Sylvan’s Coding for Kids courses in the Cedar Rapids, Waterloo and Dubuque region make computer programming more fun than ever before! By providing interactive technology and practical sessions, we equip students with critical technical skills and know-how they can put to use to reach their potential in the classroom and beyond. Your child will enjoy a strong sense of achievement as he or she begins to code, program and animate a custom video game that can later be shared and played with friends (how cool is that?!).

Blast into Big Fun with Sylvan

Kids and parents alike know that our game design courses come complete with plenty of interaction, engagement and motivation. Not only will your child pick up crucial 21st century skills, but he or she will also experience the confidence boost that comes with completing tasks and goals every week. In fact, every session has a specific objective and outcome that's reinforced by a wrap-up activity. 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.
