5 Reasons Your Kid Should Learn to Code

…and how Coding can set Them up for a Successful Career

Everyone should learn how to program a computer, because it teaches you how to think, Steve Jobs famously said over 20 years ago. Now, more than ever, there is a necessity for our kids to be more tech savvy.

Coding is the new Global Language

Coding is behind just about every technology we use – texting, sending an email, booking tickets online. Having that knowledge means a deeper understanding of how the world works today.

Kids Learn Better when they Start Younger

Learning code can be challenging for adults new to the skill, and so, teaching children to code when they learn faster and more easily is ideal.

Set Your Kids up for a Secure Future

There is always a demand for coders. Giving your child a headstart in an area that’s only getting bigger, is setting them up for the future. Tech jobs are generally well-paid, but whether they go down the tech route or not, coding is a useful skill to have.

Unleash Your Child’s Creativity

Coding is an extremely creative activity, with enormous scope to create amazing products.

Increase your Child’s Confidence

Learning any new skill increases confidence, but giving your child an understanding of how every day technologies work increases their self esteem and their belief in their abilities.
