Bring coding to life in your early years classroom
The easiest way to bring coding to life in your early years classroom
Cubetto turns coding into a tangible, age-appropriate experience that reduces screen-time, increases engagement, and enhances learning.
Coding without the screen
Coding with Cubetto happens with hands-on coding blocks, which means children can use it irrespective of reading ability or language barriers.
Inclusive & gender neutral
Cubetto works out of the box, with little to no prep or prior experience required to teach with it. As fun for educators as it is for students.
More learning, less prep
Programming Cubetto using the colorful command blocks engages children in learning the ‘powerful ideas’ for early learning described in the CS framework: patterns, problem-solving and sequencing.

The design of Cubetto follows in a child’s natural curiosity for inquiry and discovery allowing children to meaningfully construct knowledge through hands-on experience.

The tactile nature of the programming interface is lovely, as is being able to see and edit the program directly. I rate it very positively, and my six-year-old loves it.

Check out our lesson plans to see how Cubetto fits within your curriculum’s framework.
Why is coding an important 21st-century skill?
We believe that coding is the new literacy, and should therefore be prioritised from an early age. We think that children should be introduced to coding when they start learning how to read and write, and our smart-toys begin with the ABCs. It’s important children this young are exposed to basic principles of programming, even if they don’t necessarily learn how to code. Being introduced to the environment of programming, and the language of ‘algorithms’, ‘debugging’ and ‘functions’ helps give them the foundations necessary to excel.
Do I need to know coding to use Cubetto?
Nope, the Cubetto playset has been designed to be equally accessible to both those who can code and those who can’t! Our teacher’s guide explains all the concepts to you, and suggests our favourite ways to explain them to your pupils.

Does Cubetto cater to special needs?
We’ve experienced a great response from special needs educators who have introduced Cubetto in their programmes. You can find out more by reading our case studies on our community page.
Due to its tangible language Cubetto does not rely on written word for your students to engage with it. This makes it suitable for ESL, non-sighted children and children with a variety of Special Educational Needs alike. This means that not only can SEN students learn and play with Cubetto, they can also do so in the same learning environment as everyone else.
Do I need a device to use Cubetto?
Everything you need to get started is included in the Cubetto Playset. Just add 6x AA batteries and you’re ready to go!
How many kids can use a single Cubetto?
Our community have reported having the best levels of engagement using Cubetto with pairs. However, groups of three and four still show good engagement.
Can I use more than one Cubetto at once?
Yes! You can have many Cubettos in the same room.
Cubetto responds to the nearest Board, so simply turn on the Board and the closest Cubetto will automatically pair with it. The two devices will then stay paired until one is turned off.
