THE IMPACT OF SCREEN TIME ON CHILD DEVELOPMENT



1. Cognitive Development:

Constant exposure to screens, particularly in the form of passive entertainment, can hinder the development of important cognitive skills such as problem-solving, critical thinking, and creativity. At WorkCastle, we recognize the significance of hands-on, real-world experiences and maintain a screen-free environment to foster well-rounded cognitive development.


2. Physical Health:

Extended periods of screen time can contribute to sedentary behavior, leading to a range of physical health. At our childcare, we prioritize children's physical well-being through structured and unstructured activities. Active play not only strengthens muscles but also enhances motor skills and coordination.


3. Sleep Disruption:

Exposure to screens, especially before bedtime, can disrupt a child's sleep patterns. The blue light emitted by screens interferes with the production of the sleep hormone melatonin, making it challenging for children to wind down. Establishing a screen-free bedtime routine and limiting screen time in the hours leading up to sleep can contribute to better sleep quality.


4. Social and Emotional Development:

While technology enables virtual connections, it's crucial not to overlook the importance of face-to-face interactions for a child's social and emotional development. At WorkCastle, our caregivers are passionate about engaging with children through interactive activities and creative play, fostering social skills and emotional intelligence.


We believe in providing a safe and stimulating space for children to play and learn without the distraction of screens.
