When will there be a snowball ?, Is it really another New Year without snow again? How slush and dirt are tired – my friends, relatives, acquaintances sighed … Everyone wanted winter and she was not slow to appear. As they say, fear your desires. Our here is fulfilled. Now we suffer.
Indeed, this year struck the inhabitants of our southern city with unprecedented frosts. For a whole month we have endured the burden of life. We try to leave the house less often, get the warmest sweaters, buy heaters … However, this does not help much in the struggle with the elements. All the same, freezing.
And then another problem was formed. Kindergarten. How to survive the cold in pre-school organization? How to behave parents? Many were at a crossroads. And everyone was looking for their own ways out.
Heaps of snow, sleigh rides, slides, snowmen … Maybe this is a joy for children, but not for their parents trying to protect their children from hypothermia and disease.
Walking has to be reduced or even canceled when there is a strong wind, and the thermometer shows -25. What to do with kindergarten?
Well it would be warm. But we, unfortunately, were not lucky – it is cold in the room. Children are put to sleep under two blankets and do not even undress at all. They sleep like cabbage in two sweaters, pantyhose and pants. What parental heart stand?
Those who had such an opportunity simply stopped taking children to the garden. In the group, where there are 30 people, only 10 remain. Perhaps this is the way out.
However, as the educators themselves assure and confirm the doctors, this approach is dangerous because the children’s immunity, developed when visiting child care centers, relaxes, so to speak. When the children, after a long absence, come to the garden, they start to get sick again. The body is accepted for adaptation.
I really don’t know if this is true? But educators, citing their work experience, argue that this is usually the case.
According to the rules established by law, in kindergartens can not use heating devices. But the same rules prescribe that the group must be at least 19 degrees. In ours, the temperature did not rise above 15.
We decided to turn to the head. But she only spread her arms, explaining that we were just unlucky. It turns out that in other groups it is warm. And our because of the bad faith of heat engineers, who screwed up something, organizing the heating system, was left out of comfort.
We asked how the manager offers to solve the problem. That way out was not found. Then we informed her that the heaters would be installed. She refused to take part in the process.
We bought heaters at our own expense. When they were installed, it turned out that the wiring with which the garden is equipped would not withstand such a load. We again went to the head. All left with her with the same result.
We also changed the wiring with our own forces. Looking for professional craftsmen to do everything according to safety regulations, to acquire materials, to wash after their work …
Now in our group is more or less warm. However, no one canceled drafts. There is an idea to install plastic windows. Here we are going to the head. Maybe she decides to participate?
This must be done both to those who attend the children’s institution and to those who are brought up at home.
For example, we try to strictly observe the daily regimen, eat less sweets and consume fruits and dried fruits. And in the summer I do the workpiece. Freeze chokeberry, currant, raspberry. From berries in winter I cook kissel and invent fruit drinks.
In addition, we do not forget about charging. Daily – active games. If it’s not too cold outside, then we transfer classes there.
Going for a walk, I never wrap a child’s nose with a scarf. It has long been established that this does not help, but on the contrary – harms.
Every evening I wash my son’s nose with various saline solutions.
We go to the garden, although not regularly. When it really froze, we stay at home.
