Our classes are offered throughout the year on various days, and at different times and locations to make coding classes convenient and affordable for all families. That’s why we offer our once-a-week, eight-week classes at your child’s school and in communal spaces within your community. If you don’t see a jrCode class in your area, contact us to bring coding to your kids.

Our registration process is provided by each community, so if you experience any inconvenience or have any questions, please contact us or call 1.704.654.1607.

Grades K – 1
Thursdays 4/27-6/15
3:05-4:05 p.m.

This introductory class provides your young child with their first game creation experience using the fun and interactive ScratchJr app. This app allows your child to discover coding frameworks based on familiar playground games in a “touch and drag” setting, easily experienced on their own iPad or Android*. The hands-on class uses online visuals, puzzles and memorable characters to engage your child in critical thinking skills and gaming concepts. After the completion of this class, children who can read independently will be ready for jrCode’s Foundations class.

  • Prerequisites: None
  • Coding language/platform used: ScratchJr (block language)

What Families Are Saying

  • Can’t say enough good things about jrCode and my daughter’s newfound love for coding. She sat down and coded a video game in Scratch for her little brother to play the other day. Thank you for giving our kids this amazing opportunity with college students as the teachers – couldn’t be more exciting for all the kids.

    -BRIDGET, PARENT

  • Alek loved the course! He couldn’t wait to get home and code some more today. In fact, he set the alarm for 6am this morning so that he can code 1/2 hour before class. As this 4-day course was his first exposure to programming, we are very pleased with his enthusiasm and desire to continue. He really liked the instructors and the assignments.

    – AMY, PARENT

  • I wish I could do it every day for two hours. It’s so fun, but you’re actually learning something.

    – ANDY (9), STUDENT

  • I highly recommend this program. It’s a great opportunity for children to start computer programming at a young age. It’s a very accessible and kid-friendly way to expose kids to coding.

    – BROOKE, PARENT

  • Thank YOU! I really thought you were such a fantastic teacher and made Cailyn feel really comfortable and encouraged. I REALLY hope you teach her next class. Thank you so much for being a great role model.

    – JENNY, PARENT

  • Jase had a wonderful time in class this session with you all! Can’t wait for the fall!

    – CAROLYN, PARENT

  • Thank you for bringing Scratch to Belmont! Kavya enjoyed learning with both Jillian and Sara. This was a great introductory course and please keep us in the loop if you do decide to have either intermediate or advanced coding programs in the future.
