Python is a powerful yet beginner-friendly coding language for kids to learn programming.

Not only can Python classes for kids teach fundamental programming principles, but they also lay a strong foundation for tackling more advanced topics like algorithms, data structures, machine learning, and artificial intelligence.

Python is a popular object-oriented programming language with dynamic semantics. That just means Python can do more with less, making it easy to learn and powerful to use.

Python Classes for Kids, Beginner Friendly

Python Is Beginner-Friendly for Kids

Python is unique in that it’s easy to understand, even for kids with no programming experience. We recommend Python for kids because some languages use a perplexing combination of symbols and abbreviations. Python doesn’t.

Python Classes for Kids, Real Programming

Kids Won’t Outgrow Learning Python

Python is not a graphical programming language, it uses real coding syntax. Purely graphical programming languages, like Scratch, are good for elementary school children, but they’re easy to outgrow. That’s not the case with Python.

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. 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 program.

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. If you’re 10, you may choose the middle school program 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 program.

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.

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

I have a 13 year old, which program should I enroll?

Most students ages 11-13 should start with Intro to Programming with Python. If you’re 13, you can enroll in the high school program if you feel comfortable learning at a slightly faster pace.

What if my child already has some experience in Python?

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

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

What course should I start with in middle school?
