At Spark4Kids, our workshops run during school holidays. We offer a range of courses for a variety of age groups, with some courses available online, and others in-person.

On all of our courses, we encourage attendees to experiment, make mistakes, learn from these experiences, and take ownership of the code they write – in their own time, and at their own pace.

Kindly bookmark this page, as it is continually updated to reflect the latest dates and information regarding our holiday workshops.

Further Information

 

Attending a Course Multiple Times

You can re-book your child onto the same Spark4Kids course multiple times if they wish to continue working through the course material. We are constantly updating our courses and there are always new coding challenges to tackle. We are also able to tailor coding challenges to suit your child if they have a clear idea as to what they would like to work on (kindly email us about this prior to the course starting).


Discounts for Siblings, Friends and Multiple Bookings

We offer discounts on bookings that feature multiple course registrations, whether they be for the same or different children. A discount of 10% is automatically applied to every subsequent course at Checkout.

Please be aware that to receive discounts all courses must feature together in the same shopping basket and be paid for at the same time. They do not apply if sessions for siblings or other multiple sessions are booked and paid for in separate transactions.
