As in any institution, in kindergarten, of course, there is a certain set of rules that must be followed. Perhaps in each kindergarten they are different, I will tell you how things are with us – in the state pre-school institution of the city of Kiev.
If the nursery group did not pay special attention to the appearance of the children – if only it were convenient to wear and put on / take off, then in the younger group the teacher clearly defined the requirements for the appearance of the children.
So, for girls are required dresses, skirts, sundresses, and not shorts, leggings, pants. Of course, if suddenly I forget and put on my daughter leggings with a tunic, she will not be excluded from the kindergarten, but they will make a remark to me.
For boys, nothing special – shorts / pants. True shorts are usually combined with tights, which somewhat impairs my aesthetic feelings, but, fortunately, I am the mother of a girl, so the boys do not really interest me.
If you prefer, you can skip breakfast and feed the child at home, which I often do. But during lunch the discipline in our group is iron. Before eating, the teacher wants to enjoy your meal, to which the children respond well: Thank you! After the meal, again, the children say Thank you, to which the caretaker answers Health.
During the meal, the kids sit at the table, do not get up, do not play around, do not talk. By the way, my daughter was sent off by her friend Dima, because she was teasing while eating. As it turned out, she incited the boy to eat for distillation.
After eating, each child cleans up after himself – he takes the dishes to the table in the kitchen, then goes to wash his hands.
Eat in the garden is necessary. If a product is prohibited for a child (for example, it causes allergies), then this requires an official confirmation (a certificate from the doctor), and not a phrase oh, he does not like pumpkin porridge so much !.
My daughter still attends the younger group, she has no too close friendship with any of the children, except Dima’s only friend. Communication preferences so far consist only in who walks with someone in a couple on the street and in class.
On the street, children usually play on the playground or walk in pairs around the kindergarten. By the way, I sometimes watch them walking out the window. Do not believe it, but no one fails, everything is clear and consistent.
Of course, children are forbidden to fight, push, tease. All conflicts are usually resolved with the participation of the teacher. Maybe because of age, and maybe the group is like this, but there are no violent kids in our group, and there are conflicts with self-harm, respectively.
By the way, we have a great book about the rules of behavior in kindergarten. Before you go into the garden, my daughter learned her by heart. There are excellent poems about how educated children behave in kindergarten – they say polite words, make friends with the educated, behave well. My favorite:
A puppy came to kindergarten,
He is still new
Everybody shouts to him: Hi!
And the puppy is silent in response.
Where is it seen? Oh, how rude!
After a walk and a meal, be sure to wash your hands and face, each child has their own individual towel and locker. After the walk, the children independently put the mittens on the battery to dry, if necessary.
The teacher and the nanny are undoubtedly the main ones in the group, the children call them by their patronymic name. True, in the nursery group we had a nanny, who herself appeared to the children as Nanny Luda, and the children addressed her to you. But her age is about 20 years old, in contrast to our teacher, who is under 60. By the way, I recently heard our teacher make a remark to one mother that the child does not address her to you.
In the garden discipline is paramount. As the teacher says: I am in the group and none of the children have the right to tell me what to do. Usually, I’m not giving you a mom 🙂
In general, as elsewhere, in kindergarten, children should behave politely, tactfully and educatedly.
Do you have any special rules of behavior in your garden?
