At Code Ninjas, kids learn to code by building their very own video games. They gain problem solving, critical thinking, and STEM skills in a fun, safe, and inspiring environment. We offer a variety of programs from camps to flexible coding programs with convenient drop-in hours on weeknights and weekends. Kids have fun, parents see results!
The Our Kids review of Code Ninjas Mississauga (Port Credit)
Code Ninjas was founded in 2016 by David Graham after seeing the kinds of things that his son’s martial arts class could do for the kids who enrolled there. He applied the approach to coding and, today, Code Ninjas is the largest program of its kind in North America and the UK, with hundreds of locations and a wealth of online programs. Size isn’t everything, though here means that the individual locations are personal and close-knit while able to draw on a vast range of resources, including expertise and program development, and administration. The programs are conducted in a belief that coding develops STEM skills—and that coding represents the very core of digital literacy—though has a capacity to develop many others as well, including collaboration, creativity, and confidence, and problem solving. With day sessions, holiday sessions, summer camps, and after-school programs, there are options that appeal to children simply interested in dipping in a toe, to those dedicated to developing higher-order skills.
