Toronto Tech and Coding Courses for Kids | Alpha Coding

This post is in partnership with Alpha Coding. All thoughts and opinions are our own.

Walking into Alpha Coding this weekend I was instantly intrigued with the bright and open space. This Toronto studio uses technology to teach kids how to code, create apps, and 3D print among many things.

They are fully staffed with qualified teachers and have the latest technology for students to use. I really appreciate that we just have to show up to each week’s class.

They are bringing the skills needed for kids to succeed in the future to classes that happen Friday-Sunday in their 2200 sq ft space.

S.T.E.A.M is Where the Future is Headed

I spend a lot of time on my computer doing what I do so I know how important computer skills are as a business opportunity.

I am also very aware that in 10-15 years my kids will be going into a whole different work environment than we have now. S.T.E.A.M is where the future is headed and I know how important it is to fuel kids’ curiosity while they are still young.

How Old Does My Child Have to Be to Take Classes at Alpha Coding?

So Alpha Coding has some guidelines but is also very receptive to working with students to find out where they are on their journey and helping them excel.

  • Alpha Mini (grade 1-2 students)
  • Alpha Kid (grade 3-7 students)
  • Alpha Teen (grade 8-12 students)

I asked how long each course would take to complete and was told that there was no end. Infinite learning is available at Alpha Coding as the topic is so fluid with so much growth. Helping our kids get a head start in the field is a great way to put the ball in their court.

Most Importantly My Kids Loved It

My 11-year-old came out of class raving about how great the teacher was but also talking about how the instructor was able to answer his questions regarding a career in app/game development.

They were both so proud of how their progress in Scratch and came home to tinker some more. I really like how it lit a spark in them and they could continue to explore the program on their own.

    That center looks like it has so much to offer our kids. It is important that our kids use technology for more than just video games so these courses seem to be a great benefit.

    Wow, this is so amazing and I am sure my daughter will have a great time doing this course.

    This is amazing. My boys are into coding, but they’ve been kinda self teaching themselves with the little kits that I got them.

    This is awesome. It would be such a great way to fuel a child’s interest in coding. Coding is going to be a “basic” thing in the near future, so it is best to equip the kids this early so they will have an advantage already.
