HERMOSA, Bataan – The Municipal Government of Hermosa led by Mayor Jopet Inton recently distributed flat screen television sets to 19 day care centers in this first class municipality.Mayor Inton, in a recent interview with local newsmen, said the TV sets were given to day care centers in various villages or barangays such as Almacen, Daungan, A. Rivera, San Pedro, Cataning, Sto. Cristo, Pandatung, SM Culis, Mandama, Mambog, Pastolan, Sacrifice Valley, Maite, Bacong, Balsik, Palihan, Culis Centro, and Sto. Nino.The recent distribution effort was conducted by Mayor Inton’s wife and first lady, CIAC Director, Atty. Anne Adorable-Inton.In many studies like in the United States, researchers have observed how educational programs on television can aid in boosting children’s intellect.They also found out that children who spent most of their television watching time shows like cartoons scored lower than those who viewed educational ones.“It’s important to monitor what your children are watching and show them educational programs as opposed to simply letting them watch cartoons,” a day care teacher told parents.In a published report online, for early learners, age-appropriate educational television can help kids prepare to learn how to read.Several studies suggest that these types of shows promote sound recognition and letter identification.Preschoolers can pick up on basic vocabulary, especially when shows include a featured “word of the day” or a similar focus.At a more advanced level, young viewers can explore more complicated literacy concepts like synonyms, rhymes, and relative words.These shows often balance educational content with features that naturally appeal to young kids like upbeat music and friendly, engaging characters. That mix of factors may be key to holding viewers’ attention. And, since most very young children have limited access to other media platforms, TV is still the most reliable way for them to have exposure to this type of content. It’s clear that high-quality television content viewed in moderation can actually help young children learn.
