The Kindergarten school does not see itself as an enclosed space and seeks collaborations with other actors.
The School of All counts in kindergarten:
- Welcome classes
- 1st kindergarten classes
- The vertical classes of 2nd and 3rd kindergarten (children 4 and 5 years)
This vertical organization, bringing together two-year-old children within the same class, if it requires managing the physiological needs of children of different ages, offers more conviviality in the classes, more flexibility in the size of the classes, as well as an increased possibility of encouraging mutual aid and interaction between adults and children.
One of the last lessons of International Kindergarten, the one we never talk about, is the role of third-party separator: the school “takes” the child from his parents, teaches him the essential contact with other adults, makes him understand that he will leave when he grows up. This last parameter is rarely explained but is present and as such, we could reproach our school for not offering enough “male identification models”, as this educational course is feminized in kindergarten.
It is normal for your child to play a lot in kindergarten. For him, playing is a natural activity. But at the same time as he plays, he learns a lot! Find out what skills your little one is developing in kindergarten.
In kindergarten, learning goes through play
When a child plays, he develops his language, his imagination and his creativity. Until the age of 6, play is the most important activity to help him develop and learn.
The game also teaches him to get along well with others, to share, to take his turn and to follow rules. Playing also allows him to experiment and find solutions to problems.
In addition, when a child is having fun, he feels good and happy, which makes learning easier?
Playing therefore allows him to develop a positive attitude towards school. This is why kindergarten teachers leave plenty of room for play in the classroom. Here’s a look at what your child is doing and learning in kindergarten.
The game allows the child to develop his knowledge by exploring. As he has fun, it gives him the taste to learn and to make efforts.
Kindergarten education has three main objectives:
- Give the child a taste for school
- Promote its overall development
- Prepare it for the first year of primary education
To achieve this, the program provides for the development of six skills in children. These skills are assessed in the classroom through play, guided activities, discussion and group routine.The teacher’s job is mainly to observe the student, guide him and find tips to help him when he is having difficulties.
