We're told coding is a key skill for the future, but most of us parents haven't encountered it before and don't know how to get involved or encourage our kids to build these skills.

YPRL has a regular facilitated online Coding Club which can help keep kids coding while they are home from school. It runs weekly on Mondays at 4pm, check out upcoming sessions and book a spot here.
Erase All Kittens is a great introductory game that you can play along with your kids to help you get an idea what coding is all about, and for them to build their skills.
