This year – the last in kindergarten. Next autumn my daughter will already go to school. I’m a little sorry, because this carefree time ends. Yes, and impressions from attending preschool institutions, we have the most good. What did my child learn over the years, how did the kindergarten affect her? This is my article today.
We began to attend kindergarten at 2 years old with a tail. By this time, her daughter already confidently owned a spoon and regularly went to the pot. We were just beginning to deal with dressing. There were quite a few children in that group – around 25. There was no opportunity to dress all with the nanny and caregiver, so I had to learn.
And after a few weeks, her daughter coped well with outerwear and shoes, and then with the rest of her wardrobe items. Of course, at home we also worked in this direction, but also contributed to the garden.
Educators brought to the level of automatism a wonderful habit of washing hands, and the more often the better. They also have a great tradition – to clean up the dishes from the table and refer them to the kitchen window. Now, at home, the daughter herself takes the dirty dishes to the sink.
We walk a lot outside the garden, but only in the group does the daughter have the opportunity to independently contact and find solutions to conflicts without my participation. Moreover, the tutor can not always keep track of all the ups and downs in the children’s team.
Here I can not fail to note the desire and ability to put up, apologize, share. In addition, from the kindergarten, the daughter brings new ideas of entertainment for a walk every time – mostly, these are outdoor games with poetic accompaniment.
Our teacher pays great attention to the relationship between the sexes, and to girls in particular. More than once, I heard her making remarks to the boys for not letting the girls go ahead, not giving them a place, not helping, etc. By the way, in our group there is even an unwritten rule – it is desirable for girls to walk in skirts and dresses, but not in trousers and sweatpants.
I am not the only one who teaches the rules of behavior in society. In kindergarten, the teacher always focuses on polite words, tact and manners. And at home, I often heard typical kindergarten phrases. For example, please give me bread supplements, can I …
And in general, I can safely say that my daughter has become calmer, more measured, assiduous and docile. Apparently, the reason is that our teacher gives a lot of attention to the question of discipline in the group.
Skills and abilities
Here it is difficult for me to separate the effect of visiting the kindergarten and home classes. But I see that children develop comprehensively in the classroom in the garden. This is information about the world, family values, interesting facts, etc.
All these years, children regularly do creative tasks for special workbooks. Now they are added to the recipe and notebooks with logical tasks. In the classroom, children master the skills of writing, the basics of reading, counting, analyze the composition of words and sentences.
You can not ignore the matinees. Honestly, we would hardly have done so many thematic crafts if it were not for the need to carry them into kindergarten for the next holiday.
And performances, costumes, poems and congratulations – all this will long remain in our memory.
Only good impressions are connected with the kindergarten stage of our life. And I do not think kindergartens are just a place where children stay while their parents are busy.
For us, preschool has become the next stage of development, education and maturity. What else will be, as they say! And how did the kindergarten affect your child?
