Curriculum Outline

One of the main goals of First Class Coders is to make our students independent thinkers and problems solvers. Problem–solving is important because it enables us to exert control over our environment.

 

The world we live in is changing so quickly and this trend will continue with new innovations arising. It is super important that the children continue practice outside of classes.
