Why should your child learn to code?

Because it’s fun. We could stop there… but the truth is, that’s just the tip of the iceberg. Learning to code will help your kids develop essential skills like creativity, problem-solving, critical thinking and collaboration. Equipping them with the skills for a world where computer science jobs make up 71% of all new jobs.


Benefits of Coding

Language Learning

The skills your child learns from coding can be directly applied to grammar rules and language structures - making it easier for them to learn others!


As kids learn to code, they’ll begin to break down complex problems into bite-size chunks that develop their logic and problem-solving skills.

Curiosity. Confidence. Creativity.

Coding allows kids to explore and develop their creativity, curiosity and confidence through its versatility - from making cardboard robots come to life to designing their own arcade games.
