Hatch teaches coding to prepare your kids for the digital future. Part of preparing them for that future is also helping them start and build their digital portfolios which is comprised of all of their best projects and showcases. With a digital portfolio, Hatch students can see how well they’ve progressed with coding, reminisce on their favorite projects, and most importantly use it for future job applications. We’re proud to say that Hatch Canada has helped our students build over 12,000 Digital Portfolios to date, containing more than 80,000 projects and 2,000 showcase projects.
Technology hasn’t just changed, it’s changed the world. So many of the things we interact with day to day depend on it and are driven by it. That’s why at Hatch Canada we encourage the youngest members of the community to embrace it - to learn to code. Coding may just be the language of the future, and speaking that language might enhance your career options.
The Coder’s Code is by coders, for coders. A reminder that a successful coder learns, takes risks and most importantly has fun.

Parents Jonathan and Claudia share their take on Hatch, engaged learning and the importance of recognizing the less obvious skills that after-school programs, camps and weekend programs can bring to children. With three kids, two of whom have joined us at Hatch, these parents can teach us a lot!
