After-School

When young people are given opportunities to be creative with new technologies the value can be immense. DT Kids Academy supports and encourages young people to explore new technologies in unique and exciting ways, in a safe, challenging learning environment.

Here’s why we believe your child will flourish if they attend DT Kids Academy..

Learners at the centre

Children are encouraged to explore their own passions and interests and to discover tech through creative play.

 

Social not solitary

Our programmes offer multiple opportunities to collaborate and make new friends with people who share similar interests – two heads are often better than one, especially when it comes to debugging code!
