Coding in Preschool Enriches Literacy and Numeracy Development

At Wheeling Country Day School, we believe that our youngest students are more than capable of higher level thinking with the support of teachers and parents. We designed our early childhood STEM initiatives around engineering, technology, natural sciences and robotics. Our youngest preschoolers have fun learning to sequence and communicate through gross motor and electronic applications for programming. Learning alongside the interactive robots, Dash & Dot, we enrich our students’ literacy and numeracy development by adding tangible patterning, abstraction, fine motor, and verbal skills found in the essence of coding logic. This hands-on learning sparks curiosity, fosters collaboration, strengthens communication and builds digital literacy in our youngest students.
