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