Sylvan’s Coding for Kids courses in the Columbia and Jefferson City 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. 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?!).

Big Smiles and Big Leaps Forward

Kids and parents alike will love our game design courses because they’re interactive, engaging and highly motivating. Not only will your child develop vital 21st century skills, but he or she will also build confidence by working toward a 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. We will also send you a link to your child’s programming project, so you can be involved in his or her incredible progress and share it with the whole family.
