Students should enroll in advance, before each term starts, in order to ensure their place.

Though it is recommended to enroll before the start of the term, it is possible to apply during the term. In case a student enrolls later after the term starts, the student is provided with one or two review lessons to catch up what he/she missed.

Tinker Education classes are provided to students by level on the basis of its curriculum. Once enrolled, a new student should take a pre-assessment.

Computer programming in early childhood education helps students to develop their reading, writing and numeracy skills by creating animations. Students learn foundational knowledge structures such as patterns and sequencing in math as well as narrative structure in literacy.
