Can preschool education be the key to success in adult life?

Learning ability develops most rapidly in the first years of life. About 50% of the possibilities are acquired by a child in preschool, and another 30%. develops in early school age. It follows that the choice of kindergarten is one of the most important decisions regarding the education and future of our child. During the first years of life, the child is extremely easy to learn.

Children's emotions play a big role here, so if the learning process is accompanied by positive feelings, it is faster and more efficient. The child's welfare largely depends on what conditions we provide for him to play and learn from an early age. So if we approach it thoughtfully, the skills acquired in kindergarten will be the best start in early childhood education.

1. What does the kindergarten give?

- A child's stay in kindergarten has a very positive influence on its development. It stays in a natural and professionally prepared environment, which is conducive to learning and understanding the environment and the world, acquiring skills through action and emotional development. Research has confirmed that most children reach the appropriate maturity to attend kindergarten as early as the age of three. At home, parents, grandmothers or guardians are often not able to provide their toddler with such development as educated teachers and educators - says Katarzyna Sowińska, psychologist at "Orange Ciuchcia" kindergartens.

In kindergarten, the toddler learns everything and gains motivation, because other children can do it or are learning it, which gives them confidence in themselves and their abilities. It also learns how to cooperate in a group, which is usually not possible at home. The kindergarten also plays a very important role in achieving the so-called school maturity, consisting in attempts to read and write, concentrating during classes, learning and applying the binding boundaries, adequately responding to commands, prohibitions and orders. The child also learns the power of motivation and reward and understands the consequences of negative behavior.

Research and scientists show that a seven-year-old who goes to school after 3-4 years of pre-school education significantly exceeds a peer who did not attend kindergarten, even by two years in terms of many skills. Kindergarten, unlike school, is a place where there are time and conditions for equalizing the level of skills. Children do it stress-free, because in kindergarten they cannot be judged for their skills, and they are not able to judge their own abilities.

2. Public or private kindergarten?

Preschoolers can derive real joy from experiencing and learning through play. None of the other stages of later education will provide a child with such attractive conditions for development and stimulating creativity and creativity.

Educational programs provide opportunities to gain a variety of experiences and participate in interesting activities. They develop, among others physical fitness, manual and technical skills, reading and counting, getting to know the environment, developing sensory feelings, shaping the value system. Thanks to the experience gained in the group, social education is faster and more effective. A natural and spontaneous learning of the basics of tolerance, partnership and coexistence in the environment of peers follows.

However, which kindergarten to choose - public or private? Does the child have the same development opportunities in each setting? It should be remembered that non-public kindergartens are controlled by the Ministry of National Education and Sanepid, just like public ones. However, the offer of state and private kindergartens differs significantly.

In the state-owned institution, only five hours a day are devoted to the implementation of the core curriculum, while in the private one there are no fixed hours, and additional classes are often included in the curriculum and included in the monthly fee.

Private kindergartens offer a wide range of optional classes, incl. learning a foreign language, general development gymnastics, sports clubs, dancing and playing with ballet, learning to play instruments, theater, psychology, art, ceramics, natural science, culinary, science, robotics and many others.

- In the "Orange Ciuchcia" kindergartens, we place great emphasis on bilingual groups and groups with everyday English (also with a native speaker), because up to the age of 7, the foreign language acquisition is much more natural and effective. It is in kindergarten that children learn new words, song lyrics and nursery rhymes most quickly and easily. It is the same with music. If children have the opportunity to listen to various types of music or participate in professionally conducted musical games in kindergarten from early childhood, their chance to develop musical intelligence increases significantly - adds Ewa Tadeusz, methodologist of the Orange Ciuchcia Kindergarten.
