Sylvan’s Coding for Kids courses in Ontario are perfect for children who are creative, imaginative and love playing with technology! Elementary and middle school children can take part in fun, interactive courses where they can make new friends, create their own video games and gain skills they can use for life. Our kid-friendly format allows children to experience visual, interactive tasks and activities that offer new and exciting challenges each and every week.
Boost Your Child's Skills and Potential
Fun is the name of the game with our Coding for Kids courses in Ontario, 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.
Play and Learn? Now You Can!
Coding for Kids boosts confidence! Every class is built around a clear objective and outcome, which means your child will progress towards a goal and be excited to talk about his or her achievements each week. Your child will also participate in a wrap-up activity at the end of each session, which will help strengthen the skills he or she learned in class. In addition, we provide a link to your child’s weekly project, allowing you to be a part of the exciting things he or she is doing — and share this wonderful work with friends and family.
During Each Session, Your Child Will:
- Develop critical 21st century skills such as logic, programming and computational competencies
- Learn how to animate, create characters, and add sounds and visual effects using kid-friendly Tynker™ technology
- Create mini-stories and work towards a finished video game that can be played with friends
- Work together with other kids and make new friends!
