For the proper development of a child, appropriate stimuli are needed to stimulate progress in physical, mental, emotional, social and intellectual maturation. Between the ages of 3 and 5, kindergarten is the ideal source. It introduces the toddler to an unknown world.

Thanks to participation in preschool activities, the child acquires new skills that will prove necessary to him when he starts school education. Kindergarten is also of great importance for the toddler's immune system.
Viral infections in children

The immune system of a child who goes to kindergarten undergoes a real baptism of fire. Accustomed to the limited amount of pathogenic microbes he has come into contact with at home, he now has to fend off a massive attack of completely new, often virulent viruses and bacteria.
The preschooler becomes ill. The infection chases after the infection, and the runny nose never seems to pass. Terrified parents often decide to take their child out of kindergarten. This is generally not a good solution. According to folk wisdom, a child needs to be brought up.
It is better when the increased number of infections falls on pre-school rather than school time, while longer absences have a negative impact on learning. The child's immunity is developed through contact with microorganisms. With each disease, the list of viruses and bacteria expands, and the immune system will deal with it much faster in the next disease. Parents find out about this when in the second year of kindergarten the number of a child's illness decreases significantly.
To strengthen the immune system, parents can support it with an appropriate, well-balanced diet, rich in vitamins, and the so-called hardening. Keeping a child in greenhouse and sterile conditions makes it more sensitive to all harmful factors. Of course, there are situations when a toddler's preschool infections are serious, require long antibiotic therapy and are associated with other health problems. Then the parents will decide together with the doctor what actions should be taken.
Contact of a healthy preschool child with a pediatrician is sporadic. In the period between 3 and 5 years of age, parents must bring their toddler to the doctor when he turns 4, for the so-called the balance sheet of a four-year-old. There are also no compulsory vaccinations during these few years, although the list of recommended vaccines includes several entries.
