Conclusions Media culture became a big part of childrens lives in Poland. Children at the age of six and under spend an average of 1 hour daily with screen media, mostly TV. Not only parents, but also kindergarten can shape the understanding of the role of media and technology among children. Most of the kindergartens implement the elements of media education through special classes, mostly for the 5-6-year-olds Closer cooperation between kindergarten and parents is needed.
