Boost Creativity and Confidence
If you have a son or daughter who enjoys playing with technology and finding out how things function, our Coding for Kids programs in Pickering will provide him or her with an exciting and satisfying experience. Your child will progress towards building his or her own video game by completing a mini-assignment and a wrap-up activity each week that will reinforce the concepts learned in class. By the end of the course, your child will feel a sense of accomplishment and have plenty of exciting projects to show for it. We’ll make sure you stay up to date with your child’s progress by sending you a link to his or her weekly programming project.
