In the area of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) education, coding has been highlighted as a core competence. Young children are required to start to learn coding. However, coding is not an easy skill, and early childhood educators usually lack relevant training. This paper suggests that the learning of logical concepts and sequential program are appropriate for young children. This paper also reports a case study of teacher training. Preliminary results suggest that early childhood educators are able to design appropriate learning activities of coding education for young children after receiving training.
