6 reasons to start your child’s IT education with Junior programmer
Personalized way of teaching
We have our special way of delivering the material for the children at such a young age: the learning feels like a fun game for them. The students travel to the IT world with ITgenio’s virtual friends ITgenik and Itisha.
Our tutors developed 3 learning modules to help children learn basic coding. These are Scratch Jr, Scratch and Minecraft. Children will be allocated to a course based on the amount of programming experience they have.
Our tutors know how to find the right approach to communication with children and deliver information in a friendly and supportive way.
