Programming Classes at RP4K Can Help Your Child Excel

Turn Procrastination into Professional Skills

Most kids love video games… Unfortunately, most of the time, they’re playing games instead of doing things that could help their educational or professional development. But it doesn’t have to be that way! You can take your child’s love of gaming and use it to introduce them to a real-world skill set that could have them prepared for employment straight out of school.

Programming is and will continue to be one of the single most important – and fastest-growing – careers of the 21st Century. Whether your child decides to make video games, program business apps, or train the next generation of AI, this is a field with endless room for creative workers who can excel.

Boost Their Learning

Programming is about more than just “making computers do things.” Coding is pure brain fuel. It teaches both linear and nonlinear thinking, encouraging creative problem solving but within a structured environment. Plus, programming is a team effort. Learning to code at a modern school means learning collaboration skills as well – and those are skills which will serve your child well no matter what the future holds.

Even if coding isn’t for them, a background in computer science is also great preparation for just about any STEM-related field!

At Real Programming for Kids (RP4K) Your Child Will Have Fun While Learning Highly Important Skills

We welcome students between the ages of 7 and 17 and offer a range of classes from introductions to advanced professional-level coding. Any child, at any age, can reap the benefits of programming courses – so contact RP4K today to learn more, or sign up for a free class!

My daughter has been using this programme for 5 years now, and consistently through the past 2 years. She just loves it! It's been helping with her math and science marks, and teaching her a good, in depth understanding of coding. She's gone from doing art as a hobby to considering how her work can be used in such things as game design. She's no longer just a passive consumer of media but now sees our computer as an active piece of equipment in the same vein as her kayak, bicycle and drafting station. RP4K does an excellent job of facilitating this, adapting to her atypical learning challenges, and presenting a very professional online learning interface, which is FAR beyond the Board of Ed. product she has to use. I would recommend this to any parent who wants to give their children the tools needed to thrive in a rapidly changing world, in a format that makes acquiring them the highlight of their week.

I can not recommend RP4K highly enough. I would give them 6 out of 5 stars if I could. When my son asked to try a programming class, I had no idea of the journey he was about to embark on. He is learning practical skills in a programming language used by professionals and loving every minute of it. Zander leaves programming class beaming most days about what he has been able to achieve. This practical, hands-on series of classes is fantastic for the curious mind. It is the perfect course to allow for online engagement in a meaningful way. Zander has completed 3 courses to date and continues to climb up the ladder with the aspiration to eventually be able to create his own game from scratch. The course instills confidence in a practical skill and in math. In addition to being a great program for kids and providing me with a report card to help understand progress, RP4K have been exceptional communicators across the board, Thank-you RP4K! I recommend you every chance I get!Erika

My 8 year old son is on his third program with Real Programming 4 Kids and he is loving it! It is the highlight of his week and he is learning so much, making new friends, and using his coding skills in everyday life. I was very impressed with how quickly and seamlessly RP4K was able to transition from in person to online classes. The continuity of the program was very important for my son during the pandemic. While we were happy with the in person classes, we definitely find the online program works for us. My son is able to maintain his program and communicate with his online friends despite the provincial shutdowns, and the quality of the instruction and the program itself is exactly the same. I would highly recommend this program. The customer service is wonderful, the approach is very personalized and it is a fun, fantastic learning opportunity. On a personal note, a giant thank you to RP4K for all the effort you put in to keep our kids coding! During a difficult time, RP4K provided a positive outlet to keep my son connected to his friends.

Julian, age 10, has been enrolled with RP4K for three courses. He has completed classes both in-person, and virtually, with RP4K.Julian had very much enjoyed his first class which had been in-person, and was impressed with how seamlessly RP4K pivoted last March to an online platform. He now prefers this platform. He loves that RP4K offers proper Programming courses, and not simply Coding classes. Each lesson is a mini maths, and science class within the game. Also currently in development are specialized maths courses for Programmers.The students are evaluated prior to placement and RP4K groups students by ability. RP4K is clearly highly selective in their hiring because not only are all of the instructors subject matter experts, they’re skilled in teaching children. It’s one thing to be a good communicator with adults but it’s a gift to be skilled at teaching children. Instructors make classes fun, and engaging by taking mini lessons such as calculating the slope of a line for students at age 9, and making that skill applicable to the child’s interests.RP4K truly offers a unique experience with the depth, breath, and fun that young minds crave.

London Location: Our child has been attending RP4K and is in his second year. He really loves coding and wants to build a career around it. As a parent there is great value in these programs --- and we thank RP4K for their flexibility as our child is also an athlete which means we have to reschedule from time to time for competitive sports activities.

Since 2011, our son and daughter have taken 10 courses each with RP4K at two different locations. The courses are very well designed and the instructors have all been wonderful. The admin team at RP4K are focused on ensuring clients have a positive experience and they always go the extra mile - they have been really good to us. Our kids have taken computer programming in school now and are miles ahead. Our experience with RP4K has been a full 5 stars over 7 years - we recommend RP4K very highly. Its simply one of the best things we've done for our children.

I would rate RP4K and Rob for 6412 stars if I could!!!!! I took a course of Visual Basic Pizza Bandit and it was perfect for a beginner like me. Rob was an excellent instructor. He made the instructions very clear. It was very fun!!! I will definitely join more courses in the coming months.

RP4K is very useful and helpful for my son to get in the University of Waterloo computer science program. My son learned C# and had a wonderful time in an educative environment. This course improved his creative thinking through the game he developed by encouraging him to add unique features.

We have two kids who have been on regular enrollment at R4PK for a few years now, so I think we are in a position to judge the effectiveness of the program.My twelve year old son is a strong programmer by now after moving through various languages (VB, C#, C++, Java) and has built enough of a foundation that enables him to pick up new languages (like Javascript) on his own quickly. My younger son is still working through the intermediate courses but has gotten a love for the visual design.My sense is that the program presented by RP4K is effective due to interesting projects (the games line up with what most kids like), small classes and excellent instructors.Both my wife and I are in technical fields and we could have attempted to teach our kids ourselves, but I think there are things that are just done better in a structured class setting.For our boys we prioritized the in-school term programs above the summer camps (although we do the odd summer camp too), although we know parents who do it the other way. But either way, to build strong programming skills, we believe that it is best to sustain this over multiple years and frequent (weekly) exposure. So there is value when taking this path to try and sustain it and see it as a multi-year investment.The tuition can be costly, but given the doors that it could open, I feel it is a sound investment.So I give this a 5 out of 5.
