Computer Time at Home

Computer programs that are offered on home systems are focused on both entertaining children and teaching them, which offers a process for teaching children without the child even realizing they are learning. Children can start learning how to use the computer as early as 3 years old. Be sure that the computer program is developmentally appropriate for your child’s age.

Follow three easy steps in teaching your child how to use the computer:

1. Make sure the mouse is comfortable and easy to use.

2. Speak slowly and instructively, explaining every step you take.

3. Allow them time alone to get to know the computer.

Madison is 5 and she is learning Early Reading (for ages 4-6 years old): word recognition, sentence structure, initial consonants, word families, blending and creativity.
