We teach kids to code
Learning to write computer code is similar to learning a new spoken language. The younger you start, the more likely you are to succeed.
At Spark4Kids, we teach kids the basics of programming, encouraging them to experiment, make mistakes, learn from these experiences, and take ownership of what they do – in their own time, and at their own speed.

Why Computer Coding 4 Kids?
What do Bill Gates of Microsoft, Mark Zuckerberg of Facebook, Jimmy Wales of Wikipedia, and other famous technology founders have in common?
What We Do
At Spark4Kids, we teach children to code in a fun, engaging environment. Our kids learn to code using a variety of child-friendly tools, in their own time, and at a pace they are comfortable with.
We encourage kids to explore and experiment, gently guiding them along the way and helping them understand how computers and technology works.
At Spark4Kids, we teach kids to code.
The Games Design 4 Kids course introduces kids to designing and coding 2D video games for computers, mobile devices, and the web. This course is recommended for children aged 11-14 who have extensive experience with block languages (such as Scratch) and want to branch into creating games for web, mobile and desktop using professional-level tools.
The Python 4 Kids course introduces attendees to a powerful, modern programming language that has a gentle learning curve and features usually found enterprise-level languages. It is used widely in many professional applications. This course is recommended for children aged 11-14 who are ready to progress on to text/keyword-based languages after having programmed “block” based languages (such as Scratch).
The Typing 4 Kids course is for children either looking to take their first steps in learning how to touch-type, or looking to improve on their existing typing skills. Using a gamified approach to learning to type, the challenges start out simple and progressively become more advanced. Using games, levels, badges, stars and leader boards, children learn to type interactively, building up their muscle memory and increasing accuracy and word-speed.
