Using computers in the preschool age in Cuba is a generalized practice since the 2001-2002 academic year in all the preschool classrooms located in the elementary schools, the daycare centers and the 5-6 years-old children groups, who are involved in ¨Educate your child¨ program that represents a novel experience. Working with computers implies certain elements that if not rationally and scientifically addressed may have negative impact on the health status of individuals, mainly preschool children at full growth and development. The present paper was aimed at giving arguments on the hygiene of the use of computers by preschool children as a teaching aid. The ergonomic requirements were analyzed; in the event that they are not properly met, they may cause health alterations in individuals who operate these pieces of equipment, particularly preschool age boys and girls according to their anatomical and physiological features. The educational institution will be in charge of managing the system of teaching tasks involving the use of computer and its contents at the preschool age, under the guiding of educators and teachers who should have the adequate knowledge about the characteristics of child development in this phase of life.
