Children tend to pick up new skills fast and the earlier you start the better. We would say children who are 5 to 6 years old can start learning to code through block-based programming languages that are syntax-free, fun and interactive, and that can help develop the child’s understanding of coding and computers.
Holistic development means evolving cognitive, creative, and social skills of a child to prepare them better for their interaction with the world. Learning to code is proven to nurture and enhance cognitive and social skills in children and better prepare them for the oncoming digital era.
In the new digital era, coding helps kids become the creators and not simply consumers of technology. Studies show that teaching kids to code aids in holistic development of the child, improving cognitive functioning, logical thinking, and boosts their creativity.
Coding is a skill that requires specialized knowledge. While there are many resources available online that can help you catch up on the basics and start teaching coding to your child, the best and most effective way to teach a child to code is making sure they have a qualified and trained computer science teacher to guide them on their coding journey.
