About The Webinar

Digital Safety for Under 5s: Effective Device Supervision and Monitoring

For: Nursery managers, practitioners, nursery assistants 

Aim: This webinar examines the importance of supervision and monitoring when under 5s are using devices. It outlines the forms that monitoring and supervising might take, both in nursery settings and in the home, and offers practical guidance on how to achieve it. 

Rationale: Ofcom’s recently published Media Use and Attitudes report found that one in five (20%) of UK children under the age of 5 have their own mobile phone, while 87% of all 3- to 4-year-olds went online at some point during the past year. Digital device usage may not be a topic often considered in relation to early years settings, but these figures illustrate that it is imperative to understand how to supervise such young children’s use of technology to mitigate the risk of harm.

Learning Outcomes

  • Understanding the importance of monitoring and supervising under 5s when they’re using technology and digital devices

  • Recognising the potential risks that this specific age group can encounter when they use internet-enabled devices

  • Comprehending exactly what is meant by effective supervision and monitoring, and what actions can best keep children safe

  • Identifying practical strategies for effectively monitoring and supervising the under 5s online to mitigate the risks they might face

  • Appreciating how to engage parents, carers and families sensitively and impactfully to share best practice and ensure safety when under 5s use internet-enabled devices at home
