Teaching little kids about algorithmic and systemic thinking is useful. It helps them understand the systematized world they are living in, removing some of the magic and hopefully empowering them to not just passively consume technology.

I see programming as an application of algorithmic thinking, it's an interesting topic for those interested but not really necessary to live a full life.
