I gave my daughter to the garden rather early, at two years old. Honestly, I did not have to choose a kindergarten for a long time. Somehow I was offered a job in one of the gardens near our house. Naturally, I arranged my daughter there too. And it is convenient to drive, and the child is always on my mind.
Acquaintance with kindergarten
To be honest, the garden was not the best for me. And I realized this only when I worked there for some time. A year ago, I transferred my daughter to another kindergarten. There were several reasons for this decision.
I changed my place of work, and besides, we moved to another area. So it didn’t make sense to carry a child across the city. I gave my daughter to the kindergarten, which is located right in our yard. As I learned later, this is a model garden.
My daughter quickly adapted to the new team, and I was glad that she was running there, like for a holiday.
Many mothers doubt about choosing a kindergarten for babies. Read reviews on the Internet, ask for advice from friends. But how many people, so many opinions. Let’s see, on what grounds can determine a good kindergarten.
Signs of a good garden
one. Educators regularly engage with children. Of course, children should rest. But if the rest turns into a pointless wandering through the group, it should be alerted. In the garden where I worked, the tutors chatted for half a day on the phone or did crossword puzzles, and the children were left to themselves. The result – a low level of development of children.
2 Friendly tutors. Coming for the child in the group, stay in the locker room and listen. Unfortunately, some teachers allow themselves to be rude to children. And this should not be allowed.
3 Ukhozhennost premises and territory. In the kindergarten and around it should be clean and tidy. The territory should be as closed as possible. This is especially true for the youngest children, who at any time can slip away from the playground. On the sites should be sheds, sandboxes, tables and benches.
four. The room should be warm. For example, in the garden where I worked, in the winter it was about 14 degrees. Not surprisingly, children were often sick and uncomfortable in several layers of clothing.
five. Children should walk if the weather permits. For me, this question when choosing a garden was particularly relevant, because there were practically no walks in the first garden from November to April.
6 Good food. Bringing a child into the garden, do not be lazy to read the menu – it is usually in the dressing room group. There should be meat and fish dishes, as well as cereals, vegetables, fruits and dairy products.
7 Well rehearsed matinees. If the matinees run smoothly and smoothly, the children, without stammering, go out to the audience and show their skills, which means that they are engaged in good faith with the children. This is another indicator of a good kindergarten.
eight. The presence of children’s drawings in the group and various exhibitions of crafts say that caregivers are interested in educating children. For example, in the dressing room of our group, the signed works of kids and a sample of a teacher are always in a pile. Jobs are changed daily.
9. Additional classes. Agree, not all parents can allocate time for additional circles for the child. It is very convenient when such mugs are in the garden. For example, my daughter additionally deals with drawing and English. Also, twice a week, the children have individual lessons with a speech therapist and a psychologist.
ten. Good mood baby. Agree, this is the most important indicator.
