With Kids Coder Club your children will learn to code games, animations, interactive stories and art. They will learn fundamental programming concepts while having fun and making friends. Our goal is to give our students 21st-century skills. We provide your children with the building blocks they need for their future. Our Coding for Kids classes are designed for ages 7 to 18. We introduce your children to coding platforms and best practices. All our students undergo Cyber Safety training. Presently we run “Live Online” computing and coding classes and will resume physical classes in Wexford Town, Enniscorthy and New Ross, Gorey and also have associate clubs throughout Ireland when we get a handle on Covid. We also run Halloween, Easter and Summer Camps.
