What Makes CompuChild Unique?

The pace of innovation has continued to grow at an exponential pace into the 21st century and a multidisciplinary approach to research and innovation is becoming increasingly critical.

CompuChild believes that children are our future and while they need to have a strong understanding of science and technology, that understanding needs to be complemented with effective communication, financial awareness, and ethical decision-making to seed a positive entrepreneurial mindset which will help them shape a better future for our world.

This philosophy has led to our unique emphasis on Entrepreneurial STEAM which is the core focus of our children’s education programs.

CompuChild offers Entrepreneurial STEAM focused supplemental and after-school enrichment programs for children at elementary schools, preschools, daycare centers and other similar venues.

We prepare children to collaborate, communicate, and think creatively to solve problems in an ever-changing environment where their ability to learn constantly is more important that the learning itself. Our interactive and hands-on classes are designed to excite children about learning and to help them develop an entrepreneurial mindset.

"Thanks for putting together an ad hoc training session this weekend. I really benefited from the training on the newly launched animation course. Your instruction manual is quite comprehensive but you walking us through everything made it really easy for me to follow and understand. I am looking forward to offering this exciting course to my students."
Erin Ramlackhan, Franchisee North Fulton, GA

There have been times when I have reached out for help with pitching a new course, altering the structure of the class to suit remote learning and even help with pricing. On every occasion, I have felt like you have taken ownership of my problems with full sincerity and urgency. It’s a great peace of mind to know that someone who has been through these situations is always there to support me."
