15,000 students have built their own game and discovered the world of coding with Code Camp and they’re hopping into a jam-packed Easter School Holiday program across Perth from April 3, 2017.

The three and four day coding camps are being held from April 3 - 29th, at multiple school-based locations across Perth and cater to children from as young as five years old. 

Code Camp runs three programs:
- Little League Code Camp (Years K-1) 
- Code Camp Spark & Ignite (Years 2-7) 
- Code Camp Leap (For students who have mastered Spark & Ignite Camps) 

During the camps, as kids create and build their own game, they learn about user design and the psychology of user experience, too. These skills can be adapted to any role in any industry. The end result is an app that works on multiple devices, so every kid is walking away with their own self-created game no matter what.

While parents are asked to pack a lunch for their coders-in-training, all devices and software is provided by Code Camp.

Little Kickers School Holiday Program
TBA
www.littlekickers.com.au

Play not Push’ is our motto! Little Kickers is a positive, fun-filled pre-school program executed in a friendly, pressure free environment that encourages children to “Learn through Play”. We recognise that every child is an individual and feel that children develop their skills best when they are playing with other kids of a similar age and ability. We focus on the physical well-being of the child and also promote the development of social skills such as turn taking, following instructions and sharing. These skills are put into practise at a key stage of your child’s growth. Simple problem-solving activities provide the perfect informal framework for encouraging our fledgling Socceroos to advance their basic attention building and listening skills. By playing fun games that include specific actions and movements children gain greater body control, whilst working on balance, co-ordination and gross motor skills. Our program also helps children to transition from parent-supported participation, to active, independent interaction through building skills and confidence.

Little Kickers normal classes will be also running at their usual locations. See website for more details. 
For ages 3.5 - 7 years
