Why should kids learn programming?
Kids should learn programming because computer programming for kids offers many benefits. As Apple CEO Tim Cook said, “I think every kid in the world should learn to code. Whether your passion is in science or the arts, it's a way to express yourself.” Programming teaches children important coding skills like loops, conditional statements, and variables. This type of logic not only applies to coding, but also to problem solving in all sorts of areas. Programming also helps kids to build their creativity, project management skills, and confidence. Programming can help children prepare for all sorts of future careers.
Computers power so much of our daily lives, and coding classes help uncover the mechanisms needed for this to happen. The sooner kids get started, the easier it is to learn. In Create & Learn’s coding classes, an expert teacher guides a small group of students through key concepts using a project-based and inquiry-based learning method that helps provide all the context students need to apply their learnings in the future. Classes are small enough so each student gets individual attention and can ask questions. Teachers also get kids excited about what they’re seeing. Free online coding classes provide a unique opportunity for students to build general problem solving skills, creativity, and more, all from the comfort of home, no matter where home is.
How to choose the right coding classes for kids
To choose the right coding classes for kids, consider your child's age, interests, and experience level. If your kid is young or has little to no coding experience, we recommend our free Scratch coding class to start learning how to code. Scratch is a drag-and-drop coding language that is perfect for learning essential computer science principles. If your child is more experienced, they can expand their coding abilities with a free web development class and find out how to make their own amazing website. This class reveals some of the secrets of the Internet and web design. Or for advanced or older students, start with one of the most popular programming languages used in the real-world Python. Check out all of our fun kids computer classes here.

I want to do more. It was so much fun. The teacher was great!
The content is fantastic. My son could never have learned it elsewhere.
I have seen many data science curriculum. This by far is most relevant and relatable to kids.
