This is awesome! I was looking for resources to introduce pre-schoolers. Do you have any experience with any of the apps in there? Any recommendations? :D

And thank you for sharing!

I have these on the list because I looked into them in depth. My kids have enjoyed Scratch, and CodeSpark and, Code.org.

And we had the LightBot & Algorithm City apps & both got a lot of use & were quite fun.
