ABOUT US

World of Minecraft is the first of its kind! It's an exciting new community where Minecraft enthusiasts can come together to learn, create, build and play. And on top of this, we are already being recognised as a leader in education by WINNING the 2023 Highly Commended Award for Disability Inclusion, WINNING the 2022 Local Business Awards in Educational Services as well as a FINALIST in numerous categories by 2023, 2022 and 2021 Local Business Awards, Small Business Champion Awards, Small Business Women's Champion Awards, Western Sydney Women's Awards, and by the Australian Ladies in Business Initiative Awards.

What makes us so amazing? We are real teachers who can excite children into learning without them even realising it. Our World of Minecraft Classroom at Bella Vista is fully immersive (which means that it looks like you have stepped into Minecraft) enhancing your child's senses and learning experience. We support the learning of children with all ability levels and those with disability. In addition to learning how to code, students learn to be creative, use critical thinking skills, develop soft skills, and learn how to collaborate using gamification. Our students return every term (or every year to each camp) and the feedback we receive from parents is just sensational!

WHY MINECRAFT?

Minecraft plays a critical role in a child's learning. Within Australia, Minecraft plays a critical role in students achieving learning outcomes as set in the Australian Curriculum. This is achieved, not only via Minecraft Education, but all Minecraft versions as they permit students to learn how to code using block-based coding, python and JavaScipt. Additionally, Minecraft helps children learn problem-solving techniques, learn how to read and write as well as help them solve math problems. 

Minecraft teaches children how to manage resources, the benefits of teamwork, and learn about history and geography. Most importantly, Minecraft can help to improve a child’s confidence and can improve a child’s creativity and imagination.

Noelene has created endless resources and training modules for teachers in Australia and New Zealand to effectively implement Minecraft in their teaching programs.

All of the programs that are run by World of Minecraft are unique as they are developed by a Microsoft appointed Global Minecraft Mentor (Noelene Callaghan). Whilst our programs are designed to help students learn to code and develop their creativity skills, building friendships and having fun is the premise of all classes! All staff are double vaccinated and contain a current working with children's check (we are all in fact teachers). We also cater for students with special needs and make sure that their experience with us is just as amazing as everyone else's!

MINECRAFT CLUB

At Minecraft Club, students will learn how to code, craft, and build using Minecraft as well as develop gamification skills that are vital in the traditional classroom and to new emerging jobs. We focus on collaboration and encouraging our students to work with like-minded students. We also help students develop their literacy and numeracy skills through the way our program is developed.​

The same program is delivered Face-to-Face as well as Online via Zoom. All students need is a device (anything portable like an iPad, laptop, switch, phone, tablet) with any version of Minecraft and we will do the rest. (We have wifi for our Face-to-Face classes). Our programs are best suited for children aged 5-12 and we cater to children with special needs! Our classes run for 1 hour throughout the school term (typically 10 weeks). All activities are designed to include code (students learn 1 line of code a week that they immediately put to use), crafting and collaboration that caters to all ability levels and needs. Collaborative and individual worlds are available for you to experience.

Owned and operated by a Certified Global Minecraft Mentor, you will receive the best experience in Minecraft and learn how to build, craft, code, challenge and computate algorithms as seen in STEM and other subjects.

Creative Kids Vouchers are accepted for Face-to-Face classes. All of our Online classes are recorded and shared via YouTube and Facebook.
