Learning how to program in early age helps children to develop some capabilities as logical thinking, problem solving, and creativity. Incorporating robotics in programming children can help to learn in a concrete and funny way, collaborating with each other. The research project presented in this paper describes the first prototype that implements a programming environment for robots using mobile devices, for children in early childhood—4 to 6 years old. This prototype is fully functional and allows Bluetooth communication one by one. We expect that our research will contribute to human–computer interface field, providing a new nontraditional interface to support the learning process of programming in preschoolers.
