Blast Into Bigger Fun With Coding for Kids

Looking for one of the hottest after school programs in the Chicago area? You’ve got it with Coding for Kids, for elementary and middle-schoolers that teach computer programming skills through interactive and exciting projects. These fun classes are perfect for kids who have great imaginations, like figuring out how things work or simply love technology.

In Coding for Kids, your son or daughter will have a blast creating video games and animated stories and bringing their imaginations to life. You don’t even have to mention all the cool skills he or she is learning along the way: basic coding and programming, problem solving, logic, physics and more. (We’ll never tell!)

At Sylvan Learning of Chicago, we offer several Coding for Kids courses for your aspiring programmer, and your child doesn’t need any previous programming experience to start!. It’s a great way to get kids psyched about learning cool STEM skills.

How Coding for Kids works

Typically, kids come to Sylvan of Chicago for one hour each week during the course. Every class has a distinct objective and outcome, so your future computer whiz will work toward a goal and feel a great sense of accomplishment.

During each session, your son or daughter:

  • Learns how to create characters, animations, sounds and special effects using our intuitive, kid-friendly Tynker™ technology.
  • Develops mini-stories and builds the skills to design a final video game that he or she can play with friends.
  • Experiments and troubleshoots on his or her programming project, developing important problem solving, logic and computational skills.
  • Collaborates with other kids to challenge and learn from each other — making friends along the way.

More reasons your child (and you!) will love programming for kids:

  • Cool, interactive projects with highly visual and intuitive activities for kids (there’s no writing line after line of code).
  • A low stress setting in which your child works at his or her own pace with the support and encouragement of a teacher.
  • Our advanced technology platform with complex games, backgrounds and graphics (there’s a serious cool factor!).
  • Academic impact with content that aligns with school curriculum, including Common Core standards.
  • Life-long impact with 21st century skills: problem solving, logic, basic coding and more.
