Currently, the education sector has been transformed because of the incorporation of information and communication technologies as a valuable support for the formation of digital skills and significant learning. In this article, we present how educational robotics can be integrated into a school environment allowing the achievement of curricular objectives and the development of programming skills and computational thinking. The study was oriented towards a population of 131 students of early childhood education, belonging to a concerted educational center of the autonomous community of Castilla y León, during the 2016-2017 academic period. It describes the resources used, the teaching-learning activities developed and shows what was the acceptance expressed by teachers and students about the incorporation of educational robotics in the classroom.
