Early Learning

Teach Early Learners with Us

Early Childhood Education builds the foundation for lifelong learning, well-being, and preparation for elementary school education. It focuses on the social, emotional, cognitive, and physical development needs of young students in early learning settings.

Social emotional development is one of the key development points for the early years. Positive experiences in their interactions plays a big role in healthy social and emotional development.

Early Learning with Makeblock Education utilizes the basic application of coding through play to develop curiosity, imagination, and cognitive abilities. Similarly, promoting social and emotional development is a high priority. Lessons allow for the exploration of these topics in a positive environment.

The Makeblock Education design process is utilized to allow students to Understand, Explore, and Visualize. This process allows all students the ability to access and fully engage with age-appropriate curriculum expectations.

The Makeblock Journey

Screen-free programming introduces the youngest of students to the world of programming through device-free coding cards and themed maps. First, students immerse themselves into programming algorithms, which are step-by-step instructions to solve given tasks. Then, students focus on the specific sequence the instructions are required to be in.

Throughout their learning tasks, students are developing their problem-solving skills and computational thinking skills.
