From Passion To Mastery

The Renaissance Child offers educational and creative programs for kids aged 6-14. By incorporating holistic teaching for children, we are creating the determined and confident professionals of tomorrow – today.

Our key “inventors” programs incorporate LEGO robotics. Here, children learn to code and engineer while gaining an understanding of gears, axels, motors, and sensors. They also learn the basics of coding, an essential skill in fields such as medicine, space, animation, and more.

STEAM EDUCATION

Our courses use the latest principles in STEAM educational methodology. STEAM merges science, technology, engineering, art and math.
