Thank you so much, my son learnt a lot and had a lovely day at camp today. Well done! And Thank you to Josh, for wonderful customer service for your prompt replies to my late messages. Will definitely enroll for the next camps and looking forward to many more.

FAQ – Frequently Asked Questions

Q. Will my child get to take what they make home?

Unfortunately kids can’t take home the robots :(, but for lots of our other workshops they get to take their creations home.

Q. Will food be provided?

For allergy reasons, we ask that you pack your child’s recess or lunch each day.

Q. What ages do you cater for?

We cater for a wide range of ages of kids and teens, depending on the exact workshop and subject of that workshop. Please find a workshop near you and find the ages under “Workshop Details”.

Q. How many kids in a class?/How many teachers/assistants are there?

A: We run workshops for a range of class sizes, from around 7 all the way to more than 60+ kids at special events. However most workshops we run have between 15-25 kids in them and we have between 2-3 teachers/assistants in that class. We don’t have lots of assistants, instead we focus on having better ones, which create a better learning environment overall.

Q. Does my child have to bring in their iPhone/Device?

A: No, we provide all devices to work on in class and then at the end of the day we will email home the link to your child’s creation.

Q. Does my child have to provide a computer?

No, we provide all required computers for almost all workshops – but sometimes we will run a BYOD workshop, but if this is a case it will be specifically mentioned in the workshop.

Q. Can we run private workshops?

Yes, at CodeSpace Education we can run private coding workshops for children, teenagers and adults at your school, workplace, library or organisation. We can sometimes also do private workshops at homes, but please contact us to discuss this further.

Q. Are we registered?

Yes, All of our staff over the age of 18 have the working with children’s check and we have $20 million public liability insurance and all of our staff are trained in risk management procedures & child safety and protection.

Q. Do the kids just sit in front of the computers all day?

No, we take recess and lunch breaks that are taken away from the computers to get some fresh air. We also will sometimes participate in learning activities that are done away from the computers (depends on the workshop).

Q. What if my child is sick on the day?

We understand that you can’t control when your kids get sick, which is why, unlike some of our competitors we will give you a full credit for a future workshop, providing proof is produced. 

Q. Is there a child care rebate available?

We don’t offer any child care rebate available at this current time. Join our VIP Club so you know when it becomes available.
