Internet Safety

Statistics released by Ofcom show that over 50% of children aged 3-4 go online for nearly 8 hours a week, and 1 in 5 children aged 3-4 have their own tablet.

This may be surprising, but research has shown that families are spending more on technology for a number of reasons:

  • To further their children's education
  • To maintain connections with family and friends
  • To facilitate and enjoy daily life
