Screen-free, Montessori-inspired Design Thinking, Coding, and Data Literacy Camps & Classes for Young Kids

Get on the Wait List

We're teaching and growing the next generation of computer & data scientists, designers, and tech enthusiasts-- without using a screen.

As parents, we want to prepare our children for the future and give them the confidence that they can succeed. Learning to code and understanding the design process are great ways to open your child's mind to science, technology, engineering, and math.

We believe it's never too early to introduce technology concepts and that children ages 4 to 7 are very receptive to age-appropriate lessons on problem-solving, algorithms, and logic. But we also believe we can defer the use of computers in the child's journey to discovering technology.

Our Montessori-inspired approach guides young children to think like designers, coders, and technologists


Computational Thinking

Tangible and Hands-on

Persistence and Curiosity

At its core, design and coding is all about solving challenges. We teach preschoolers how to approach these challenges.

We provide simple and playful activities on decomposition, pattern-matching, abstraction, and algorithms.

We designed our activities to be developmentally appropriate for preschoolers-- all inspired by Montessori.

More than IQ, we think that teaching children persistence and keeping a curious mind helps children become better future coders and dedsigners

What We Teach




Design Thinking


Data Literacy

This framework is inspired by The Lean Startup and "Design-Build-Test-Learn" model from the U.S. Department of Energy Office of Biological and Environmental Research.

Hello, we're your facilitators!

We're the founders of Pre-Kode and we're here to help your child discover the wonders of coding.

Liza is a Computer Science major (graduated with honors) and completed her Data Science and Analytics masters degree at Ryerson University. She has industry experience over 10 years covering IT security and DevOps.

Regnard is a workshop facilitator, Microsoft-certified developer, and designer with over 15 years experience building web and mobile apps.

We're passionate about sharing what we've learned and mentoring the next generation of tech enthusiasts.

Our Social Purpose

We're strong believers that children, regardless of their background, should be able to discover science, technology, and coding in a fun and engaging way.

That's why we have a 1-for-1 model: for each child that enrols in our classes, we will be offering a spot for another child in a community facing challenges.
