TV-Free Toddlers? & Greener Day Care!
A recent study
recommends that toddlers be kept away from television altogether. The authors conclude that the adverse effects of TV outweigh even the positive effects of such programs as the much-beloved Sesame Street. This raises a question about what kind of Green Hour treatment our toddlers usually receive. And. in modern U.S. society, that means looking at the day care and nursery school experience too.
The North Carolina State University's Extension Service has some important ideas on this. In a fascinating project
they have designed an outdoor space for day care that brings a more natural experience to toddlers and other young children. Check it out!
