Our First Step programme is specially designed for children aged 6-8. The course will help your child acquire computer skills and apply them in life!


Children's First Step programming courses are designed for the very young. Children will learn how to use the computer not only as a tool for fun and watching cartoons, but also for creativity and solving various tasks in life. These are essential skills in today's digitised world.



We have been age-appropriate and have adapted the course to the intellectual and mental development level of younger pupils.



In creating the zero-based programming course for children, we have been guided by the following principles:



Accessibility - difficult moments are taught in a game format with illustrative examples;
Systemic - knowledge is acquired and formed into a system with each month and course of study.
Usefulness - children are able to apply acquired IT knowledge in their further education, everyday life and professional life;
Interest - interactive tasks and working atmosphere in class arouse curiosity and natural thirst for knowledge;
Effectiveness - the ultimate goal of each lesson is a concrete result;
Practical application - children not only hear the theory but also solve problems on their own, so they immediately understand where and how to apply new knowledge.


If your child is fascinated by computers and technology from an early age, then you've come to the right place. We teach your child how to understand technology, and help them do it properly and profitably!
