Computer programming is a blast with Sylvan’s Coding for Kids courses in the Tyler and Longview region! We use innovative, interactive technology and practical sessions to help kids gain the technical and creative skills they need to excel in school and beyond. You'll see your child thrive and feel a sense of accomplishment as he or she finds out how to design, code and animate a video game that can be shared and played with friends afterwards.

The Fun Starts Now

Kids and parents alike know that our game design courses come complete with plenty of interaction, engagement and motivation. Not only will your child pick up crucial 21st century skills, but he or she will also experience the confidence boost that comes with completing tasks and goals every 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.

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!
