Sylvan’s Coding for Kids courses in Illinois are tailored for kids who love to be creative and imaginative — and who 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. We provide programs that have kid-friendly formats, which means your child will take on highly interactive challenges, tasks and activities that present new and interesting ideas every week.

Boost Your Child's Skills and Potential

Our Coding for Kids courses in Illinois are all about fun and excitement, but they also help kids gain critical 21st century skills. We focus on important STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) skills that are increasingly needed for success in a growing digital world. So your child won't only have fun making video games and creating digital animations — he or she will also pick up essential coding, programming and problem solving skills along the way.

Play and Learn? Now You Can!

Our Coding for Kids courses boost confidence! Each class has a clear objective and outcome, so your child will work toward a goal and be proud to share his or her accomplishments with you 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. 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.
