SPECIAL ONLINE PROGRAMMES

At SCRATCHPAD everything we do is focused on preparing youngsters for a future with endless possibilities and opportunities. They are the masters of their own destiny, but they need to have the correct set of skills and tools to shape their future. In these unprecedented times, it is important that their learning doesn’t stop and they have something creative to do while at home. Our Online Special Programmes are designed to be fun and creative at the same time.

During these programmes we ensure regular breaks mixed with fun learning activities that are designed to enhance children’s logical thinking.

 

Our online class sizes are small so we can focus on the growth of each child and provide that necessary attention. Enrollments to each of these courses are strictly limited, so do not delay.

 

Book now to secure a place for your child!

 

Points to note:

 

  • These special programmes are run online by trained and police vetted instructors
  • Regular short breaks are provided during these online sessions so kids get a chance to stretch and are not in front of the devices for a long time
  • Booking is essential to join these programmes

Children require:

  • Access to a computer with a browser
  • Licensed Minecraft game (PC Java Edition) if you sign up for Minecraft modding
  • Headphones (suggested but not essential)

Children embrace computer coding in school holiday programme with a tech twist

Hi, thanx for following up after the school holiday programme. Asher loved his two day course and we will definitely be interested in another course in the holidays.
