Introduction to Robotics
Robotics offers many of advantages for infants
We are pioneers introducing Robotics in our curricular programme from 2 years old onwards. Despite its uncommon use in infant education, Robotics offers countless advantages for your children:
- It allows children to develop logical thinking and define strategies that lead them to solve day-to-day problems.
- It helps children to work on sequencing, contrasts, mathematical concepts… even when they are only 2 years old.
- It fosters cooperative work among children and classmate interaction when looking for a common target.
- It exposes children to a technological ambiance fully adaptad to their age.
- It creates a magical context for children that pushes them to acquire new knowledge in a fun way.
In order to carry out our programme, we have specific devices and software for each age:
- For 2 & 3 year old children we work specifically, by means of our Robotics programme, sequencing simple mathematical concepts and specific vocabulary from the didactic unit we are working on in this moment.
- For 4 & 5 year old children we expose children to programming by means of a very simple software (even simpler than “Scratch”) and of a specific hardware that allows children to create their own figures that follow instructions already programmed.

Robotics offers huge advantages for children´s development
- … Recent investigations from M.I.T. show that learning code and programming from toddlers generates a very benefitial impact in children with difficulties to learn in terms of creativity and emotional response. This impact is also huge in cognitive and socio-emotional competency.
- … Different sofware and hardware used in our Robotics programme are fully adapted to the use in infant education. That allows children to find Robotics not only truly stimulating but feasible.
- Robotics creates an amazing ambiance for children! Allows children to stimulate cooperative work when looking for group solutions to daily problems that children may have. Obviuously, this significantly increases cohesion among them.
