Kindergarten daughter attends the third year. All this time I notice: the farther, the more eagerly she does it. We don’t take a nursery, two-year-old children generally do not understand the essence and functions of a preschool institution, but four-five-year-old children are already quite capable of explaining their desires, preferences and discontent.
In the same group, her best friend Dima is studying with her daughter, whose mother we knew before the birth of children. In principle, they made them into one group in order to make the adaptation easier, and sometimes it is necessary to insure each other.
The daughter often asks whether Dima will go to the garden today, and what he will wear, shares with him news and plans, because they have a lot of common friends. But this friendship brings more benefit to the boy, because, unlike my daughter, he plays and communicates only with her.
Recently, I noticed that girls began to appear separate girl interests. They carry dolls, handbags, jewelry, boast clothes, exchange toys.
By the way, there is a remarkable advantage in exchange – you need to return the toy the next day, so the option I don’t want to get up is considered.
Here we should pay tribute to the head of the kindergarten – she is constantly looking for new activities for children. Almost every week we have, if not a puppet show, but a soap bubble show. And recently, even the planetarium came! The cost of events is symbolic – 50-70 rubles. (15-20 UAH).
In addition to cultural events, others are often held – photo shoots, for example. For children, this is also a kind of entertainment. Every month, children take a course of oxygen foams, here, again, – and benefit, and entertainment.
We have 26 people in the group, so birthdays are often celebrated. The daughter always enthusiastically tells how they dance, sing the loaf, then get treats from the birthday boy.
Several times a week, children are engaged in creativity. At the beginning of the year we purchase large workbooks with various tasks. These are mostly applications, but sometimes there are also crafts such as simple origami. My daughter really likes that the next day the teacher hangs all the works on the wall so that parents can admire the creation of the child.
Another interesting activity is on duty and weather monitoring. I don’t know why, but every time my daughter is waiting for her turn with terrible impatience.
It so happened that the tutor and the nanny divided between the roles of the bad and the good cop. No, this does not mean that the educator punishes, but the nanny regrets. Just the first is usually strict, loves discipline and order. A nurse is softer, flexible, often hugs children.
I do not know how other children, but my daughter is not in any way afraid of a teacher. She respects and obeys her.
I like the style of teaching in the group – the constant use of illustrative and even video materials, special attention is paid to moral principles, safety rules and good manners.
I try not to force my daughter to anything. Yes, sometimes we do not want to go to the garden, but the main thing here is to find out the true reason for reluctance. This may be a cold, and an insult to someone, and even the desire to eat grandmother’s pancakes instead of kindergarten food.
In this case, I explain in detail the possible consequences – if she does not go to the garden, then she will have to go with me to work, or go shopping or polyclinics, especially since my friends are all in kindergartens and have no one to walk with. By itself, the conclusion emerges that it is better in the kindergarten.
Due to the fact that we can be said to be phenomenally lucky with the group and the institution, we have no special problems with visiting. And yes, in most cases, my child does go to the garden as if it were a holiday.
Do your children wish to attend kindergarten?
