Restrictions on which websites can be accessed by children.

Example: The program utilizes a pop-up blocker to minimize advertisements to children during computer and tablet time. Only educational websites with no advertising are allowed to be visited by children during program time.

Practice Implications: This policy will require the program to limit the websites accessed by children, either through staff supervision of children’s computer or tablet time or by working with system administrators to use pop-up blockers or to block certain websites from children’s use during program time.
