the Superiority of in-person learning
over virtual learning
While virtual learning has its merits, research has shown that in-person learning offers a more effective and holistic educational experience. During the COVID-19 pandemic, many students experienced learning loss due to the limitations of remote education.
According to a McKinsey & Company report, students had fallen behind by an average of five months in math and four months in reading by the end of the 2020-21 academic year. This learning loss highlights the importance of in-person education in fostering academic success.
in person learning allows students to
Benefit from direct communication
Hands-on activities, and real-time collaboration – aspects that are often lacking in virtual learning environments.
These elements contribute to a deeper understanding of coding concepts and enable children to develop essential interpersonal skills, such as teamwork, communication, and empathy.
creating a dynamic learning space
For future innovators
At Code Ninjas, our locations are more than just classrooms; they are dynamic learning spaces where children come together to explore, innovate, and grow.
Our vibrant and welcoming atmosphere inspires curiosity, creativity, and a passion for learning, while our in-person approach ensures that every child receives the support they need to thrive. By prioritizing in-person learning, we're not only enhancing the effectiveness of our coding education program but also cultivating a thriving community of young innovators, poised to make a lasting impact on the world.
the power of group learning
We believe that the most effective and sustained long-term learning happens in-person and in small groups! Studies show that group learning has several benefits, including increased motivation, improved communication skills, enhanced critical thinking, and more efficient learning.

We firmly believe in the power of personalized learning.
Which is why we embrace a self-paced approach in our curriculum. By allowing students to progress at their own speed, we cater to individual needs and learning styles, ensuring that every child can develop their coding skills in a way that best suits them.
Our philosophy of "self-paced, but not self-taught" underscores our commitment to providing personalized support and guidance to our students, while still empowering them to take charge of their learning journey.
the benefits of self-paced learning are numerous.
It allows students to build a strong foundation in coding by giving them the freedom to fully grasp concepts before moving on to more advanced topics.
This approach helps reduce frustration and ensures a deeper understanding of the material. Furthermore, self-paced learning encourages independence, self-discipline, and time management skills, which are essential for success in both academic and professional settings.
in their journey.
Our dedicated Senseis play a vital role in the Code Ninjas experience. These skilled instructors provide one-on-one guidance, mentoring, and encouragement, making sure that every child receives the support they need to overcome challenges and grow in confidence.
Our senseis are readily available to answer questions, clarify concepts, and offer feedback, all while creating a nurturing environment where students can thrive.
coding education experience.
The Code Ninjas approach of "self-paced, but not self-taught" ensures a well-rounded and empowering coding education experience.
By combining the benefits of self-paced learning with the invaluable support of our senseis, we provide a unique and effective learning environment that fosters both personal growth and academic success.
At Code Ninjas, our mission extends beyond vocational training;
we believe that all children should learn how to code because we live in a digital world.
a welcoming environment:
encouraging girls in tech
We recognize the importance of inclusivity and diversity in the tech industry and are committed to creating a welcoming environment for both boys and girls at Code Ninjas. Traditionally, girls have been underrepresented in tech, but we strive to change this narrative by offering equal opportunities for all children to explore and excel in coding education.
the research is in
Research has shown that girls who are exposed to technology at a young age, particularly under 8 years old, demonstrate increased confidence and a sense of belonging in tech classes as they grow older.
By providing early access to coding education in a supportive and inclusive environment, we help break down gender barriers and inspire girls to pursue their interests in technology without hesitation.
inspiring the next generation
At Code Ninjas, we understand the importance of nurturing the talents of all children, regardless of their gender or future career aspirations. By offering a comprehensive and inclusive coding education, we ensure that every child has the opportunity to develop valuable skills, grow in confidence, and make a positive impact on the world.
Code Ninjas has proudly invested millions in the development of IMPACT, our proprietary state-of-the-art learning management system and coding platform, designed to transform the way children learn and engage with technology.
The IMPACT platform combines tailored learning, individual creativity, structured coding concepts, and a global community, offering a comprehensive and immersive coding education experience.
By fostering a strong foundation in Computational Thinking, our program empowers students to become not only proficient users of technology but also creators and innovators who can shape the future in meaningful ways.
In collaboration with Microsoft MakeCode, we have meticulously crafted a cutting-edge curriculum with a strong emphasis on building a foundation in Computational Thinking.
This equips children with essential problem-solving skills that prepare them for a successful future in an increasingly digital world.
Our substantial investment in the IMPACT platform and its accompanying curriculum reflects our commitment to providing the best possible coding education for children.
We are dedicated to nurturing the talents of all children, regardless of their gender or future career aspirations, and are excited to see the remarkable achievements they will accomplish through the use of our groundbreaking learning platform.
2 Individual Creativity
At Code Ninjas, we believe in nurturing children's creativity and self-expression through code. Our IMPACT platform and curriculum encourage students to customize every activity and project they work on, allowing them to truly make their creations their own.
Unlike traditional coding platforms that require exact code matches, our assessment tool focuses on the application of targeted coding concepts. This approach enables each child to create unique projects, such as a platform game or an ice cream shop simulator, while still demonstrating their understanding of the lessons, like using conditional statements correctly.
4 Global Community
IMPACT goes beyond structured learning by offering a sandbox code editor, where students can freely explore and create their own projects. These creations can be shared within our global community of ninjas, fostering a collaborative and inspiring environment.
Students can view, comment on, and remix projects from their peers, allowing them to learn from one another and further develop their coding skills. This global community promotes a sense of belonging and encourages children to embrace the diverse possibilities of the digital world.
