Let’s be honest mamas, as much as technology can confuse us (“zoom, iPhone, zoom!”), it really is what the world is all about. Getting the little ones learning about all that (techno) jazz will definitely mean they are taking the right steps forward in a safe way. The Coding Circle is a fab, fun professional coding academy that offers four different courses for children from the ages of 7 to 11 – focusing on engaging them throughout the early stages of programming. These classes unravel the universal language of coding and find something that your kiddo already enjoys (from playing a game to building a project of their own). And here comes the best bit: they’re offering 10% off for all you Sassy Mamas, (just phone, e-mail, or register online with the code: “sassymamadubai”) valid until Wednesday, 17 February. So what are waiting for? Time to book!
