Even the most experienced psychologist will never tell you how your little son or daughter will behave when they first visit kindergarten. But still, sooner or later, every kid will have to go to this institution, which means that parents will need to prepare in advance for solving possible problems. What is it like, the first day in kindergarten and how to help the child get used to the new environment and environment?
Where to start acquaintance with the kindergarten?
Try to explain to the baby in advance that very soon he will spend some time in kindergarten. Explain clearly and in detail what this place is. As arguments, you can use the need to prepare for school or remind you that in the kindergarten you can play common games with other kids, there are a lot of new toys. Remind your child that he can learn a lot of new and interesting things. In advance or on the first day in kindergarten, walk around the territory of the institution with the baby, do not forget to get acquainted with the nanny and teacher. Do not forget to tell and warn the baby about everything. If in the first days, leading to the kindergarten, you will“leaving him there”, quickly running away on his own business and not promising to return, at best, the child will be offended by you. At worst, he will feel unwanted and unloved and withdraw into himself for a long time.
How to spend 1 day in kindergarten?
All child psychologists recommend leaving the baby first for half a day in the garden, and only when he gets used to it - until the evening. However, some children, when they see new toys and a large number of peers, forget about their mother and run away to play. But another kid may well arrange a tantrum. If your child's first day of kindergarten is terrifying, try staying with him in this unusual institution. But be aware that not all gardens will allow you to attend due to existing regulations. If it is impossible for parents to be on the territory of a preschool institution, pick up the baby on the first day immediately after the morning walk. Gradually increase the length of your baby's stay in the garden, and after a week and a half, he will stay there for the whole day.
Sending the child to kindergarten according to all the rules
On the eve of going to the garden, prepare all the necessary things, include in the fees the main character - your child. Put with you a set of clean linen, a change of shoes, napkins or a regular handkerchief, a comb. If you need anything else, you will certainly be told in the garden itself. In the morning, do not forget to take your baby's favorite toy. Do not be too lazy to get up early, fees on the first day in the kindergarten should notpass in a hurry. Try to bring the baby up to date on the way, tell what you will do, and name the time when you will come for him. But say goodbye to the baby quickly, kiss him, wish him a good day and leave. Even if the child begins to act up, do not try to convince him or calm him down. Believe me, an experienced teacher will do it better than you. When you come to pick up the baby, ask how his first day in kindergarten was. Show interest in the story, praise the child for getting used to the new environment so well and quickly. But if the first day was not exciting, try to convince the baby to try to be more friendly with other children.
