Sylvan’s Coding for Kids courses in Illinois are perfect for children who are creative, imaginative and 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. Our courses are delivered in a kid-friendly format, which means your child can enjoy highly visual and interactive activities and cool projects he or she will be psyched to work on each week.

Help Your Child Level Up

Our Coding for Kids courses in Illinois 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.

Build Confidence While Building Games!

Coding for Kids boosts confidence! 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. There are also wrap-up activities at the end of each session, which helps students consolidate the skills they've picked up in class. 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.
