However, as much as technology has brought about numerous benefits, such as bringing people closer together and making our work much easier, excessive screen time can have a negative impact on early childhood development.

Children utilise their senses to explore and attempt to make sense of the world around them from the moment they are born all the way through early childhood. In fact, research has found that people – both children and adults – retain the most information and learn best when their senses are engaged.
