In this digital age, coding is widely regarded as the new literacy. The benefits of coding for kids are aplenty, such as honing their problem-solving skills, exercising their creativity and logical thinking.
In fact, it has been mandated in 2019 by the government that all upper primary pupils in Singapore will have compulsory coding classes so as to expose students to coding.
So if you’re considering letting your child try out coding before the school classes kick in, we have listed the best coding classes for kids in Singapore.
Founded in 2016, the Singapore-based coding school – Kodecoon Academy aims to expose students to digital literacy and computational skills to prepare them for the fast-changing world of technology.
At Kodecoon Academy, kids learn the basics of coding using ‘Scratch’ – a programming software developed by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) that enables users to create media such as animated stories and games. With a curriculum to provide students with avenues for self-exploration, Kodecoon Academy’s goal is to equip every student with the knowledge and skills to transform their ideas into reality with code.
The Bright School team takes time to know each student before personalising a curriculum that fits the kid’s interests and learning speed. The classes will be then delivered by skilled teachers – 100% of them have both coding and education experience. With the online 1:1 format, kids aged 6-14 years old can learn coding at flexible timings, from the comfort of their home and at an affordable rate.
Bright School is founded by alumni from Harvard University, Amazon and Grab. With the mission of educating kids to the creators of technology, Bright School has attracted students from more than 10 countries. You can book a free trial class with them via their website.
