Introducing ICT and coding at an early age allows children to develop fundamental skills in the use of technology as we all know it today. It’s all around us; calculators, digital cameras, old telephones – they’re all good affordable resources to introduce to in an early years setting.
A child’s level of development varies so it’s essential you are providing them with the necessary resources that allow them to explore and extend their learning further.

Take a look at our favourite products to help you introduce some simple coding activities and support the next stage of their learning development goals.
