Computer programming is a blast with Sylvan’s Coding for Kids courses in the Grand Rapids, Kalamazoo and Battle Creek region! 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. 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?!).

The Fun Starts Now

Interaction, engagement and motivation are the name of the game with our game design courses. 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. 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. 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.

Your Child Will Have a Fantastic Time:

  • Learning to use cutting-edge Tynker™ technology to design characters, animations, sounds and special effects 
  • Creating storylines and continuously working towards building a video game that he or she can play with friends! 
  • Developing in-demand skills, such as problem solving, logic, physics and more 
  • Collaborating with classmates and making life-long friendships!
