What teachers and parents say about us

Coding helped my class develop their problem solving and critical thinking skills. It also encouraged pair work as they helped each other to try new things and find a solution.

Nodlaig Lowe
3rd & 4th Class Teacher, Prosperous National School, Kildare

My class loved the lessons, the step by step procedures were easy to follow and the images made it easy to correct any mistakes in the code.
