Learn and grow together

A fun way to expand your child’s development! Come join us for play, passion, peers, and projects! Share a special experience with your kid(s) through coding activities and games. Our playDates are designed to support all learners no matter how much or how little experience you or your child have. All playDates are parent participation sessions. Kids ages 3-8 years old are welcome.

Learning for the Entire Family

Your child will learn through fun games and activities. PlayDates are mostly “unplugged,” meaning we spend most of our time learning about programming through physical activities. Of course, there will also be opportunities to code in the award-winning codeSpark Academy app during some playDates.

You’ll learn about a wide range of important parenting topics including: managing your child’s digital footprint, the ABCs of computer science (and how to help your kids), the latest research on screen-time for children, how artificial intelligence will impact your child’s career, how to define “quality screen time” and much, much more.

Activities

During our time together, we'll play educational games like Don't Eat Pete where you and your child will make up conditional statements to add silly twists each turn you take. We'll also spend time reading, dancing, building, pretending, and coding!

Through fun activities you and your child will learn about coding/problem solving concepts including:

  • Algorithms
  • Decomposition
  • Pattern Matching
  • Debugging
  • Sequencing, and more
