CA$25 discount will be included in the first invoice and explained in the special invoice field. The CODDY.ca Welcome Bonus is a one-time discount, it can be combined with other discounts, but it is not transferable to third parties.

Trial Class

The CODDY.ca Trial Class is an online coding class through a ZOOM connection with a duration of 45 minutes maximum. To get the parameters for connecting to the CODDY.ca Trial Class, we would ask you to fill out an electronic registration form and provide complete personal data about you and your child. Data in the form marked with an asterisk are required. The provision of incomplete or inaccurate information is the reason for the refusal to provide options for a CODDY.ca Trial Class. Incomplete information includes the absence of your First and Last name, your child’s First and Last name, your email address and phone number, and the absence of one of three parts of the DOB - the day, month or year of birth.

The CODDY.ca Trial Class goal: 

During the CODDY.ca Trial Class, the coding teacher explains the subject in the coding course selected for the Trial Class, and also displays on its screen the basic commands for copying the student who is taking the CODDY.ca Trial Class to the local computer. The purpose of the CODDY.ca Trial Class is to determine the ability of a student to study coding in the real or virtual classroom with other students, as well as to perceive the recommendations and methodology from the coding teacher.

During the CODDY.ca Trial Class, the student is able to do:

- Ask coding teacher about coding, programming lagnuages, applications

- Share thoughts and observations on the topic of coding

- Get the program source code by copying a coding teacher screen demo

During the CODDY.ca Trial Class, the student is not able to do:

- Ask non-coding questions (for example: how much is the coding teacher's salary?)

- Interrupt coding teacher, not giving the opportunity to explain the material

- Refuse to demonstrate screen to verify that the coding teacher has executed the code

The program code for the CODDY.ca Trial Class is the CODDY.ca intellectual property, created by the CODDY.ca authors team. Providing a copy of the trial code for third parties to copy is a violation of the CODDY.ca intellectual rights. The program code is intended only for personal use by students attending the CODDY.ca Trial Class. The CODDY.ca Trial Class is provided to an interested student on a free basis, but a prerequisite is to fill out an electronic CODDY.ca Signup Form. The refusal to fill out the electronic CODDY.ca Signup Form is the reason for the refusal to provide the date and time of the CODDY.ca Trial Class. Since the purpose of the CODDY.ca Trial Class is to test a potential student for the possibility of getting coding classes in a group with other students, the CODDY.ca reserves the right to refuse to enroll a potential student in a group, in written form by email, but without explaining the reason for the refusal. The second opportunity for a CODDY.ca Trial Class is provided after 90 days from the moment of getting the previous Trial Class.

Regular Classes

Regular coding classes at CODDY.ca are group lessons in which students learn coding based on the courses existing in the CODDY.ca. The number of students in the group is limited and the established limit is 6 students maximum in the group. The CODDY.ca reserves the right to revise the limit to a greater or lesser extent, with the obligatory notification of the parents of students in writing via email. Each student in the group is given an equal amount of lesson time by the coding teacher.

To get the parameters for connecting to the CODDY.ca Regular Classes, we would ask you to fill out an electronic registration form and provide complete personal data about you and your child. Data in the form marked with an asterisk are required. The provision of incomplete or inaccurate information is the reason for the refusal to provide options for a CODDY.ca Regular Classes. Incomplete information includes the absence of your First and Last name, your child’s First and Last name, your email address and phone number, and the absence of one of three parts of the DOB - the day, month or year of birth.

Student performance primarily depends on the time the student spends on the implementation of a particular program code, as well as on homework and M.Y.O.G. (Make Your Own Game) session. If the student does not pay enough attention to the study of coding in the classroom, and also does not perform homework and M.Y.O.G. (Make Your Own Game) sessions, the CODDY.ca does not guarantee a high level of knowledge at the end of the coding module. In the event that the student did not give enough practice in the classroom, and also did not perform homework and M.Y.O.G. (Make Your Own Game) sessions to increase the level of knowledge, the CODDY.ca reserves the right to refuse to extend training in the classroom, but after completing one coding module.

By one coding module is meant a package of 8 (eight) coding classes. Coding classes in one module may or may not be combined with a specific topic or coding library. The decision on the inclusion of certain classes with their subjects is made by the CODDY.ca team.

Cost of Education

Based on a coding education system at CODDY.ca, the cost of education depends on the number of month of coding selected for one-time payment. The coding module always starts at the beginning of the calendar month and ends either at the end of the current month or at the very beginning of the next one.

Tuition Fees for One student: 

One Month of Coding for One Student:

The total amount paid for one month of coding for one student is CA$200. The total number of paid coding classes is equals to 8 classes.

Three Month of Coding for One Student:

The total amount paid for three months of coding for one student is CAD $550 per quarter. When paying for three months of coding at once, a discount of CA$50 is provided and the total number of paid coding classes is equals to 24 classes.

