Frequently Asked

The best age to start learning to program can be as young as 3 years old. This is the best age to expose your child to the basic concepts of computing. When they gradually grow into their teenage years, our coding and game-design projects can then spark creativity, logical thinking, and individuality. As Preface's coding curriculums are tailor-made for each demographic group, it’s never too early or too late for your child to start exploring the beauty of coding.
First things first, coding is satisfying and fun! Our passionate coaches will guide your children through the whole curriculum. Once they get the hang of it, they can enjoy the exhilarating joy of coding their own project and customizing them however they desire. Coding is not just a computer language, children can also learn how to dissect complicated computer codes into separate bits and pieces. This will help develop their logical and critical mindset. This is crucial to a child's development since they can apply this mindset later on in real life. People who can clearly analyze and communicate complex ideas in simple terms tend to be more successful in all walks of life. Programming challenges also help children develop resilience. When kids debug their own code, they develop the ability to bounce back from failure and see failure as a stepping stone to their ultimate success. What’s more important is that coding trains up their technical mindset to prepare for the digital economy and the tech-driven future. By turning from a passive tech consumer to a proactive creator, kids with coding knowledge look at the world in a different way, and who knows, maybe it even opens pathways for their future lucrative careers.
You don’t need any prior coding experience to start learning. We have courses for each experience level, from complete novice to seasoned tinkerer. At Preface, we provide a curriculum that’s just right for your child, by considering their learning goals and preferences. If you already know the fundamentals, you can choose to skip a module by scheduling an assessment and interview with our consultant.
Our instructors are all battle-tested with field and academic experiences. Their background ranges from primary school teachers, software engineers, Ph.D. educators, and even pilots. All of them have to pass our 4-step recruitment process; from video screening, interview, curriculum-based assessment, to finally a live teaching demo. Such a strict process is to ensure that we only select the top 1.5% of instructors, which makes our learning experience the top in the industry. Learn more aboutPreface's difference.
Upon graduating from our coding programs or boot camps, your child will receive a certificate of completion with their name and graduation date on it. Please note that the certificate will be issued upon request.

You’ll attend a Learning Consultation, which showcases the projects your child has done and comments from our instructors. This will be arranged at a later stage after you’ve signed up for a class.

Besides, we use scaffolding to break up learning into chunks. Students will do projects with different difficulties and escalate along with your child's progress so that our instructor can assess and ensure they have a strong understanding of the concepts before moving forward.

Yes, please do. If there’s any concern about bringing your device, feel free to talk to our Learning Support team to work out an arrangement. For ScratchJr courses, please get an iPad or a Tablet. For Scratch, App Inventor, and any other classes, please bring a laptop. Both Mac and Windows work as long as they can connect to the internet.

However, please place your request 48 hours before class if you need assistance for devices, or administration fee is applied.
