Our Coding for Kids programs are a real confidence booster! There are clear goals and outcomes for every class, so your child will be excited and proud to share his or her progress each week. Your child will also take part in a wrap-up activity to end each session, which ensures the skills he or she has picked up can be strengthened and reinforced. We provide a link to your child’s weekly programming project too, enabling you to see what kind of exciting progress is being made and share it with friends and family.
