theCoderSchool Set to Open in Farmington

Silicon Valley-based children’s coding franchise comes to Connecticut

August 31, 2018 // // Palo Alto, CA - theCoderSchool - recently identified as one of Entrepreneur magazine’s hottest brands - is set for further expansion in the Northeast. The school - which aims to show the next generation of kids how inspiring and exciting technology can be - is set to open its first Connecticut location this fall.

Located at 1051 Farmington Avenue in Farmington, the new school will be owned and operated by husband and wife duo Vaishali and Chirayu Shah. Parents themselves, the couple understands how important after school programs are, and sought out an opportunity that would truly benefit local students.

“We are thrilled to introduce theCoderSchool to Hartford,” said Vaishali. “As the first coding school in Connecticut, we are excited to give back to the community by empowering children to go to new heights mentally and creatively. Through theCoderSchool’s 2-on-1 approach to teaching and project-based, customized curriculum, we look forward to getting kids coding at an early age.”

Chirayu currently works as a project manager at ESPN and Vaishali spent 12 years working in the healthcare field as a radiation therapist, partially at one of Boston’s top hospitals. Most recently, she worked as a college professor and clinical coordinator, where she found her love of teaching. Now, she’s taking that passion of hers to theCoderSchool.

Founded by Hansel Lynn and incubated with the help of his best friend, Wayne Teng, theCoderSchool was built with the desire to provide children aged 7 to 18 years with a welcoming environment to develop computer programming skills. theCoderSchool uses a variety of platforms to teach various coding languages, such as HTML, CSS, Python, Javascript and more. Every Code Coaching lesson is customized with the help of experienced Code Coaches® who use a 2-on-1 approach to teaching.

“As we continue to expand our presence throughout the Northeast, it’s critical to find the right franchise partners who are truly passionate about setting kids up with a positive, life-long relationship with technology and coding,” added Lynn. “This is why we couldn’t be more excited about welcoming Vaishali and Chirayu to theCoderSchool team. They both care deeply about this mission, and we are confident they will bring our level of commitment to kids and parents in Hartford County and show the community just how fun learning to code can be.”

theCoderSchool is also a proud founding member of the International Alliance of Youth Coding Educators. The IAYCE is an alliance of global partners whose goal is to further coding education for youth around the world.
