Why should my child learn to code?

The future global job market will demand people with the ability to code, or at least the ability to understand its nuances.

At home, Singapore’s Smart Nation vision, as outlined by our Prime Minister, will require a determined team of developers, designers and leaders who understand code and think critically. And the younger you start them, the better.

I don't want my child to become a computer programmer. Why does he need to learn coding?

Learning to code itself cultivates a set of structured and logical thinking concepts, termed as Computational Thinking, which has far-reaching impacts across many facets of your child’s life.

Is my child too young to learn coding?

Our courses are designed for children as young as 7. However, this is simply a guideline, as that is when most children gain enough understanding in natural languages and general knowledge.

Children as young as 5 can understand Computational Thinking through non-text teaching methods. If your child is already ahead of their peers, simply contact us and we will advise you on each individual child.

My child has no interest in coding or computers at all. How will these courses help?

If your child has a smartphone or ever asked to play with the tablet, chances are he or she is already interested in one of technology’s many uses. Bring your child’s potential from behind the screen into the programmes that power it with our fun-filled courses. Our holiday camps, in particular, are designed to spark kids’ interests.

How are we different from the other coding academies?

Roboto Coding Academy offers a very low 1:3 teacher-student ratio so that each child can receive close guidance from our instructors.

Our instructors are also of very high quality–they are MOE-registered STEM graduates with a range of teaching experiences.

Lastly, our curriculum is structured and progressive, such that our Genius Coders gradually build up a strong foundation in coding.
They are also exposed to coding in different domains (games, mobile apps, website, maker, robotics).

Weekly Coding Classes

Are there free trials? Why do we need it?

Yes, you can sign up for free trials here. The trials are required as they also double as a pre-enrollment assessment so that we can create a curriculum that is personalised for your child.

What happens during the free trial?

Students will undergo a trial lesson and learn some of the programming languages that we teach in our Genius Coder Programme. There is also a short 10 to 15 minute parents’ consultation during the trial.

Does my child require any prior experience?

No, our curriculum is designed for children to learn effectively even without prior coding or computer background.

How do I know if the programme is suitable for my child?

Our EPIC pedagogy builds a Personalised Curriculum Roadmap for each student to ensure the programme is suitable for him/her.

Why are the courses so expensive?

Our costs are driven mainly by the quality of our instructors and the cutting-edge technology-education tools we use to teach in class.

Our prices are already set at the lowest possible for a sustainable academy delivering quality education.

What do I need to bring for class?

Laptops, Tablets, Robotics & Maker kits will be provided by us. However, we encourage students to bring their own laptops so that our instructors can install the necessary software for them to continue their learning back home.

What is the typical class size?

Our class size consists of about 2 to 12 students.

We guarantee a 1:3 Teacher-Student ratio for all our courses. So, if a class has only 5 pupils, we would still assign 2 instructors.

Can my child participate in competitions?

Roboto Coding Academy collaborates with our working partners to co-host competitions and also sources for national competitions to participate. Our students are encouraged to sign up for competitions and Roboto Coding Academy will help with the registration and preparation.
