Young children love to imitate the important adults in their lives. Our children at Apple Hill Academy childcare center often imitate their parents when typing on the “computer.”
As they mature, knowing how to use computers will be an essential skill for kids to learn. It is important to familiarize preschool children with basic computer use. Parents can begin with an introduction to mouse, keyboard and trackpad techniques. During this early stage, adult supervision is important to assure safe and responsible practices are followed.
There are many learning activities to be found online for preschool kids. They can solve puzzles, play games, and complete educational lessons. When they get older, children will have homework assignments to complete online. So, whether your child is in daycare or preschool, now is key to begin advancing them into the world of technology – and, teaching them the keyboard is a great place to begin.
