Why Choose Kindergarten?

Kindergarten should be a pleasant, positive introduction to school. This will set the stage for the rest. There are many programs that are better than the others. You can find out what they offer and how you could get your child the best start, no matter what other options may be available.
Why Kindergarten?

The goal of a great kindergarten program is to help children learn and practice the skills that are essential for success. Your child can learn and practice important social, emotional, problem solving, and study skills in kindergarten. This will help him throughout school.

A key goal of kindergarten is the development of self-esteem. This is the process by which your child feels good about herself and confident in her ability for learning. This is where books can be of great assistance — they help to boost confidence.

Kindergarten teaches cooperation. Kindergarten provides your child with an opportunity to learn patience as well as how to take turns and share with others. This will help him throughout school and beyond.

Although most children are naturally curious and some may struggle to focus, others have a hard time using their curiosity. Kindergarten is a time when you can spark and direct your child’s curiosity and natural love for learning.

What would an ideal kindergarten look?

Ask parents and educators to describe the ideal kindergarten. There are basic guidelines that educators share about what constitutes a good program. It should:

You can help your child learn more about the world and how to organize it. This helps your child feel more self-worth and confident, as well as increase his willingness to work with others and take on challenging tasks.

Use a combination of both teacher-initiated (teacher-initiated), as well as child-initiated (child-initiated). You can allow your child the freedom to work on her own or with small groups in investigations and projects.

Restrict your participation in large-group activities that involve sitting. Instead, the majority of activities involve play-based, hands on learning in small groups. As the year progresses in the school year, the time spent in large groups becomes more difficult to accommodate 1st grade.
Encourage reading, writing, and a love for books. All over the classroom, you will find books and words as well as children’s own writing.

Keep these aspects in mind as you look at K1報名. Each child is unique and each program may not work for everyone. Some children respond well to a program that gives them more direction while others prefer a program that offers less. Before you decide, speak with your child’s preschool teacher. Visit a few schools. Talk to the principal.

What happens if the Program is not ideal?

Maybe you are limited in your choices about where to send your child, but concerned about the quality. Allow the program and teacher to get the year underway. If your child’s class seems different in the fall than it did in the spring, this could be an indication that something is wrong. Many programs start slow. They take time to help children feel at ease in school and separate from their parents.

Talk to the teacher if you still have questions after a few week. Ask the teacher to discuss her goals and your expectations. Sometimes an apparent mismatch may be just a different approach. Keep the dialogue going. Ask for information and be open to learning the “whys”, but don’t forget to ask about the teacher.

However, sometimes a teacher or his approach might not be the best fit for your child. Next, it’s time to speak with the principal. Prepare clear points. This will help the principal understand the problem and suggest ways to help your child.

Sometimes, but rarely, children have to change schools or teachers. This may be the result of several classroom observations made by your child’s principal or teacher. It is important for the group to agree on this decision.
