CodeRidgefield Debuts In Connecticut Teaching Essential Coding Skills To Kids
A STEM tutoring space for kids 7-14, opens its doors at 105 Danbury Rd in Ridgefield, CT.
The secret is out, coding is becoming all too important to your child’s learning. Long term, a core understanding of programming will help people enter the ever-changing workforce in a variety of fields. Short term, coding helps children become confident problem solvers and better students. CodeRidgefield addresses this need for a curriculum that can turn the absolute novice into a master coder.
Gone are scheduled classes that if missed, will lead to your child playing catch-up. CodeRidgefield has a flexible curriculum. Parents can drop off when it’s convenient, kids pick up where they left off. Once a month, once a week, a few times a week… the schedule is flexible and convenient.
“We’re so excited for CodeRidgefield to open its doors – my children love gaming and coding, I’m looking forward to a new space with a flexible schedule that allows me to drop them off for a valuable learning experience while I do my grocery shopping,” said Holly McClellan mother of Casey. “We’ve been friends with the Flemings for 8 years and love that they’re bringing this essential program to our community.”
