Screen Sense: Research Based Guidelines for Screen Use for Children Under 3 Years Old

Zero to Three Shares Key Research Findingszerotothreelogo_bk

There are many mixed messages about screen time and young children. Yet many libraries are adding apps and other screen media to storytimes and programming for young children. If you’re trying to navigate these waters, the new research from Zero to Three can help!

Zero to Three, the National Center for Infants, Toddlers, and Families, has published a free resource written in partnership with leading researchers in the field of media and young children that contains an “authoritative review of what is known about the effect of screen media on young children’s learning and development.  It is designed to serve as a tool for guiding parents and professionals in making informed decisions about screen media use.”

The Screen Sense: Setting the Record Straight document, as well as a Key Findings summary and Tips for Using Screen Media with Young Children are available at the Zero to Three website.

Another resource to look at is Screen Time: How Electronic Media–From Baby Videos to Educational Software–Affects Your Young Child by Lisa Guernsey.
