With a tutor-to-child ratio of 1:6, each child completes on their coding challenges in their own time, and at their own pace – and always with a tutor on hand to provide support.
The fun nature of our courses enables children to learn instinctively, and at a pace they are comfortable with. Whilst we provide the environment for learning and remain on-hand for support, once guidance is provided, the children take ownership of the code they create, and they love it.
At the end of coding sessions, it is not uncommon to hear children asking for extra time because they want to continue working on their coding challenges!
Sessions for each course are held once a week, and children registered on a course will be expected to attend on a weekly basis, on the day and at the time chosen at the time of course registration.
For a nominal fee, we offer taster sessions for any child who would like to try things out before committing to the rest of the term.
During the Taster Session, we will evaluate the child’s ability with a view to making a recommendation regarding which course they might want to consider. Of course, if the child (or parent) has their own views on what course they want to attend, we will do our best to accommodate or suggest a path towards being able to eventually take the preferred course.

Starting After Term Has Begun
With Spark4Kids, there is no such thing as a late start – your child can start with us any week during the term.
Due to the way our courses are structured, a child can start with us any week during the term, subject to spaces being available. Our courses enable children to learn at their own pace, and this means your child can join after the term has started without losing out on any topics.
The earlier you book your child on a course though, the more likely you are to obtain a space.
Pro Rata Term Fees
Children who register after the start of the term (or after a Taster Session) will have their fees calculated on a pro rata basis. The fee is dependent on each child’s individual start date, and will be automatically calculated during the booking process.
All of our online tutors are DBS-checked, and our website as well as virtual LIVE! classrooms have high levels of security built-in, using standard security protocols to secure yours and our data.
Online sessions are also monitored continuously, and our online tutors will not tolerate bullying, bad language or inappropriate questions, conversations or content.
