Python, like other programming languages with sufficiently simple syntax, can be taught starting in third grade. The general plan is to let children use several interesting programs for some time, and then show them how to make simple changes in text strings and variable values. Then, over the next few years, gradually show them how to make ever-more significant changes until they can write programs on their own.
Note that the programmable tiles in Turtle Art provide an environment in which children can start with simple Python expressions and work their way up to full programming.
