Who We Are

“You have to be burning with “an idea, or a problem, or a wrong that you want to right.” If you’re not passionate enough from the start, you’ll never stick it out”
Steve Jobs, Former CEO and President, Founder of Apple Inc.

Kids Great Minds or KGM, is a dynamic and growing organization passionate and dedicated to teaching kids digital technology. Our goal is to ignite a child’s individual creativity, intellect and interest by providing a variety of computer based courses designed to introduce new concepts and develop core competencies in many of today’s cutting edge technologies such as computer animation, programming, web and blog design, video game development and more. We believe every child is unique and learns differently depending on their individual strengths. We customize the learning experience to tap into a child’s passion for learning and give him or her tools to excel in a safe, relaxed and guided environment. This leads to a higher self-esteem, sense of accomplishment and helps to develop problem solving skills. Click here to learn more about the benefits of healthy screen time.
