Sooner or later, the average mother sends her child to kindergarten. At the same time, each of the childhoods has a not very pleasant chain of associations – canteen food, terrible tutors, broken toys, pugnacious bandmates, etc. And mom is worried how now the little girl will have to endure all this. I was not an exception, but, to my surprise, our kindergarten pleasantly impressed me.
My son goes to the oldest nursery – on the New Year’s Eve, he turned 3 years old. In the group of 15 people, many kids go for the second year, because the garden takes children from one and a half years in the nursery. But we somehow did not work out, and we went only this year – in 2 years and 9 months.
I was pleasantly surprised by the well-groomed territory of the garden – it is clear that they did major repairs and put children’s slides on the playground, so that there was where to play. There are outdoor equipment – strollers for dolls, cars, cubes, scoops, bicycles.
In winter, of course, everything is covered up with snow, so the street arsenal changes to sleds. No less important activity – feeding birds. At the request of the caregiver, one of the parents built a good wooden feeding bowl.
Now we all take turns in millet. They say tits, sparrows and bullfinches fly.
On New Year’s Eve, snowmen are set up on the territory of the kindergarten and the Christmas tree is decorated, so that the children have a feeling of celebration. Snowmen are puffed up before walking and swept down. I want to note that in our garden kids walk in almost any weather. And when on the street -15 – too. Is that in the rain do not walk.
Inside the group, too, everything is very decent. Lockers with names and pictures in the locker rooms, a spacious room for games and food, a separate pot room, where there is a bath, for everything happens, yes. Every child knows where his pot is and his towel is lying – washing his hands is necessary before eating and after the street.
Separate mention deserve heated floors! Even when the city is still / no longer heated, it is always warm in the garden, and I am absolutely calm that the child is playing on the floor. In the bedroom, each has its own little bed. They sleep in shorts, covered with a thin blanket.
Despite the fact that the children are still very small, they already have classes – after breakfast. They learn to make koloboks and bagels from plasticine, to make appliqués from cotton and colored paper, to paint with colors without going beyond the contour, and much more. There are also music lessons and a swimming pool once a week!
Like any mom, I was worried about the food. The child does not eat, horrible, very selective. In addition, I heard from mothers from other gardens that the children were fed something inedible – beet soup, barley goulash, etc. When I saw the menu, I was glad that this fate had passed us – the children were fed with quite decent and tasty food.
In their free time, children play themselves. A lot of toys: cubes, sorters, constructors, soft toys, cars, dolls, furniture for dolls, transport for dolls. Somehow she came to pick up the child, and the nursemaid swaddled the doll for one girl. Immediately came another baby and asked to swaddle her. And then they both sat down on the sofa and began to rock their daughters.
We are very lucky with the teacher and the nurse. After listening to other moms who take their children to other gardens, I understand what a nice garden we have! I only regret that since my childhood everything was different.
