Sheri Allain (Mom & Chief Lizard)

Hi! 👋 I’m Sheri! 

I’m a mom, community volunteer and founder of Codezilla Kids. 

When my kids were little, I constantly read books and articles on “how to help your child succeed” and “how to futureproof your child”.

Many media and job reports said the same thing: technology is the gateway to a better future.

Since I didn’t like the coding school options available at the time, and coming from a family of passionate teachers and determined entrepreneurs, I decided to create my own coding school.

Fortunately, teachers, principals and parents have embraced Codezilla’s mission of (Safe) Educational Fun.

Our business values are:

  1. Educating children with skills that give them a head start in life
  2. Providing good, well paid jobs to young people
  3. Supporting our local schools and community via fair prices, free donations  and regular fundraising

Thank you for welcoming Codezilla into your schools and entrusting us with your children! It’s a pleasure and a privilege! 💚

Teacher-endorsed. Kid-loved. Mom-run since 2017.

What is Coding?

Meet our Team

Ashley

I studied Child and Youth Studies at Brock University. I've always loved working with children and have done so for many years. My first experience came from working at a residential summer camp for over 12 years! Most recently, I worked in the education sector as an Educational Assistant for over 6 years. Working in the education sector I have been able to experience first hand the positive benefits STEM and coding have on children. STEM and coding principles are derived from the Ontario math curriculum but they give children a more engaging (less textbook) way of learning. In my free time, I love to enjoy the great outdoors by going for hikes and for walks with my dog Charlie.
