No rush to learn computers

I am sad to hear that computers will be introduced as young as kindergarten

Re: Coding in kindergarten.  I am sad to hear that computers will be introduced as young as kindergarten. It’s always been proven that a child can learn quite quickly all they need to know with computers, even starting in Grade 6. The Waldorf School way of teaching honours this as they understand children need to be children and there is already too much ‘screen’ time early on which affects the child in other ways.

There needs to be no rush and it definitely isn’t progress to ‘rush’ a child to learn computers. There is so much evidence and more coming showing the harm this does. Please let kids just be kids at least until they are a bit older.
