Technology Use and Screen-Time Policy

Media technology is part of daily life for most of us, including for children. Meaningful interaction with technology and media can offer opportunities for children to explore worlds they might otherwise be unable to experience.  However, it is important to guide children on how to use technology and set limits. A screen-time policy is necessary to set clear expectations and boundaries when it comes to technology use and the amount of screen-time permitted for children during the time they are in your care.
