Spending lots of time on computers and tablets or watching TV can affect children’s growthand the development of learning,communication,and emotional well-being.We encourage you to limit your child’s exposure to a screen (TV, computer, tablet, phone) to less than 1 hour per day.
When your child does watch a program, we recommend you watch too! This becomes a moment for you to teach and share. Programs such as Sesame Street and Mr. Rogers’ Neighborhood offer quality educational programming.
Sesame Street is great for teaching about early reading skills, numbers, colours, how to get along with your friends. Mr. Rogers’ Neighborhood focuses on learning to be a good neighbour or friend, feelings, and how to control feelings.
