Where kids love learning
Live, small group, virtual coding project classes for kids ages 8-12
Motivating curious kids
All kids have something they are passionate about, and we know that learning happens best by doing. We leverage kids’ curiosities to build motivation for learning with awesome projects so all kids can unlock their potential.

Mindojoy Open Sessions
You can attend any or as many as these you like. If you miss class or are wanting some more time to practice your coding skills these are the session you can join. You can join using the Zoom link below.
Hello from OfferZen 👋
Offerzen loves working with Mindjoy because like us, they are committed to supporting people to unlock their potential, and believe coding is a great way to do this!
Grown-ups can learn A LOT from how kids learn (coding). OZ wants to explore more about how we learn and share these insights with our developer community.
To do this, we’re sharing the love and sponsoring 30 slots for OZ community members to send their kids to learn how to learn with Mindjoy and to share some of their insights with us.
We hope you have hard fun 😉
💻 Let's Get Set Up
Setup your PC/Laptop or Tablet with Keyboard in a nice quiet place
Ensure you have headphones (this is super helpful to support focus + enable coaches to support kids so parents don't need to, trust us 😉)
👾 Connect on Replit
Check your email for a confirmation email from Replit & confirm your account (we have created your child's account)
Keep an eye out for an email from firstname.lastname@example.org to see your Replit username + password
Login to Replit and join @TeamMindjoy_Charlie by following this link
Kids should watch the video above to complete the onboarding project (please DO NOT do the project on your kids' behalf, it defeats the purpose of allowing them the opportunity to get a feel for coding on Replit.).
Join us for our onboarding sessions and a coach will get your kid set up if you want support getting setup!
🏄 Join our onboarding
📹 Get familiar with Zoom
Mindjoy classes are hosted on Zoom, so practicing to find the share screen button and typing in the chat is super useful!
💥Boom! You’re now all set up!
💥 Hard fun
Struggle is not a bad thing. In fact if things are too easy we don’t actually learn. Hard fun is just the right amount of challenge that you can manage and still enjoy it. We believe kids should develop their confidence in their own capacity to solve problems.
🧠 Growth Mindset
At Mindjoy everyone is constantly learning- we think that having growth mindset is a super power. What this means is we believe in making mistakes and we aren’t afraid to fail. We support each other when we’re stuck and we encourage our peers to persevere through challenge. We ask for support and we learn from each other. We don't let past failures or successes stop us from taking future bold action and achieving our goals.
Sawubona is the Zulu word for hello. It is a greeting with powerful intention behind the word because Sawubona literally means “I see you and by seeing you I bring you into being.” Everyone at Mindjoy strives to cultivate respect for the self, respect for others and respect for the projects we work on. What this means is showing up as a team player and treating others the way you wish to treated.
🎙 Student voice
We encourage students to think for themselves and create opportunity for discussion and for kids to share their thoughts and opinions. We all see things a different way and therefore encourage inquiry, discussion and discourse to develop student voice and wonder
