Information literacy study subjects should promote the student's ability to handle real world problems by using information technology in early childhood education courses. To realize the above target, this paper proposes an information literacy education course adopting 3DML teaching material creation for kindergartens and nursery schools. 3DML is a programming language developed by Flatland Online Inc. that creates three-dimensional pictures on the Web. The proposed course teaches students how to use information technology in the childcare field by creating 3DML contents for a virtual zoo and a virtual aquarium.
