Getting creative with code from age 3+
Did you know that coding is now on the National Curriculum from age 5+
A new local mum-run education company is teaching young children to code even before they can read.
mama.codes (www.mama.codes) offers playful step-by-step programming projects to use at school or at home, and runs a local code club and holiday workshops.
The aim is to teach children valuable digital skills and transform screentime from a source of anxiety into a learning opportunity for the whole family. Three and four-year olds start coding nursery rhymes like the Gingerbread Man then move on to stories and jokes, and by seven they are coding Shakespeare!
We believe every child can and should code, both for the excellent career prospects it brings but also because it create an important mindset shift: kids are in charge of screens and not to other way round!
To code mama.codes you'll need a tablet (iPad or Android) and to download the free ScratchJr coding app.
