Sometimes it feels like all we hear is that screen time is bad for our kids, but we know that the issue with screens is the content consumed rather than the device itself.
1. Kids learn to code like nobody’s watching
We all know, you’re much more likely to stick with a something if you enjoy it. Student-centered, self-paced, and mastery-based learning are the core values behind all Hatch’s coding classes. They’ve found the sweet spot between support and self-discovery.
2. Kids learn to “talk computer”
3. Kids coding classes foster the entrepreneurial mindset
Coding is the command between two things to make an action occur. Hatch’s coding programs cultivate kids’ entrepreneurial skills from an early age. They learn to investigate, think critically, fail forward and turn an idea into reality.
4. Coding helps kids understand the world
Our kids are growing up in an age ubiquitous to screen time. Coding teaches them to be creators of technology rather than passive consumers. The actions behind their favourite apps no longer seem magical, they become logical
5. Most importantly, kids love their coding programs
What do kids want out of their screen time? They want it to be fun and Hatch’s coding classes for kids delivers that in spades. Their coding programs appeal to themes they love like Art, Minecraft, Pokemon and more. With over 350 projects, there is a something to suit all interests and skill levels.
Do you want to send your kid to one of Hatch’s summer coding camps?
Good news! Hatch is giving away a one week, half-day camp and you could send your kid for one of the last few weeks of summer. The camps are at one of three Hatch locations in Toronto, Richmond Hill, or Oakville.
