Premier Computer Education for Your Child 

A favorite part of every Yorkshire Pre-K through 5th-grade student’s week is their computer classes!

Yorkshire’s state-of-the-art MAC lab offers a wide array of computer software applications, including Microsoft Office, various keyboarding programs, learning.com, and grolier.com. Our students have the benefit of being proficient in the MAC and PC world. IPADs are utilized throughout the school as a further enhancement to our computer tools. Additionally, our students benefit from the collaboration between the computer lab and the classroom teachers in project-based learning activities. 

Although young children seem to have been born with instinctive computer savvy, a structured computer curriculum is a vital part of education today. Yorkshire Academy realized many years ago the importance of technology education and strives to stay at the cutting edge. 

Computers and other technology are ingrained in nearly every course of study and real-world job. As such, Yorkshire Academy offers a curriculum that gives elementary students an early start using this technology. We're proud to provide comprehensive computer education for students in the Houston area. In fact, these lessons often tend to be our students' favorite part of the week!

Why Computer Education Is Important

To some, elementary school seems too early to be learning computer skills. However, Yorkshire Academy believes in the numerous benefits of guiding children through proper computer use during their elementary years. Of course, computer education teaches them to use common software applications. But that isn't the only benefit your child will get from computer classes at a young age. Our students enjoy all the following advantages: 

•    Problem Solving Skills: Computer skills go hand in hand with logic. After all, you use logic every day when you troubleshoot computer problems or come up with the perfect search query to get the answer you need. 
•    Exposure to Language: The internet is a crucial language learning tool. Children who can navigate computer programs will have increased exposure to language, thereby increasing their comprehension. 
•    Collaboration: Many computer-related projects require collaborating with peers and instructors. 
•    Self-Confidence: Education of all kinds results in increased self-confidence, and that definitely goes for computer education. When children master a new computer skill, they feel accomplished, and with accomplishment comes a higher sense of self-esteem. 

 

Immersing Students in a Variety of Subjects

Beyond computer education, Yorkshire Academy offers instruction in an array of subjects. Our students have the opportunity to participate in all kinds of enrichment programs and extracurriculars, no matter their grade level. Whether your child is enrolled in our preschool or upper elementary courses, they'll be exposed to the following subjects, among others: 
•    Music
•    Spanish

•    Physical education and health
•    Library skills
•    Social-Emotional Skills
