At Spark4Kids, we teach kids the basics of programming using computer games – encouraging them to experiment, make mistakes, learn from these experiences, and take ownership of the code they write – in their own time, and at their own speed.

The Summer Holiday 2022 workshops are accessible online and in-person during the following weeks:

  • Week 1: Online-Only: Monday 25th – Friday 29th July 2022
  • Week 2: In-Person & Online: Monday 1st – Friday 5th August 2022
  • Week 3: In-Person & Online: Monday 22nd –  Friday 26th August 2022

Our In-Person courses are running from Alleyn’s School in Dulwich, South London.

Note that the above times are London/UK times – please convert to your local time to ensure the online classes work for you. If you have one home computer being shared by more than one child, we recommend booking separate days/weeks for each child. If you live locally within Dulwich, London, we may be able to provide you with a loan laptop for an additional child, depending on laptop availability.

Online Classroom

The online version of this course is attended remotely over the internet, hosted in an online classroom that has a similar feature-set to popular platforms such as Discord, Zoom and Skype. In addition, we provide attendees with pre-course training material, as well as ongoing training so that they are able to make the most of the online course whilst they are in attendance.

Features of our online classroom include video presentation, chat, whiteboards, and shared screens and all interactions are moderated as well as recorded and available for later playback. We follow the UK government’s guidance on cyber-bullying, and operate a zero-tolerance policy towards anti-social behaviour online.

 

 

Further Information

We offer sibling discounts, payment by instalments and payment using childcare vouchers on all our courses.

 

Paying by Instalments

Spark4Kids accepts payment by instalments on some of our courses, provided the booking is completed early (the option is not available if booking within a month of the course start date).

For term-time bookings, children looking to have double sessions during term-time are also offered a 10% discount off the second hour of the session. For workshop bookings, children who are booked on a second workshop also attract a 10% discount on the second workshop.

Discounts are automatically applied during the booking process if all courses are included in the same shopping basket and 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.
