Prioritize Hands-On Play
Play is essential when it comes to children's health and development. Look for toys that inspire imaginative, open-ended thinking, and can be used in different ways to grow with children.
Enjoy Screen-Free Time
Limit screen time to no more than 1 hour per day of high-quality programming for children ages 2-5. For children younger than 2, media use should be very limited. It's best when an adult is standing by to co-view, talk, and teach.
Interact & Connect Through Play
Children learn best from parents and other caregivers. Use play as an opportunity to talk, read, and sing with children, all of which will build their vocabularies, reduce stress, create connection, and develop foundational skills for learning.
