ERUDITH club kindergarten education program
“Kindergarten”. What associations does this phrase evoke in you? Good ones? Then let’s move on. Well, if they are bad, then … it’s more difficult. Although, let me invite you on a short journey through Preschool Childhood.
Are you surprised by the word “journey”? Doesn’t fit with the “kindergarten”? Do you want something serious, permanent, fundamental, solid, “within the framework” of preparing for school, so to speak? And then they offer some kind of frivolous trip? And here I am ready to argue with you. It may seem surprising, but the purpose of the kindergarten is not the banal development of knowledge, skills and abilities of its pupils and not the enhanced preparation for school. It’s too boring and uninteresting. It would be wasteful to spend the most fabulous period of life only on this.
Kindergarten is designed to organize and captivate the child on an unforgettable journey through the Magical World of Childhood.
So, our fabulous ship “ERUDIT” is ready to sail. We invite everyone who wants to go on this unforgettable journey to our ship. Come in, please, make yourself comfortable. You are right, it really feels like home here. And the ship itself is extraordinarily beautiful, graceful and durable. Well, it’s time to go!
The first job is done. Well, now let’s move on to the second one. To make the voyage successful and interesting, we will determine the course of our journey.
The program that we have chosen from many others will help us with this. It is she who will help us make an unforgettable journey through the expanses of the Oceania of Childhood.
The main program according to which the kindergarten operates “The program of education and training in kindergarten” edited by M.A. Vasilyeva. This is a modern variable program, which comprehensively presents all the main content lines of upbringing, development and education of a child from birth to 7 years.
Main objective of the program
creation of favorable conditions for a full-fledged life of a child of preschool childhood.
It is important for us adults to understand that childhood is not a preparation for adulthood. Childhood is life itself.
- care for the health, emotional well-being and timely comprehensive development of each child;
- creation of an atmosphere of humane and benevolent attitude, which will allow raising children to be sociable, kind, inquisitive, proactive, striving for independence and creativity;
- creativity (creative organization) of the process of education and training.
The program is modern, interesting and rich in content, defines the whole range of general educational tasks in all main areas of educational work, which gives it the right to be called complex (and count such programs on the fingers). Well, what is very important – the program has passed an examination at the federal level and is recommended by the Ministry of Education of the Russian Federation (there are not many such programs either).
