With government guidelines on limiting the spread of Coronavirus/Covid-19, Spark4Kids are working hard to transition all our computer coding courses online. This includes switching our in-person LittleKids classes over to an online format that remains effective and engaging, whilst extending your child’s learning.
This work is still ongoing and as soon as the transition online is completed, we will be in touch with parents who are currently registered with us as being interested in our LittleKids classes.
Do get in touch if you have any questions, using our contact details at the bottom of this page.
Tech 4 Little Kids is a computer coding, robotics and animation workshop (10am to 12 noon) for children aged 5-7 covering a variety of technology topics, with kids of all abilities being very much welcome.
Attendees include beginners (who have never done anything like this) all the way through to kids who have already taken their first steps in coding. Children who have attended this workshop in the past can attend again if they enjoyed it the last time: we tailor the coding challenges to build upon topics covered in previous sessions (please indicate previous attendance in booking notes).
This is an all-inclusive workshop, with Spark4Kids providing everything from the software and hardware that the children will use to healthy snacks and drinks – just drop your child off at 10am and pick them up at the end of the fun-filled workshop at 12 noon.
The workshop will involve various activities including circuit building (basics of electronics), mini-robotics(robot building), and group coding (story-building) and basic animation (using code blocks).
The focus is on creating a fun and supportive environment in which children learn about various aspects of technology and coding.
Food and Snack Breaks
All children on all-day workshops will be offered lunch. Children may also bring in a packed lunch if they have special dietary requirements. Healthy snacks and refreshments will be available throughout the day.
Children booked on the Extended Day option (not available on all workshops) will be offered breakfast on arrival.
Each workshop day will be punctuated with breaks to ensure that the children take time away from computers/computer coding. Short walks and trips outdoors will be taken, however this will be dependent on the weather.
We offer sibling discounts for families with more than one child enrolled with Spark4Kids. The discount is 10% off the second child’s fees and 5% off any additional sibling’s fees thereafter.
Children looking to have double sessions during term-time are also offered a 10% discount off the second hour of the session.
Discounts are automatically applied during the booking process, but only if all courses are included in the same shopping basket, and paid for at the same time.
Spark4Kids accepts childcare vouchers as fee payment towards all of our courses from the following childcare voucher providers:
- Busy Bees
