Classicle was founded by David Donadio, a communications professional and father of two D.C. public school children. In the weeks after the schools of the nation’s capital shut down for the COVID pandemic in March 2020, Donadio saw first-hand how difficult distance learning can be for students — especially young ones — and how critical peer interaction is for social, emotional and intellectual development. He and his colleagues sought to create a solution that would keep children on track.
The result is Classicle.
Launching initially in the District of Columbia, Virginia and Maryland, we’re a growing community of families, teachers, tutors, childcare providers and more, built to address the needs of children, parents, and employers. Whether you’re looking to form a cooperative learning pod with other families or find a teacher to lead one, or you’re a provider with the skills to keep students engaged and learning, you’re welcome here.
Our children need the freedom to learn the way they learn best, whatever that means for each individual. For the math whiz capable of speeding through lessons years past their grade level, the student who needs more individual attention learning to read, or for the kids of all ages who need outlets to code, play sports, music, and participate in other group activities, Classicle can connect your children with people who can help them on your terms.
