No, in fact most students start with little or no knowledge of robotics. We recommend having your child attend the Free Trial class as it’s helpful in determining where in the program your child should start. Some students start at Level 100 of a Program while others may start further along at Level 300, depending on their level of knowledge and aptitude. Either way we ensure your child gets the attention they need to develop the experience needed to get the most out of the program.
We want to help parents provide the best opportunity for their kids and we know registering more than 1 child at a time can be expensive. Here is what we offer when multiple children are registered concurrently:
- 1st child: full price
- 2nd child registered concurrently: 10% off second child
- 3rd child registered concurrently: 10% off third child
- If you have more than 3 give us a call!!
When registering multiple children please give us a call or stop in to help ensure you get the appropriate discounts
We can accommodate a change to another class if there is availability.
The cost of each Regular Class is: $330, Summer Camps are $380 per week, and PA/Day Camps are: $75. Taxes are extra.
A typical regular class size is 5-6 students with a maximum of 6.
Camps are typically around 6-8 students with a maximum of 8.
We try to maintain a 1 teacher to 6 student ratio and often have a helper roaming between classes.
No, we take care of all the robots and other supplies needed for the program. Robot platforms are expensive often costing $300-$650 each and students get exposure to multiple platforms as they progress through the program. Building and programming robots are only part of the experience that students get and we aim to keep them engaged and motivated to progress by creating an environment where they take on challenges and apply their learning to solve problems.
Regular classes are 60 minutes, which is about the amount of time that a child can remain focused on single subject. Each class starts with an overview of the session including the challenge/problem to be solved, which is followed by the hands-on part of the class which is approximately 45-50 min.
Camps are longer in duration by design but similar principles apply where students are exposed to a variety of activates to maintain their focus and eagerness to learn and participate. With day camps there is typically 4 hours of hands-on robotic activity.
We have multiple ways to register. You may register online if you know which course to register your child and spaces are available. Click HERE or visit the Register Now! Section to view available courses and register.
Or, if you prefer, just drop in and register in-person, especially if you have questions about the program or specific course.
You may also register your child for the Free Trial online or in-person as well.
Yes – we encourage attending a Free Trial to determine their level of interest in attending a Regular program or even a Camp. Free Trials often help us determine where best to pace your child in the Program.
Life happens and we understand families are busy! We allow 1 make-up class per registered course.
Make-up classes are held weekly – call to schedule. Please let us know in advance if your child plans to attend a make-up class so we can manage class numbers.
We accept Mastercard, Visa, AMEX, Debit (in store), and Cash/Cheque (in store)
We are located in the plaza at 2300 John Street, Unit #20, in Thornhill, which is on the North-East corner of Leslie and John Street.
Monday to Thursday we are open from 3:30 pm – 8 pm, and are open on Saturday from 9 – 4 pm and Sunday from 9 – 3 pm.
As a parent of 3 kids myself, I understand the importance of finding a learning center that creates a safe and optimal environment for your kids to learn and thrive! We ensure each child gets individual attention and aim to strike a balance between helping kids develop both hard and soft skills. Hard skills are the skills related to programming, robotic concepts, etc. The softer skills, which are equally important and are foundational building blocks to lifelong success, include communication, problem solving, critical thinking, collaboration, etc.
Check out the section on Robotic Competitions for more details.
Grouping students by age helps in better classroom and student management. Students of a similar age often learn and grow at similar rates.
In the event that severe weather causes a class to be canceled we’ll arrange for a make-up class.
