I don't know of any such sites that exist, but it sounds like a really nice project. I'd be interested in helping out if someone else wants to take this on (I do too much else to be in charge).

This is a great site to get started. Tho you would have to go through each lesson yourself and understand every point being taught and teach it to your kids since it's slightly technical (not that technical, but you would have to have done some prior computing for it)
There's not alot needed to learn python and be able to write fairly complex programs in python.
You'd need to teach them the basics of computing with it. Its more than just python. You need to teach about lists, dictionaries, conditionals, datatypes, iteration, etc ....
Much of this is taught in that site. Python's a great language to use for it.
And don't forget, the best way to learn after getting the basics is to write an useful program with it. Thinking of one might be the hardest bit for you tho
