Why does online safety matter in the Early Years?
Ofcom’s ‘Children and Parents Media Use and Attitudes Report’ (2018 – released in January 2019) found that:
- 1% of 3-4-year olds have their own smartphone and 19% have their own tablet
- 52% of 3-4-year olds go online for an average of nearly 9 hours a week
- 45% of 3-4-year olds use YouTube
Staff at Flash Ley know how important it is to help safeguard our pupils and how important it is that early years children are learning about the world around them and how to keep themselves safe online.
