Unlock Your Child's Potential By Teaching Them To Code.

What's Code?

Coding Is The Process Of Giving Your Computer A Set Of Instruction To Follow

Computer programs are written in programming languages that provide the computer step by step instructions. You can learn more here.

Code makes up everything from this website, to all of your favorite applications, and much more.

Programmers do more than make apps! Many work in biotechnology,  robotics, business and more.

The earlier that students learn to code the sooner they can create games and apps they love to use.

Benefits Far Beyond Coding

One of the most rewarding parts of learning to code with us are all of the “secondary” benefits. Because we allow students the freedom to create something that is truly their own, you’ll notice changes that help make them successful in anything they choose to do. Below are the ones parents mention to us the most!

Collaboration

Our classes encourage working with a diverse group of students from all backgrounds. They learn to add to their creations by working with others.

Creativity

Students decide what they want to create, we help them learn what’s necessary to pursue their own ideas. This makes both learning and teaching more fun as everyone is driven to pursue goals that they’ve set out for themselves.

Math

Math skills go hand-in-hand with our approach to programming. Students gain a curiosity and respect for the math they learn in school after applying what they’ve learned to create games and animations they love.

Project Management

Any great programmer can tell you that planning and project management are just as important as actually writing code. We teach our students a process for turning their ideas into concrete plans before they ever open a computer. 

Problem Solving

The ability to solve complex problems is always in demand. No matter what your child does, they’ll be prepared.

Self Confidence

We emphasize that you have to make mistakes and fail to learn and grow. Students learn to celebrate their mistakes and recognize them as learning opportunities. This mindset is invaluable as students take on increasingly difficult goals. 

A Unique Approach To Teaching Coding

We’re focused on ensuring every child who joins Code Naturally has every opportunity to learn and grow. We treat every child uniquely and tailor our lessons to their needs. Every student gets individual attention when they’re struggling with new and difficult concepts.

You’ll see your child progress at his or her own pace through the individual instruction carefully planned by a Code Naturally instructor. When a student doesn’t grasp a concept and needs guidance, we’re there to support them.

Student Driven Projects

Students guide their learning by deciding what they’d like to create within the requirements laid out by educators.

Real World Programming

Students complete projects from top universities using Javascript, the language of the web.

1 On 1 Instruction

Students get personalized, individual attention as they learn new & challenging concepts.
