According to a 2003 study on children's Internet use, pre-schoolers are now the fastest-growing segment of Internet users. While children at this age have a limited attention span for online activities, Internet images and sounds can stimulate their imagination and add to their experiences.
 
What pre-schoolers can do online
Parents and older siblings can go online with pre-schoolers to visit kid-friendly Web sites and play online games. At this age, adults have an important role to play in teaching safe Internet use and closely supervising their children's reactions to online material.
Safety tips
Here are some safety tips to consider when you go online with your 2-4 year old:
Always sit with your kids at this age when they're online.
Create a personalized online environment for your kids by adding acceptable sites to your Favorites list.
Use kid-friendly search engines (such as MSN Kids Search) or search engines with parental controls.
Investigate Internet-filtering tools (such as MSN Premium's Parental Controls) as a complement—not a replacement—for parental supervision.
Help protect your children from offensive pop-up windows by using pop-up blocking software. There's a pop-up blocker built in to the most updated version of Windows XP and the MSN Toolbar.
Start teaching your children about privacy. If a site encourages kids to submit their names to personalize the Web content, help your kids create an online nickname that gives away no personal information.
All family members should act as role models for young children who are just starting to use the Internet.
