From the Canadian Paediatric Society (CPS):
The digital landscape is evolving more quickly than research on the effects of screen media on the development, learning and family life of young children. This statement examines the potential benefits and risks of screen media in children under 5 years old, focusing on developmental, psychosocial and physical health. Evidence-based guidance to optimize and support children’s early media experiences involves four principles: minimizing, mitigating, mindfully using and modelling healthy use of screens. Knowing how young children learn and develop informs best practice strategies for health care providers.

The Teen Parent Centre School was established in 1991. The present school facility was built in 1995 with few changes over the years. What has changed is the way students have been able to take classes so that they can graduate from high school. In 2014 we developed a survey, asking former (and current) students for feedback on how this program has impacted you and your family in the years since you attended. We plan to redo this questionnaire every three (3) years, with some adjustments to the questions. At the end of the survey, we would appreciate suggestions you feel would improve this program. As a "Thank You" for completing our survey, you will receive a $10.00 Tim Horton's coffee card and have your name put into the grand prize draw for a Samsung Galaxy s2, 32 gb, 8 inch tablet (value $400). Just make sure you fill in your contact information on the last question of the survey.
