Code Coaching®

Code Coaching® is our core philosophy, and what our school is all about!  We believe that every student is different, and that kids should learn in the way that works best for each child. How? Our Code Coaches® - they're the magic sauce!  Unlike some coding schools, we don't just leave the kids in front of a computer, expecting the software to teach them how to code. Nor do we force all kids to go through the same curriculum or projects, regardless of their skills and interests. Instead, our Code Coaches® customize their lessons for each child, and focus on a 2 on 1 mentee-mentor relationship with our kids so our students can get the focused attention they need.

Code Coaching® works for kids of all ages and skill levels, from novice to advanced. From game development to web apps, Python to Java, or even niche technologies like AI and beyond, our Coaches can help your kids achieve their goals.

Sessions run one or two hours a week (your choice), at the same time every week on a schedule that works for both you and our assigned Coach. Check out our video for more info!

Coding Lessons for Kids in Farmington, CT

Coding takes practice, and we believe getting kids to code consistently throughout the year is the only way they'll really learn to code. theCoderSchool has a staff of hundreds of Code Coaches all around the country, so we know a thing or two about mentoring students in computer science. That's why our after-school coding classes for kids revolve around this relationship, providing a long-term mentor in a Code Coach to teach kids to code, from someone who's an expert coder themselves. Conveniently located west of Hartford, theCoderSchool Farmington serves families from great nearby schools like Miss Porters and Noah Wallace Elementary. Kids with parents from local companies like Aetna, Travelers, and Disney/ESPN are already coding, so let's get to it! If you're looking for a location further east, be sure to check out our Glastonbury location.

Programs at theCoderSchool

Our coding school's flagship after-school program, Code Coaching®, combines a super-small 2:1 teaching ratio with individualized curriculum so kids are able to move at their own pace, doing things that interest them most. While Code Coaching is our premium program, we also offer a more traditional Code Class for those looking for either software-driven or static-curriculum teaching in a larger ratio. And during summer and holiday breaks, we offer Coding Camps. When available, programs are offered in both in-person and virtual formats. Contact us to find out more and get a free trial today.

theCoderSchool System

We're part of a nationwide system of passionate owners in over 50 locations around the country, teaching well over 5,000 students every week with the brainpower of 750+ expert Code Coaches®. We're proud of the impact theCoderSchool has had on communities everywhere since our brand was founded 7 years ago, way back in August of 2014. In short, we know a thing or two about teaching kids to code - so let's get to it!

What Kids Learn

We believe that every student learns in his or her own way, not only in what they want to work on, but how fast and how much. Our Coder Tree® is a visualization of our students' learning options as they grow and a sampling of some of the topics we teach. Find more details about what kids are learning by checking out our Coder Tree®.

Meet Our Owners

Vaishali and Chirayu Shah

Hello and welcome to theCoderSchool Farmington! Chirayu and I met during our undergrad at the University of Connecticut and since then we have accomplished much together, but nothing compares to this. After having kids, we realized the importance of building a strong core foundation for children and starting them early on. We fell in love with the idea of teaching children how to code because of its many benefits. Coding is unique because not only does it teach students to think by applying problem solving, but it drives innovation. Students learn to think logically by applying commands to create anything they can imagine. No matter what field a you decide to work in, coding and computers are all around us!

I started my career twelve years ago, working in healthcare and teaching college students. In all instances of my job function I was always impressed with how much technology has impacted the healthcare and education field. Now we have the opportunity to impact the next generation by not only living with technology, but ideally creating technology as well.

Chirayu has always been fascinated with technology and is always looking for the latest gadget to play with. Working at ESPN as a project manager, he is constantly surrounded by software developers and sees the impact coders have in real life scenarios.

We are excited to bring theCoderSchool to Connecticut and help children learn to code and change the world!You can reach us anytime, vaishali@thecoderschool.com and chirayu@thecoderschool.com
