Abstract This paper investigated 3–5 year old children’s parents’ attitudes towards use of iPad in Child Care Centres. A survey was used and eighty parents participated in this study. The major findings include most of the parents agreed that Apps designed for preschool educational purposes was indeed assistive of children’s learning, and the most participating parents thought that use of educational media could be used to teach literacy, numeracy, science, and art. However, they did not agree that educational media
could be used to teach physical education. Moreover, it shows that the most parents thought that use of educational media could be used for children’s cognitive development, fine motor skills development and language development. However, they did not agree that educational media could be used for children’s social development and gross motor skills development. Early childhood educators and parents may find this paper useful about the use of iPad in early childhood settings.
