Learn about our Hatch Story and what our platform offers. (10 min)
All coding classes teach computational logic. Some teach computational thinking. Hatch teaches both of these, plus 3 other skills of being a well-rounded programmer:
These last 3 skills are the ones engineering managers most want when they hire new junior employees. You may or may not be thinking about the job prospects of your child yet (especially if they are under 10), but it’s a good idea to have at least one activity your child is doing that directly translates into skills for the future.
What value will Hatch Coding give to our employees?
Hatch will help boost your corporate culture within the parent community at your company while also offering a valuable learning tool for their kids, so they can effectively work from home during school closures.
What will employees get with the Hatch Platform if we sign them up for Hatch Studio for Companies?
How do I get my company to participate?
Hatch Studio for Companies can be "parent pays" or "company pays". Hatch can set up a "parent pays" custom signup page by connecting with us and making a request. If you want to push forward a company-wide initiative, please have your company rep (usually someone in HR and/or People & Culture) connect with us to get the ball rolling.
What’s the difference between Hatch@Home for individuals and Hatch@Home for companies?
Hatch@Home for companies is a tailored experience to boost the parent employee community at your company, with these additional perks:
How much does it cost to participate?
In the "parent pays" option, all families get 20% off from our standard pricing plans. This is automatically included in your customer signup page. In the "company pays" option, your company rep (usually someone in HR and/or People & Culture) can connect with us and start a discussion regarding price.
Can I sign up as an individual or do I need to be part of a company to join Hatch Studio for Companies?
To receive the 20% discount and get the additional perks for companies, you must sign up through your company.
How do employees qualify to participate in Hatch Studio for Companies?
Employees with kids between the ages of 8-18 are the ideal candidates for participating in Hatch Studio for Companies.
Do employee parents need to know how to code before they can sign their kid up for Hatch Studio for Companies.
Parents do not need a coding background to support their child on the Hatch platform. Our platform will teach and guide their child in their learning. We suggest 30-60 minutes of set up time at the beginning, much like when your child opens up a new toy and then 10 minutes a week, much like when your child has an extracurricular activity, to check-in and see how they are doing. Hatch has a great "How to Start" page which is linked to in various places, including here: https://www.hatchcoding.com/how-to-start
What happens once my company signs up for Hatch Studio for Companies?
What's a Company Throw Down?
If you are having fun with Hatch, we have leaderboards to inspire additional learning. These leaderboards can be company vs. company, so if you have a preferred vendor, a friendly competitor (e.g. Walmart vs. Amazon, McDonald’s vs. Burger King), or just any other company that you know well, Hatch allows you to Throw Down with other organizations.
What about Internal Competition?
If you are having fun with Hatch, you can have internal teams compete against each other, e.g. office vs. office, department vs. department or any other combination you can think of. It’s all in the spirit of inspiring more learning.
