Sylvan’s Coding for Kids courses in the Grand Rapids, Kalamazoo and Battle Creek region make learning computer programming a blast! Using innovative, kid-friendly technology, our hands-on programs equip students with important technical and creative skills they can put to use 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

Kids and parents alike will love our game design courses because they’re interactive, engaging and highly motivating. Your child will not only get to grips with vital 21st century skills; he or she will also become more capable and confident by achieving a set goal each week. That's why we end each session with a wrap-up activity that helps children consolidate their new knowledge and take away a strong sense of satisfaction. In addition, we provide a link to your child’s programming project, letting you be a part of the exciting progress and share the accomplishment with the whole family.

  • Learning the ins and outs of creating creating characters with special effects using intuitive Tynker™ technology

  • Creating unique stories and working towards completing his or her very own video game to share with friends!
