Computer programming becomes more fun than ever before when you choose Sylvan’s Coding for Kids courses in the Grand Rapids, Kalamazoo and Battle Creek region! 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. There's nothing like seeing your child enjoy a sense of accomplishment after designing, coding and animating a video game that can be shared and played with friends (so cool!).

New Skills, New Achievements

Interaction, engagement and motivation are the name of the game with our game design courses. Not only will your child learn about skills that are vital in the 21st century, but he or she will also gain much more confidence by progressing towards new and exciting goals 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.

Your Child Will Have a Great Time:

  • Creating stories and progressively working towards a final project: a video game that he or she can play with friends! 
  • Learning how to design characters, animations, sounds and special effects using intuitive Tynker™ technology 
  • Developing valuable skills, including problem solving, logic, physics and more 
  • Collaborating with other students and making lasting friendships!
