As parents, educators and programmers, we know that computers are the backbone of our economy, as well as our children's’ future.

At Codezilla, we give kids a head start to loving & learning one of the most important skills of the 21st Century: computer programming.

So what starts as an introduction, soon becomes second nature, and provides kids with an all-important 'insurance policy' for life.
