Adaptation to kindergarten begins with an individual visit of the child to class. The child gets acquainted with the teacher and the environment during the absence of other children in class. During this meeting, the child gets the first experience of interacting with the teacher, working with materials in the classroom and orientation in a new space for him. Regular class attendance begins with short visits. Observing the child, we increase the time he spends in class. After a while, the child starts visiting in accordance with the chosen program.
During adaptation, parents receive daily feedback from the teacher so that this period is comfortable for the child. Parents also have the opportunity to get answers to the questions that arise.
We are attentive/ pay great attention to the health of children attending school. In the morning, teachers examine the children visually. If the child does not feel well and symptoms of discomfort are visible, we immediately inform the parent, and the child goes home.
For the prevention of diseases, we regularly clean surfaces, ventilate the premises, disinfect the air using germicidal lamps, and disinfect materials.
Groups of different ages open up more opportunities for personal, social, intellectual and emotional development. In groups of different ages, there is a constant process of transferring knowledge and skills from older children to younger ones. Younger children observe the work of the older groupmates and see what they can do and what they will do better when they grow up. In addition, the younger ones do not need to constantly seek help from an adult, because older classmates are always nearby to help and give advice. Also, the child has more opportunities to develop leadership qualities. Even the shiest child can feel like a leader among young children.
Older children begin to take care of the younger ones, they feel more competent and responsible. For example, in the 3-6 class, children can show some presentations to their younger friends, reinforcing previously learned material even better, as well as trying themselves as teachers.
All children develop at their own pace. In a class of different ages, a child will not feel insecure or lagging behind the program, because all children are at different stages of development. In a class of different ages, the child actively participates in his learning, step by step approaching more difficult activities. Thus, a love of learning develops.
