Coding Classes Made Just For Kids

Our elementary school coding program provides a full curriculum of online coding classes for kids ages 8-10. We teach a structured and progressive curriculum, but keep it fun and engaging with a game based approach to learning. Kids start coding with block based programming in Scratch and advance to text-based languages like HTML/CSS and JavaScript.

The CodeWizardsHQ Advantage

Our reviews speak for themselves.

Coding Curriculum for Elementary School

Coding for elementary school kids starts with block programming in Scratch. These classes focus on helping younger kids problem solve and strategize like a programmer before advancing to text based coding including HTML/CSS, JavaScript, and Python. They’ll explore a multitude of subjects ranging from basic computer science concepts, to animation, to decision making. By the end of the elementary school coding program, students will be able to go from playing games to coding games themselves.

Questions? We Are Here to Help.

Easy answers to some common questions.

What technology do we need?

You need a computer with a microphone and a speaker, a browser (Google Chrome) and a good internet connection.

Chromebooks and iPads are not compatible with our platform.

See full details on What Technology is Needed for Class.

What course should I start with in elementary school?

The first course is Animation and Games with Scratch in the core track. Upon successful completion of the first course, students progress through our structured and progressive curriculum in the order that they are listed on the curriculum page. See the placement testing page if your student has significant coding experience and would like to start at a higher level in the core track.

I have a 10 year old, which program should I enroll?

Most 8-10 year old students should start with the Animation and Games with Scratch in the core track. If you’re 10, you may choose the middle school core track if you are confident about text-based programming and your typing speed is 25 wpm with 90% accuracy. After you complete the online enrollment, take a typing test then email a screenshot of your results to [email protected] to be placed in the middle school core track.

My child already knows Scratch. What do I do?

If your child has good prior coding experience in Scratch, then take a placement exam to skip to the next course in the core track.

We highly recommend that you review the full course curriculum and feel confident about knowing that material before taking the placement exam.
