With Sylvan's Coding for Kids courses in Nova Scotia, you'll find the perfect experience for your imaginative, technology-loving child! These interactive courses provide a fun and motivating way for elementary and middle school children to learn life-long skills while making new friends and designing their very own video game. Our kid-friendly format allows children to experience visual, interactive tasks and activities that offer new and exciting challenges each and every week.

Help Your Child Level Up

Fun is the name of the game with our Coding for Kids courses in Nova Scotia, but that's not all: they're also the perfect way for your child to learn about and develop vital 21st century skills. In fact, the STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) skills we emphasize are increasingly demanded as the digital world continues to grow. Your child will have a great time making digital animations and creating video games — tasks that include important problem solving, programming and basic coding skills.

Build Games. Build Confidence!

Our Coding for Kids courses boost confidence! Classes have clear objectives and outcomes, so your child will make steady progress and look forward to sharing his or her achievements every 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, we provide a link to your child’s weekly programming project, which allows you to be involved in his or her exciting progress and share it with family and friends.

During Each Session, Your Child Will:

  • Learn how to create animations and add characters, sounds and visual effects using kid-friendly Tynker™ technology 
  • Create mini-stories and a video game that can be played with friends  
  • Gain increasingly important 21st century skills — from programming to logic — while advancing his or her own project 
  • Collaborate with peers and meet new friends!
