Collection: Co-Work & Learn

What is Bumblebee’s Co-Work and Learn Program?

  • During this program, Bumblebee staff will supervise elementary school students (Kindergarten through 5th Grade) as they complete their e-learning tasks in a safe,  socially distanced, and fun environment.  
  • Students can take breaks from e-learning to engage with Bumblebee’s play activities (e.g. climbing wall, air hockey table, and more). Bumblebee staff may also lead children in group activities from time to time to provide breaks to the children throughout the day. 
  • Parents must remain onsite throughout the duration of the program, and can use the session time to complete their work at an assigned desk.  
  • Sessions are available between 8:00 am - 3:00 pm each weekday, Monday through Friday. Start and end times are flexible within this time frame, but there is a 3 hour minimum per day and the specific time frame for your child must be specified upon enrollment. 
  • Children will be asked to eat lunch with their parent/guardian in the café.  

How many children and adults are allowed per session?

  • At this time, enrollment will be limited to 12 children per day. 
  • There will also be a maximum of 12 adults who may co-work in the Bumblebee space during each session. A maximum of one adult may sign up per enrolled child. 

Can children be placed in the same group as a friend?

  • Yes! If you would like your child to sign up and be placed in the same group as another child, we can place them in the same group. 

How much will the program cost?

  • Families must make a minimum commitment of 2 weeks and have the choice of reserving a minimum of 3 hours/day for either 2 days per week, 3 days per week or 5 days per week.  
  • The cost is $10/hour with a minimum of 3 hours per day (minimum charge of $30/day). The specific time slot requested must be specified during registration and no refunds will be provided for unused time.

Do I need to wear a face covering? Does my child need to wear a face covering ?

  • Per Governor Pritzker's Executive Order, everyone in public spaces that is 2 years old or older must wear a mask, including children and adults enrolled in the Co-Work and Learn program. If you do not have a mask, we can provide one for $1. Bumblebee's on site Store also sells children’s reusable cloth masks.
