The Goddard School in Waldorf Advocates Setting Limits on Screen Time for Kids

Setting These Rules Early Will Help Establish a Lifetime of Balance
 
WALDORF, Md. - Oct. 30, 2014 - PRLog -- The Goddard School in Waldorf, whose mission to provide exceptional early childhood education and develop a lifetime love of learning, advocates for a screen-time plan for toddlers and young children.

The Goddard School in Waldorf is focused on helping children from six weeks to six years of age reach their learning potential. This critical time frame establishes many of the habits that children carry with them for a lifetime. As the ownership and usage of smart phones, tablets and other screen devices continues to soar, many parents are left wondering how best to incorporate them into a daily routine – if at all. With its families’ best interest in mind, the preschool cites the American Academy of Pediatrics report (http://www.aap.org/en-us/about-the-aap/aap-press-room/Pages/Managing-Media-We-Need-a-Plan.aspx) that discourages screen time for children under the age of two, and limits screen time to one to two hours daily for older children.

“Setting these screen time limits early helps provide a healthy balance in our kids lives,” says Akhil Govil, Owner of The Goddard School in Waldorf. “That, in combination with our own ‘media diet’ example will encourage positive, long-term habits.”

The Goddard School in Waldorf uses the most current, academically endorsed methods to ensure that children have fun while learning the skills they need for long-term success in school and in life. Our talented teachers also collaborate with parents to nurture children into respectful, confident and joyful learners.

The Goddard School in Waldorf welcomes children into this nurturing environment where the curriculum and top-performing faculty encourage learning for a lifetime. The Goddard School’s AdvancED and Middle States-accredited curriculum and F.L.EX.® Learning Program, developed with early childhood education experts, provides the best childhood preparation for social and academic success.
