At My Place Early Learning Center, we provide a trend-setting progressive coding curriculum that allows your child to learn through playing. Students will learn the basic foundation of coding through patterns, colors, and sequencing. We’re proud to offer STEAM programs and technology as early as our Toddler program.

Why teach progressive coding in preschool and Pre-K?

At My Place, we believe progressive coding gives children a head start for the future. Our educational programs prepare our students to successfully navigate their world with progressive coding.

Progressive coding involves using pattern recognition to present the problems in different ways while logically breaking them down into parts and creating the steps needed to solve them.

Studies show that progressive coding strengthens skills in math, reading, spelling, and problem-solving.

Ways to teach progressive coding in preschool and Pre-K

At My Place, some of our progressive coding toys that offer hands-on STEAM and technology education are:

  • Root, a robot that drives and moves according to drawn and erased lines
  • Fisher-Price®Think & Learn Code-a-pillar Twist, a preschooler-friendly toy that allows children to program a route for the caterpillar by twisting dials
  • Qobo, a robot that glows, moves, sings, and dances according to puzzle cards recognized by a reader underneath the robot
  • Ozobot, which can be programmed to follow patterns on a surface.
