SCREEN TIME POLICY


Because we care about the health and well being of the students at Smarty Pants, we follow the American Academy of Pediatrics’ 


Recommendations on Screen Time:

  • Children under 2 should have no screen time (FYI)
  • Children age 2 and over should watch less than 30 minutes per week at child care, and less than 2 hours per day total.


Parent understands that TV and other electronic media can get in the way of exploring, playing, and interacting with others, which encourages learning and healthy physical and social development.

 

Therefore we will restrict screen time by:

  • Allowing ZERO minutes total per week of screen time (NO television, NO video, and NO DVDs).
  • Allowing no more than 15 minutes of educational computer time per day.
  • Not allowing any screen time during meals and snacks.
