Learning Path

Learning to code can be difficult, but so is learning karate, gymnastics, or playing piano. Consistent practice, week after week, is how you become a great developer.
Here is how we do it, YouCode style:

  1. Illustration of Scratch cat using a PC

    AGE 4-9

    English Course

    We introduce children to the English language while teaching concepts that are propaedeutic for future programming education, to prepare them for school and to boost their long-term educational opportunities.

  2. Illustration of blocks of code with have cute faces

    AGE 5-7

    Programming Basics

    A beginner’s course that sets a solid foundation of the basics of technology and programming using block coding. The course covers fundamental programming concepts such as loops, conditional statements, sequences and more. No reading experience is required. Games and apps with visual programming languages teach programming logic and concepts before kids can read.

  3. Illustration of Scratch cat using a PC

    AGE 7-11

    Games development in Scratch

    Our customized curriculum expands on the Scratch platform to engage children in coding activities that reflect their unique interests. Scratch is a kids' programming language developed at MIT. Using virtual "blocks" rather than text, kids learn the logic of coding, complete fun projects and build a strong basis for future learning. The kids will learn to design, implement and test their own animations, stories and games.

An effective and thoughtful Curriculum

  • Project based learning

    Children learn hands-on by making programs, games and apps. Students gain confidence by using programming as much as possible in real-life situation by developing fun projects that they can share with friends and family.

  • Individual attention

    Class sizes are limited to ensure that a student to teacher ratio of 4:1 maintained. This way, each child can be personally tended to and given the attention they need to achieve their goals.

  • Your own pace

    Each student can progress however fast they are comfortable with, without time constraints, delays or make-up classes. Self-pacing enables kids to take time to explore topics that interest them most and ensure they have achieved skill mastery before moving on the other lesson.

  • Creativity and Fun

    Classes are designed to make children think beyond their usual patterns, broaden their mind, explore with their creativity and teach one another as they go along. All this, while having fun!

  • All in English

    Our curriculum is all in English, and our teachers are native, bilingual or advanced English speakers with backgrounds in Computer Science. They are always there to support and inspire the students along their journeys.

  • Future-ready

    At YouCode we provide a great amount of in-house built projects that students can try. We teach the programming concepts and languages powering smartphones, robotics, virtual reality, video games, AI and more.
