S.P.O.I.L them dailyHave You S.P.O.I.L.-ed  Your Kids Today? Our take on screen-free activities is based on developmental psychology and overall good mental and physical health. Our research has led us to develop The S.P.O.I.L. System, which is a screen-free psychologically-based system for prioritizing those activities which have the largest positive impact on child development. The system guides you through the 5 most important activities you should engage in with your young child each day.

  1. Social
  2. Play (free-play)
  3. Outdoor
  4. Independent
  5. Literacy
