					              COMPUTER USE POLICY AND PERMISSION FORM


The Bombeck Family Learning Center policy for use of computers in the classroom
includes the following guidelines:
     Computer use must be tied to the curriculum and support concrete learning
       experiences and activities, rather than as a stand-alone activity.
     Software must be developmental rather than skill-and-drill in nature.
     Internet access must be done for the purpose of researching content for study or
       e-mailing parents, and then with the assistance and supervision of a staff member.
     Computer use by children younger than three years is generally not
       recommended. Exceptions are made with parent permission on file.
     Computer use by three- and four-year olds should be as much about playing,
       exploring and experimenting as other more traditional activities are.
     Teachers should chose software and arrange the physical space around the
       computer to encourage more than one child to use it at a time.
     Teachers should monitor and limit the time children spend on computers, and
       whenever possible explore the games and programs with the children.
     Parent permission must be on file for any child at the center prior to that child
       using a computer in the classroom.


These guidelines reflect the NAEYC’s position statement on technology use by young
children, as well as further research and study done by the center’s staff.
