WHAT DO WE TEACH?
Our curriculum is designed and developed by qualified educators who have advanced degrees in education and early childhood technology. A significant part of our classes involves coding with ScratchJr and KIBO - a modular robot from KinderLab Robotics. (See the video on this page, from Tufts University in MA, explaining the research behind these early learning coding tools.)
WHO TEACHES THE CLASSES?
Our teachers are our strongest asset. Having both experience and background in early childhood education, they actively engage each child in the learning process with joy, patience, and care.
Working with small groups, our goal is to ensure success with each child. Most importantly, we expect the children to have positive experiences which will promote independent enthusiasm and a desire to explore more on their own.
Marsha Odell, owner and lead teacher, has a master's in education and has been teaching children and adults in technology for many years. Initially, she was part of a pilot program to teach summer computer camps to inner-city school children in Los Angeles. The software used was LOGO - one of the first programming languages available to children.
