Sylvan’s Coding for Kids courses in Connecticut are tailored for kids who love to be creative and imaginative — and who love playing with technology! These interactive courses help elementary and middle school kids have fun, get motivated and gain life-long skills as they create their very own video games. Our kid-friendly format allows children to experience visual, interactive tasks and activities that offer new and exciting challenges each and every week.

Modern Skills for Modern Kids

Our Coding for Kids courses in Connecticut aren’t only a lot of fun: they’re also an effective way for your child to start developing crucial skills for the 21st century. In fact, by emphasizing sought-after skills in STEM (science, technology, engineering and math), we prepare students to succeed in an increasingly digital world. Your child will be developing important programming and coding skills as he or she has a blast creating digital animations and video games.

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. On top of that, you will get a link to your child’s weekly programming project, so you can see all the exciting things he or she is up to and share his or her wonderful work with family and friends.

  • 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
