Computer programming is a blast with Sylvan’s Coding for Kids courses in the Barrie region! Using innovative, kid-friendly technology, our hands-on programs equip students with important technical and creative skills they can put to use in the classroom and beyond. You'll see your child thrive and feel a sense of accomplishment as he or she finds out how to design, code and animate a video game that can be shared and played with friends afterwards.

Blast into Big Fun with Sylvan

Kids and parents alike appreciate our game design classes because they're engaging, interactive and motivating. Not only will your child pick up crucial 21st century skills, but he or she will also experience the confidence boost that comes with completing tasks and goals every week. Each session has a distinct objective and outcome, and includes a wrap-up activity, so your child will reinforce the skills he or she learned and feel accomplished at the end of each class. Best yet, you will receive a link to your child’s weekly programming project, so you can check out all the amazing things he or she is creating and share his or her accomplishments with the whole family.
