Play and Learn? Now You Can!
Confidence is boosted with our Coding for Kids programs! Classes have clear objectives and outcomes, so your child will make steady progress and look forward to sharing his or her achievements every 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.
