Our courses are designed to educate children while having fun, cultivate logical, creative thinking, and problem solving skills. Solving problems in computer programming promotes children’s self-confidence and their sense of accomplishment!

Programming is a computer language. In this era of Artificial Intelligence, programming has become an indispensable language for people to communicate and create innovations. Because it is a language, younger kids have an absolute advantage in learning than when they are older. The earlier the better. Learning is much easier and quicker at a young age!

Our mission of the school is to teach kids STEM knowledge in a playful way while keeping their natural creativity.

Our STEM Care program is also designed differently: in addition to helping student’s homework, our main focus is the computer courses, Singapore mathematics, and a hands-on Science Lab. Plus we also offer Public speech, Chinese, Crafting, Yoga, Spelling bee, and other courses.

Summer Camp, Coding Classes, and STEM care programs are enrolling now! We welcome parents to come with your children and have your kids try all classes provided! First trial class is always free!
