CompuChild® of Lexington, KY

The CompuChild program is a leader in computer education and training for preschool age children. The program is designed to develop and enhance the child's computer skills. Through the use of educational software each child is taught language, letter & number recognition, memory awareness, logic and hand-eye coordination. Initially, the children learn the names of the hardware parts, how to operate the CPU, the mouse and the keyboard. Having and showing respect for the computer is a very important part of our program. The children learn how to load, begin and exit a program. Each week the children focus on developing skills relating to the Microsoft Word program. This process is reviewed on an ongoing basis.
