Our story begins...
Few years ago, we came across a children coding academy overseas. We thought to ourselves, ‘Ah, a new evolving trend! Maybe our son should learn coding’. We started to find out more about it. At first, we studied the trends, then we compared different syllabus. Just about the same time, one of our friends shared with us about her children’s coding experience. It got us even more excited and we started spending a lot of time researching it. We started talking to different parties about the courses. Finally, we found a curriculum that we ourselves love it! We tested it out with our son who was in lower primary. The more we worked on it, the more we loved it and our son kept asking for more lessons! He even cut down his iPad game time willingly!
One day, we made an important decision! We decided to embark on our journey to share this important knowledge and skills with other children! Therefore, we designed a few different lesson structures that suit the students with busy schedule in Malaysia. We strongly believe that kids should learn to code from young. Hence, we started our computer coding academy for kids and teens in Malaysia.
We are the founders of CodeBeeDo Academy, Lawrence and Jacqueline.
