Class sizes vary depending upon location. Regardless of the class size we maintain incredibly strong coaches to students ratio so all kids get the attention and support they need. Class sizes typically range from 20 to 30 children with usually one lead coach and 2-3 assistant coaches (depending on number of students).
Yes, we always ensure that at least 2 coaches are first aid qualified for each program.
It is mandatory that all our coaches have Working With Children Check before starting work at PIEX.

Our program is designed to simulate real life experiences where kids from all ages, genders and cultural/social backgrounds are require to work together. We encourage kids to work with each other and be mindful and considerate.
We as a company are striving to develop a program that does not discriminate gender or age and make the effort to encourage all students, especially ‘weaker kids’, to engage in our activities and to not be afraid to fight stereotypes and show that anything is possible despite their gender and age. We encourage the children to be confident in themselves and to overcome obstacles that they face.
We designed our program activities to stimulate self-directed learning, creative thinking, team work, project design and management, and presentation skills. All our materials and instruction guides are developed by Experts based on STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics) themes which promotes deep learning, inter-disciplinary knowledge and day to day practical application. Similarly, the activities also illustrate to the children the importance of persistence, collaboration, communication and problem solving skills. Children discuss, brain-storm, share and communicate their ideas with one another while working on their projects. The children also cultivate and foster friendship with each other.
