Sylvan’s Coding for Kids courses in the Roanoke and Lynchburg region make computer programming more fun than ever before! By providing interactive technology and practical sessions, we equip students with critical technical skills and know-how they can put to use to reach their potential 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!).

Big Smiles and Big Leaps Forward

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. 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.
