kids For All Seasons team in the spacious event rooms. There will be no more than six kids per class and each student will have a dedicated desk area and will be socially distanced from the other students.

 

The kids will follow a daily schedule:

  • 9 a.m.–12 p.m.: Supervised virtual learning and assistance, snack break included (half-day participants depart at noon)
  • Lunch break: Students opting for a full day will order lunch off a set menu
  • 1–2 p.m.: Optional enrichment period – choice of arts and crafts or physical education
  • 2–3 p.m.: Continued virtual learning
  • 3 p.m.: Parents pick up their children, or sign their kids into the Kids For All Seasons program that offers complimentary supervised childcare and programming until 5 p.m.

 

The sessions will be available Monday–Friday and priced at $50 per child for a half-day session and $100 per child for the full session, including lunch. Because of social distancing and limitations, reservations are needed and must be confirmed at least 48 hours in advance.

 

After the school sessions and school work is done, kids can experience the ultimate recess at the property’s private, five-acre water park. Relax in the lazy river, zoom down the waterslides and swim in the giant pool.

 

While the kids are off having fun and learning, parents can take a much-needed break relaxing and rejuvenating by the adults-only pool.
