Computer programming for young children
Hello - I have a kindergarten-aged child. As I think about their lifelong education, I’d like to consider computer programming/coding as almost like a second language that I feel like they should know for life.
For those with older kids who feel like they have achieved this (or are on their way to), how did you get there? Does school provide enough of this along the way these days? We are in the OUSD system, if that helps. Or did you supplement with outside providers/tools, and if so how often/how consistent/what age is appropriate to start?
Also open to specific provider recommendations. At this point I’m a little more interested in getting an idea of the map for learning, but any further details helps.
