There was a scandal in kindergarten No. 5 of Verkhnyaya Pyshma: two mothers tried to stand up for young caregivers, but incurred the wrath of other employees and parents.
Alena Akhmadieva transferred her daughter to the younger group of the kindergarten a year and a half ago. Alena’s mother Olga Vladimirovna works as a physical education instructor in this kindergarten.
At the same time, the management of the establishment changed. Two young teachers were placed in the group where Alena’s daughter went. Parents noticed that inexperienced teachers could not cope with the children: the kids were constantly fighting and were bruised and abrasions.
One day Alena came for her daughter and saw that the child was walking around in wet clothes.
— The teacher was dressing the children for a walk, but the nanny left early. My daughter returned home with severe inflammation between her legs, as she had been walking described for a long time, Alena Akhmadieva told E1.RU. – One child almost left the group, others walked unattended on the site.
After such a walk, my daughter had severe irritation on her legs
Photo: Alena Akhmadieva
The girl developed dermatitis (the certificate is at the disposal of the E1.RU editors). If this happened in winter, she could get a cold in her genitals (a similar story happened in Nizhny Tagil).
Alena began to find out why the teachers did not keep track of her daughter. After talking with them, she decided that the head teacher was putting pressure on the teachers, allegedly forcing them to write explanatory notes on every minor occasion. After that, the woman, along with other dissatisfied parents, wrote a complaint to the education department.
— If educators had a normal leader who helps, does not arrange intrigues, they would work, not sort things out. They work in two shifts with the kids, the group is complex, the children are uncontrollable if you don’t know how to communicate with them, – says Alena.
But the educators themselves, apparently, refused their words. During the inspection, no one spoke about the difficult working conditions and did not express complaints. As a result, no violations were found.
During the next inspection of the kindergarten, no violations were found

The conflict also affected Alena’s mother, who works as a physical education instructor in a kindergarten. Now Olga Vladimirovna is on sick leave. The situation in the kindergarten, according to her, changed after the arrival of a new head and methodologist.
— They immediately said that they would remove unnecessary people. A lot of employees left after that, it was difficult to rebuild, – says Olga Vladimirovna. “Last year, I had to take sick leave to care for my son. The management did not like it, they expressed dissatisfaction with me. I tried to adapt, so even when I was on sick leave I went out and worked.
I never refused them anything, went out to the group, did any work. I don’t know why they behaved this way and why they treated us like that,” she added.
Another mother, Lyudmila Zvereva, faced another problem. She believes that her child was dropped from the group for no reason, although at the same time coughing children went to the kindergarten.
— The youngest in the group has a child coughing excitedly, a terrible cough, not residual, green snot. I call the teacher and say why is he not on sick leave? I was told that the manager forbade touching him, – said Lyudmila. – After this scandal, the doctor began to find fault with my children, landed for no reason. The boiling point was the moment they were sent home. I went with them to a paid doctor, who said that the children are perfectly healthy.
Ludmila also thinks that the guys are not being watched well enough.
– A few days before, my son almost left the group, when another mother caught him on the way out. I am sure now that there is no and will not be supervision over our children, because the entire staff is already set against us, she added.
The head of the kindergarten, Marina Dyachkova, refused to talk to E1.RU, sending her to the Verkhnyaya Pyshma Education Department for comments. The manager didn’t pick up the phone. On another phone number, the departments answered the question of who could comment on the conflict: “Unfortunately, we cannot address you anywhere.”
The press service of the city administration told E1.RU that a prosecutor’s check is underway in the kindergarten, so it’s too early to draw any conclusions.
We said that in a kindergarten at Uralmash, a teacher hit a boy with a wire from a charger, and now investigators are talking to her. And in Serov, in a kindergarten, a three-year-old girl drank solvent.

On July 10, kindergarten No. 52 hosted the Ivan Kupala Day celebration. This holiday has been known among the Slavs since ancient times as the holiday of the Sun.
Pupils got acquainted with the history of this holiday, learned about traditional rituals, continued to get acquainted with the cultural heritage and traditions of the Russian people. There were fun relay races at the folklore festival. The pupils also led round dances, played, danced, and of course, the most interesting was the game with introductory pistols. The holiday turned out to be bright, noisy and cheerful. This day gave the children a lot of fun and positive emotions!

Summer has come!
Summer is a fun vacation, hiking in nature, swimming in the sea and many, many other interesting things and adventures.
On the first day of summer, the International holiday is celebrated – Children’s Day. This is not only a fun holiday for the children themselves, it is also a reminder to society of the need to protect the rights of the child, so that all children grow up happy, study, do what they love and become wonderful parents and citizens of their country in the future.
Joyfully, loudly, warmly and colorfully passed the main holiday of childhood – Children’s Day – in our kindergarten. Bright multi-colored balloons and fervent children’s songs met the kids at the entrance to the territory of the kindergarten from the very morning. And what is a holiday without guests? The bright “Sweetie” came to visit us for the holiday! The guys told her about the summer, and the Heroine taught the guys how to do fun exercises! He also played games with the children, danced and held entertaining sports relay races. In parting, Candy gave soap bubbles to all the kids. It was nice to see the joyful smiles of the kids and hear the cheerful children’s laughter. Happy holiday, our dear children!!! We wish you good health, wonderful mood, amazing discoveries and true friends!

On May 28, Graduation Party was held in kindergarten.
Graduation party in kindergarten is the most touching, most unforgettable of all holidays.
The word “prom” for everyone, without exception, evokes certain associations. This is parting, sadness, good parting words. Graduation ball is a symbol of the end of a wonderful “sadikovskaya” time. And this holiday should remain in the memory of graduates forever. Graduation in kindergarten is a very important holiday for children and their parents. He comes quite unexpectedly. It would seem that only yesterday parents brought their kids, and today it’s time to say goodbye to this cozy place, which has become a real second home for children.
On the 28th of May graduation holidays took place in our kindergarten. Preparation for them was very exciting and responsible. There were songs, dances, games and gifts at the celebration. Festive costumes for boys, dresses with fluffy skirts for girls decorated the holiday. Beautiful songs about kindergarten, about teachers, about parents excited everyone present. Incendiary dances from the first chords were accompanied by applause from the audience.
Behind are the days filled with fascinating journeys into the world of unknown, unsolved, amazing discoveries. Ahead is a difficult road to the world of adult school life. Every year, our kindergarten lets out not ordinary preschool children, but real talented and wonderful stars to school. Each child in the group is a little star. Everyone is talented and unique. We fell in love with them over the years we lived together, and today with pride and hope, sadness we let them go to school.
Our dear graduates, we wish you success in school.
Remember that our doors are always open for you
