Internet Safety for Young Children

You may think considering how to ‘teach’ young children about internet safety is rather odd but there are things we can do to support safe use of the internet for the youngest children and, establish good habits for them keeping themselves safe. Nursery IT support is provided by 123ICT and they are running an internet safety course for parents that you may be interested in, there is a link below.

Things to think about for our youngest children are:
Supervision
Limited access and use of the parental control features on devices
Establishing a pattern on limited screen time 
Keeping devices out of bedrooms

The Oxfordshire Safeguarding Children Board also offer advice and support around use of the internet and child safety: https://www.oxfordshire.gov.uk/cms/content/internet-safety-advice
