All you need to know

Meet BeeBot!

Meet BeeBot, an award-winning little robot that introduces preschoolers to programming concepts, directional skills, math and more. With Beebot, we get to learn about code through tangible programming!

Preschoolers build on their critical thinking, technical understanding and literacy as they get creative programming BeeBot to complete exciting quests!

All while learning the importance of teamwork, communication and collaboration with their peers along the way!

Learn Phonics with Beebot

With Beebot at their side, preschoolers get immersed into an English-speaking environment as they learn to sound out introductory phonics and basic classroom phrases in English.

Beyond language skills, they get to pick up fundamental programming concepts by learning about sequencing and directionals, and apply their new coding superpowers to help Beebot perform quests!

Kids are like sponges – the younger they are, the more they absorb.

The basics of learning a new language are confidence and lots of practice. With preschoolers, it is a good time for them not only to be immersed in an English speaking environment, but also the chance to put what they have learnt immediately into good use.

They will be taught simple English phrases which will be used when learning basic coding concepts. This would reinforce their comprehension while allowing them to practice in the right context.

By being exposed to the workings of technology early, they don’t just develop a new medium for creativity and problem-solving – they also get an early peek under the hood of how digital experiences are designed and engineered.

Oh! The stuff you'll learn

  1. Read and pronounce sounds of English letters & words
  2. Learn programming concepts like sequencing and directionals
  3. Code BeeBot the robot, and bring it to life

Life skills you'll learn

Creative Confidence
Logical Thinking
Problem Solving

Pedagogy

No lectures. No memorisation. No ONE right answer. Like real life, we're all about trying things out yourself, failing, figuring what went wrong & trying again. These are the skills & mindset that will last a lifetime and how we learn in real life. Let's get kids to learn how to learn. Because the kids who learn to learn become curious, inventive, resourceful human beings who solve real world problems to make a meaningful impact.

The happiest hours of your child's week

"I give the thumbs up. The environment is conducive, the trainers are knowledgeable, friendly and approachable. Last but not least, I am impressed by what they had learn over a short span of time."

"Adam enjoyed himself immensely throughout the 5 days camp. He requested to reach class earlier and when he was home, he continued working on his coding projects after dinner. I’ve never seen him so serious about anything before."

"My 8 year old son loved the course and kept raving about how fun it was. I think he’s also proud that he could create a game which is self motivating. Last night Friday before he slept, he said “I wished there is class tomorrow!”
