Both of my kids, Romi and Tal, were enjoying the lessons at Kiddy School. They gave the kids knowledge as well as keeping classes fun (they both said it was their favorite lessons!) As a software engineer myself, I really appreciate what they did. Learning at Kiddy School made a big impact in our children' lives, and we just want to say thank you from behalf of my whole family!

I love the format of a small group (up to 3 kids). Each child is getting enough attention and has a chance to work with other kids at the same time. One student's progress motivates another student. So this option is the best combination of price and quality for us!

Once my son knew how to create a hero and a game he just fell in love with programming at once! After each reward and Kiddy School gifts, he became very motivated and excited. At Kiddy School, they know how to find the right approach to every child.
I really like the program! Ellie is not into coding, but the minute the lesson starts she is fine and almost enjoys it. So I would rate the program as 10! Thank you for another gift you sent for Ellie - she really likes it (and do I).
My son studied at Kiddy School during the summer break and just got so excited with a Scratch program. He is going to discover other programming languages like Scratch now. I'm so thankful to this school for sparking my child's interest in IT.
We have started to study at Kiddy Coders 1.5 years ago and my son is getting even more interested. He started from the Beginner level of these online coding courses for kids and now he learns how to create websites. For my son, who couldn't concentrate on one thing for more than 15 min before - taking 90-min coding lessons now seems unbelievable!
We had a fantastic experience and it feels quite proud to have my kids accomplish so much. My son's stint with Kiddy School has been instrumental in driving his confidence and interest in IT.
