The use of modern technologies by preschoolers is a complex and current topic. In an
increasingly digitized society, children are exposed to electronic devices from an early age. Modern
communication technologies have become an integral part of everyday life, profoundly influencing the
way preschool children interact and learn. While technology can provide opportunities for learning and
development, there are also concerns about its overuse, impact on social-emotional skills, and potential
health risks. This paper examines the benefits and risks associated with early exposure to technology
and proposes strategies, effective educational practices, and recommended methods to effectively
manage technology use and to promote the healthy and balanced development of preschool children.
