FAQ

What does TGS offer my child?

The GO TO place for tech enthusiasts on Long Island, we offer after school classes designed to teach your child real-world #STEM skills in an environment that is both fun and social.  Take a look at the classes we’re currently offering and feel free to call or email us with any questions you may have at (516) 364-1800 or info@tgscoders.com

We also offer:

  • Fun, engaging birthday parties your child and their friends will love;
  • Summer Camp and School Break (Holidays, Spring Break, February Break) programs to give your child a fun and productive week;
  • Friday- and Saturday- night drop off activities give parents the night off while providing a safe, fun and relaxing night out for your child!

What ages does TGS cater to?

We offer classes and tech enthusiasts in grades K – 12.   Children are separated into like-minded groups so that their time with us both expands their technology skills and their social circle.

How do I know what program is right for my child?

If you look at our Classes page, you’ll see that our classes are color coded into approximate age ranges.  However, these age suggestions are flexible and we make exceptions to give each child the best possible experience for their particular skill level. Of course, we are always available to answer any questions you have and would enjoy the opportunity to help you find the right place for your child to start with TGS.

What is actually in the space?

TGS is a technology-enthusiast’s DREAM space.  Laptops.  Gaming Consoles (PS4, xBox, Gaming desktops).  Virtual reality stations.  Robotics.  It’s all here, housed in a very sage and comfortable place for your child to learn or just come play.  Soon, we’ll be adding 3d printers and laser cutters to the mix.  But don’t tell the kids yet…. we want it to be a surprise!

Who are your staff?

Our staff is comprised of certified teachers and technology enthusiasts.   All have gone through a background check and most join our team with experience working with children.  Luckily, in the heart of Long Island we have access to incredibly talented resources and we hire ONLY the best!

Where are you located?

In Syosset, NY, we are at 180 Michael Drive right off Jericho Turnpike.  You’re welcome to drop in and look around during our open hours or call us to schedule a personal tour of the space. We’d love to show you around.  (Please drive around the back of the building for easy access to our space.  You can park and enter right there!)

Will my child be able to continue to take classes at TGS after they have taken the ones available now?

YES, like our students, our curriculum is always evolving, growing and taking new ground.  We’re here for the long haul and are currently developing classes that will allow your child to enjoy TGS from K through 12th grade!

If my child misses a class, is there a way to make it up?

We understand things come up and classes get missed.  If this happens, do not worry.  At The Gaming Studio, we don’t want any of our students to fall behind.  That’s why our enthusiastic staff will be available 30 minutes prior to each class start time (upon appointment) to meet with your child and catch them up before the other students arrive.
