National Kid’s Coding School Franchise Unveils Affordable Subscription Service
Silicon Valley-headquartered theCoderSchool hopes to bring coding to even more children during pandemic
June 25, 2020 // Franchising.com // Palo Alto, Calif. – theCoderSchool - whose motto is “Learn to code. Change the world.” - is unveiling an affordable subscription service giving parents another option to help keep kids engaged and learning during the pandemic. theCoderSchool’s new AppStream provides a video lesson presented by a Code Coach from one of the brand’s nationwide locations every Tuesday morning.
While theCoderSchool believes the best way to learn to code is with one of their passionate Code Coaches at their locations, they want to provide a variety of ways kids can benefit from coding during the pandemic. AppStream is a great way to expose beginners aged 6-11 to coding basics with video lessons. Each week there is a brand new video with an experienced coder who will guide your kids to create a mini-app on their own.
In addition to AppStream program, theCoderSchool implemented personalized virtual coding lessons at the beginning of the pandemic to ensure the tech leaders of the future weren’t missing a beat, while locations were temporarily closed.
“Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, our students remain our number one priority,” said founder Hansel Lynn. “We know the positive impact learning to code can have on students and families, which is why we were quick to offer AppStream and are permanently keeping virtual coding classes in our business model with the goal of giving kids the opportunity to learn valuable skills while allowing them to create their projects and become self-starters.”
theCoderSchool transformed their business model due to the COVID-19 pandemic to support remote coding lessons and the company is moving forward with opening new locations as they keep up with the demand from parents around the country. A new location in Montgomery, NJ hosted the first virtual grand opening of their coding school June 22, while a new location in Tampa, Florida opened this month with in-person coding opportunities. A new location in Henderson, Nevada is planning to open in July.
As summer draws closer and parts of America reopen, additional locations are planning to add in-person classes and day camps for students too. theCoderSchool is prioritizing safety over everything else and have implemented protocols to protect all campers and employees.
“As we’ve started re-opening locations, we’ve implemented policies based on CDC guidelines, plus extra in-house precautions to keep everyone healthy,” said Lynn. “We are ensuring students maintain a safe distance from each other, are using sanitizing stations, and are mandating our employees wear face masks throughout the premises.”
Founded in 2014 and franchising since 2016, theCoderSchool, a Silicon Valley-based children’s enterprise franchise, provides computer programming lessons to children ages 7 to 18.
