Join our award-winning kids’ programs


Kids will learn everything they need to know to code their very own game: character development, storyboarding, animation, environment and level design, beta testing and, of course, coding.

Our coding programs are interdisciplinary. Programs also involve design, logic, math, computer skills, teamwork and creativity


Design the world around you! In our Robotics programs, kids will design, plan, program, and build electronic inventions while using an Arduino and learning how to code. Kids will better understand how everyday objects around them work and will have the opportunity to bring their ideas to life.

An Arduino is a microcontroller and is used by industry professionals. It was even used to prototype the Square credit card reader!


In our Minecraft programs, kids learn how to make Minecraft even more awesome, how computers and servers work, and core computer programming concepts while collaborating with kids equally excited about Minecraft.

They learn technical and critical soft skills, like effective communication and conflict resolution.

Set your child up for success with MakerKids

MakerKids specializes in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) programs with highly trained instructors. We run camps, after-school programs, private classes and more.

STEM jobs are in demand and an increasing number of careers look for STEM skills. Studies show that kids decide between ages 7-12 whether they will consider STEM as a career option.

The key is having positive exposure to STEM. Your child will develop:

– Confidence

– Interpersonal skills

– A positive relationship with technology

Maybe it’s time your child got excited about STEM with us?

Coding Classes Toronto

“MakerKids was a great experience for my kids this summer. One of my sons did 4 different weeks and each was a different program. Jacob loved MakerKids and learned a great deal about electronics and computer programming. These programs are the way if the future. It really was a very positive experience for him as well as our younger son who joined him for one of the weeks.  I recommend MakerKids to anyone whose kids want to try something different, it is just great!”
