Being a parent myself I think that Pluralsight offering these courses is great. My daughter is 5 and starting to get curious about technology, my 2 year old son will most likely be the same as he gets older. She can already command an IPad better than I would expect.
In the UK, the school syllabus is changing to incorporate programming into the curriculum and programming with Scratch is one of the tools that is going to be used, so this course already fits into the UK education system. In fact it would be a very good course for the teachers as-well, as I know a few teacher who are struggling with it a bit.
