Building Games — and Confidence!
Coding for Kids boosts confidence! There are clear goals and outcomes for every class, so your child will be excited and proud to share his or her progress each week. There are also wrap-up activities to finish each session, which helps your son or daughter reinforce the new skills he or she has discovered. On top of that, you will get a link to your child’s weekly programming project, so you can see all the exciting things he or she is up to and share his or her wonderful work with family and friends.
