My daughter went to kindergarten a year and nine. I was very worried, how will she be there? It was only soothing that the baby was well prepared: she herself was both a spoon and a fork, did not dive into the plate with her hands, went to the pot, was happy to sleep during the day, and spoke excellently.
Everything turned out well and I never regretted that I gave it so early.
Is it good for a child in kindergarten? I asked myself this question, probably, only in the first week. Because after 5 days we were offered to leave Sonya to sleep in the afternoon, and after 8 we left her for the whole day. The teacher said that the child perfectly adapted, and added that Sonya was a sad child.
It turned out that caregivers divide all children into 2 categories: kindergarten and mama’s. Sadovskiy – they easily adapt to the conditions of life in the garden, they like the atmosphere, they do not perceive life in the children’s team as a stressful situation and they go well there for all 3–5 years.
Of course, I was delighted with this statement. And she hoped that these words would be confirmed.
How to understand a child well?
From the very beginning Sonya easily got up and stomped to the kindergarten with her small legs with pleasure. She never cried before the door and rubbed against my elbow. When I came for her, I was always busy. At home she missed, and on weekends she asked about children and wondered when it was Monday.
The conclusion suggested itself: the child is comfortable there.
And gradually the feeling of guilt that I gave it so early began to leave me.
A year later, the tutors have changed. But the daughter was still happy with life. But she was unhappy with me, asked why I was picking her up so early, asking to play again. Sometimes, I had to sit for an hour and a half, until she deigned to go home.
I know women who have a very jealous attitude towards the garden. They cannot bear that the child is well there.
But I’m just happy that Sonya likes in the garden. This means that the child is calm all day, the situation does not irritate him, he is interested and comfortable. And I absolutely do not care well my daughter with me personally or by strangers. The main thing – the baby gets pleasure, does not suffer, does not worry.
Only a couple of times we had little misunderstandings. Sonya suddenly announced in the morning that she would not go in a new sundress. I sulked at home for a long time, it took about twenty minutes before it turned out that Neraly did not like the dress. What to do? Dress we took off, the garden went and life got better.
For a long time, she explained to the child that the mother buys only beautiful things, you need to wear what you have and go to kindergarten, regardless of whether the children like her clothes or not.
The mood of the child
I am trying to assess now the state of the child when he goes into the garden, and the words come to mind: calm, bright, balanced, stable. So tell me, is it not wonderful when there are no drops, no distortions in one direction or another, sudden bursts, unexpected whims or violent joy?
I am personally satisfied with this: to know that in the evening I will take the child in the same condition as I gave it, without shocks and stresses.
