Who are we?
At our centers, kids learn to code using a game-based curriculum in a fun, safe, and inspiring learning environment. Our curriculum focuses on teaching kids to code, but the goal is to teach them how to think and solve problems. We do this by engaging with the children at their level, on a topic that they enjoy and can stay engaged with over a three/four-year period: video game development. Our students are 5-14 years old. Different programs serve the different age groups.

Our students are called “ninjas” and our teachers are "Senseis”. Ninjas and Senseis work in our “dojo” to create games from the kids’ imaginations as well as fix problems that we present to them to teach a particular topic. To the ninjas, nothing is academic,
because everything at Code Ninjas is designed to engage children in a fun way. We believe playing is the very best way to learn something for a lifetime. We stress teamwork, collaborations, and effective communication throughout the entire process. Kids find
Code Ninjas to be a place to feel comfortable with other kids like them and call Code Ninjas their second home.

Code Ninjas is passionate about Kids, Technology and Education. We have six open centers in the Kansas City area.

Approximately 25 hours per week: Typically 3:00PM - 8PM Monday through Thursday and 12PM-5PM Sundays. Weekday and weekend hours will be required. Physical presence at the center is required during center open hours
