I don't have any on my phone sorry, but my point was that switching on a tv at a centre doesn't support the EYLF. Which is the "curriculum" childcare centres have to run by that has been well researched, otherwise it would never have been implemented.

I love that my centres philosophy is to educate and do so with great structured days & programmes but the crux of it for me is, they are a daycare, not school.

The eylf is focused on identity, being connected to the world, wellbeing, being engaged in learning and communication. That's what I mean by "curriculum".
Your centres philosophy is based off the eylf.

I like that the carers get that 30min or so a week where they can run around after my child while the kids are watching TV. In that time they write up the kids journals, put kids belongings in their bags so I don't have to run around at the end of the day and find missing socks, get invitations and notes ready for parents to collect etc. now that the new curriculum says children over the age of 4 don't need a daytime sleep, I am not sure where the poorly paid carers are expected to find the time to do all of these extra things while also teaching 25 kids for up to 12hrs a day - let alone having a break themselves. As a kid we weren't allowed TV and the only thing that came out of it is that in many social situations I was an outcast because I had no idea what my friends were talking about when they discussed the latest TV show etc.

The eylf is great in theory. It's up to you, as the educator on how you implement it. It's a guide for children's learning.

Down time is rest time. Educators have a lunch break. TV is unnecessary.
