Sylvan’s Coding for Kids courses in the Barrie region make learning computer programming a blast! By providing interactive technology and practical sessions, we equip students with critical technical skills and know-how they can put to use to reach their potential in the classroom and beyond. Your child will feel an amazing sense of accomplishment as he or she learns how to program, design and animate his or her own video game that can be shared and played with friends (talk about cool!).

Big Smiles and Big Leaps Forward

Kids and parents alike appreciate our game design classes because they're engaging, interactive and motivating. Not only will your child develop vital 21st century skills, but he or she will also build confidence by working toward a goal each week. That's why we end each session with a wrap-up activity that helps children consolidate their new knowledge and take away a strong sense of satisfaction. In addition, we provide a link to your child’s programming project, letting you be a part of the exciting progress and share the accomplishment with the whole family.