Twelve Months of Coding for One Student:

The total amount paid for twelve months of coding for one student is CAD $2000 per annum. When paying twelve months of coding for one student at once, a discount of CA$400 is provided and the total number of paid coding classes is equals to 96 classes.

The tuition fees indicated in these Terms of Service are applied for all new CODDY.ca students who received memberships after February 4, 2021. Existing CODDY.ca students receive a grace period until September 1, 2021. For existing students, the tuition fees specified in the Prior Terms of Service.

CODDY.ca Points System

Each student at CODDY.ca, regardless of the course, has the right to receive points for certain achievements in academic performance. Basically, a Point is a virtual unit of measurement of student success. At CODDY.ca, the one collected Point = CA$1 Canadian Dollar.

Point Types

1. Leader Point - issued to a student at the end of a coding class for active assistance to the coding teacher and other students, as well as for maximum help in explaining the material. The number of possible Leader Points during the coding class is 1 (one) CODDY.ca point.

2. Homework Point - a point for completing homework successfully and completely. Homework often includes several items, and for the high-quality and complete completion of all items of the homework, the student receives 1 (one) CODDY.ca Homework Point. The number of possible CODDY.ca Homework Points during the coding class is equal to the number of students present at the coding class.

3. Kahoot Point - after completing the development of the game, we consolidate our knowledge by playing the coding quiz. For this, the Kahoot platform is used. Also at the end of M.Y.O.G. (Make Your Own Game) Demo we're playing a big Kahoot of twenty questions. For getting the first place in Kahoot, the student receives 1 (one) CODDY.ca Kahoot Point. For the second and subsequent places, receiving points are not provided. The total number of CODDY.ca Kahoot Points during one coding module is 3 (three).

4. M.Y.O.G. Point - at the end of each coding module, students take an M.Y.O.G. (Make Your Own Game) session (consist of two coding classes - Development and Demo). At the time of the M.Y.O.G. Demo, students have virtual voices and give them for those projects that they liked the most. Also, the coding teacher gives his or her vote for the game likes. Each student vote is equals to 1 (one) CODDY.ca Point and each student who received votes from colleagues in the group exchanges them for CODDY.ca points. For example, student Elisa received 4 student votes for her game from other students and exchanges them for 4 (four) CODDY.ca points. Another example - student Brad received 3 student votes from other students for his M.Y.O.G., in this case his winnings will be 3 CODDY.ca Points.

5. Birthday Points - as a gift from CODDY.ca for the student's birthday is the delivery of 5 (five) points, codenamed Birthday Points. To receive Birthday Points, a student must have an active membership, that is, take part in any of the groups of the CODDY.ca school at the time of the birthday celebration.

6. Invite Friend Points - we truly appreciate the recommendations our students make to their friends. Therefore, at the CODDY.ca school there is a tradition to generously thank the students who have recommended our school with a special type of points - called Invite Friend Points. For a successful recommendation, that is, for a recommendation according to which the invited (recommended) student will receive an active membership at the CODDY.ca school, we reward the referring student with Invite Friend Points in the amount of 25 (twenty five) points, credited to the student's points list.

Points Exchange

Points are sent automatically with an Amazon Gift Card three times a year - at the end of December, at the end of April and at the end of August, or when a student is finished participation at CODDY.ca coding classes.

There is also the possibility of additional sending of points in addition to automatic sending when 25 points are reached on the student's account. This opportunity is provided subject to the end of the month of coding. 

A request for sending points should be sent in the form of an email request to the school's email - INFO@CODDY.ca

Refund Policy

The refund policy at CODDY.ca provides an opportunity to stop educational services. In the case of the purchase of one coding module, consisting of 8 coding classes, cancellation of services is possible no later than the beginning of the 5 (fifth) coding class.

In the case of the 5th (fifth) coding class for the student, the return policy is considered closed. A request for a refund must be sent from the registrant's email to the CODDY.ca email address, which is INFO@CODDY.CA, in English, with a request to stop CODDY.ca Service. After receiving an email with a request to make a refund, the CODDY.ca staff will make a count of the coding classes learned and make a refund using the formula:

CA$200 (one month of coding cost) minus CA$100 (cost of four coding classes already learned) = CA$100 (refund amount for unused 4 (four) coding classes). 

The refund option is provided exclusively for new students who have not previously had coding classes. If a student has studied coding at our school for more than one month, the refund option is not available.

Also, the refund option is provided only when paying for the first (one) month of study. In the case of choosing payment for 3 months or for a whole calendar year, the choice is considered deliberate and in this case the refund is not provided, since this violates the planning of the CODDY.ca school for the prepaid period.

The standard time for sending a refund is up to 5 business days.
