Sylvan’s Coding for Kids courses in the Springfield region make computer programming more fun than ever before! We provide practical programs that feature innovative, kid-friendly technology, which helps kids develop vital technical and creative skills they can put to use now and in the future. 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 appreciate our game design classes because they're engaging, interactive and motivating. 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. Every session finishes with a wrap-up task that reinforces learning outcomes and helps every student leave with a sense of satisfaction. 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 Blast:

  • 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!
