Technology

At The London Preschool we use technology to support your children’s learning and development. The current generation of young children have been born into a technological world which is progressing at an incredible pace, is showing no signs of slowing down and will become a key part of their futures. We believe that it is important to include the use of technology in our curriculum for our children over the age of two to get them accustomed to using technology in a productive way.

Instead of traditional Desk top computers and Laptops, we use tablets and touch screen TVs to help teach your children, letters, sounds, colours, numbers and shapes. They are a great tool to engage with children, for example when showing them the works of an artist or to illustrate concepts that staff might be talking with the children about. Our touch screens are a great way for children to practice air writing and letter formation using their whole bodies. Use of technology is for age appropriate lengths of time and for a purpose. If used appropriately the use of technology ignites curiosity and promotes problem solving skills.
