Sylvan’s Coding for Kids courses in the Champaign, Springfield and Decatur region make learning computer programming a blast! We use innovative, interactive technology and practical sessions to help kids gain the technical and creative skills they need to excel in school 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!).

New Skills, New Achievements

Kids and parents alike will love our game design courses because they’re interactive, engaging and highly 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. Each session has a distinct objective and outcome, and includes a wrap-up activity, so your child will reinforce the skills he or she learned and feel accomplished at the end of each class. Best yet, you will receive a link to your child’s weekly programming project, so you can check out all the amazing things he or she is creating and share his or her accomplishments with the whole family.

  • Learning to use cutting-edge Tynker™ technology to design characters, animations, sounds and special effects 
  • Creating storylines and continuously working towards building a video game that he or she can play with friends! 
  • Developing in-demand skills, such as problem solving, logic, physics and more
