How is this of any use to my child?

This question is common. Why should my child learn to code?  If your child learns to code, and they stick with it throughout school and high school, they could be one of the UK’s top earners, not even a decade after they leave school. Maybe you’re not so money motivated, perhaps happiness. Your child will have the opportunity to socialize with like-minded children in their age bracket while learning a valuable skill with our Weekly Computing Classes for 6 to 9 and 9 to 14 year-olds in Glasgow.

Note: Payments are refundable if required for up to one week before the beginning of the Block. Once classes have started payments will not be refundable. Payments will only be taken after satisfaction from the free trial class.
