Classification of kindergartens by an orientation - what they happen

Kindergarten - the most widespread type of the public preschool educational institution. In it is mute supervision, leaving and improvement, training and education of children is provided. Kindergartens differ in different educational programs.

Four types of kindergartens

Besides classification by an orientation, kindergartens are divided into four big groups: municipal, departmental, private (commercial) and house (family). Depending on a type of kindergarten both the program of training, and the number of children in group, and quality of food and toys, and even in many respects the psychological atmosphere will vary.

Municipal kindergartens is our own childhood. A lot of things in them depend on the manager or the director - under equal conditions some kindergartens are known in all the district, and there parents try to get in a queue for several years. In the state garden there are “a general education program“, walks, physical culture, a molding, drawing and music. Some of them provide paid additional services from which you have the right to refuse even if all other parents in group want to use them.

  1. In many kindergartens the real turns are built. To give there the three-year-old child, it is necessary to get in a queue right after the birth - and it, unfortunately, not exaggeration. It is possible to get in a queue at once in several kindergartens that there was time for the final choice.
  2. Learn
  3. whether there is in kindergarten a so-called “adaptation group“. It is intended for small kids which never visited a garden earlier.
  4. Learn working hours of kindergarten. All state gardens share on 12 - sentries, 14 - hour and round-the-clock. There is regime of ten - or five-hour stay. By the way, if tutors try to demand from parents that those took away kids earlier - it is their personal initiative to which they have no right. So-called “short days“ - too violation of the law, kindergarten has to work equally in all working days.
  5. Pay attention to the number of children in group and the number of tutors. In municipal kindergartens there are violations of Standard situation about PEI (preschool educational institutions) according to which in group there have to be no more than 20 children and 2 tutors - one in the first change and one in the second, together with them the assistant teacher (nurse) works. These are regular employees. But sometimes from - for insufficient financings of such assistant can not be and all functions of the nurse are undertaken by the tutor.

Departmental kindergartens are not controlled directly by Department of Education, their programs and orders are defined by the enterprises and the organizations in whose department there is a kindergarten. Such kindergartens are more expensive, but discounts are provided to children of staff of the enterprise. Now it is a little departmental gardens, and their quantity is reduced.

of the Rule of the choice of a garden same, as well as in the previous case.

we Look for ideal kindergarten

  1. the Very first option - most important and the most banal: to interrogate parents whose children visit nearby gardens. They will tell you, how well or badly look after children whether kids of teachers love as the garden what there toys, and there are a lot more important details which more nobody will tell you is equipped.
  2. Pay attention to the kindergarten territory - as far as it pure whether it is encumbered by garbage whether sandboxes and a swing are broken. Naturally, in the territory there has to be a playground, and the territory is fenced, and the gate conducting on it is closed - be not surprised, but many kids are so inquisitive that try to escape out of limits of kindergarten.
  3. Get acquainted with personnel, look at a situation in which there will be your child. Whether there are enough toys? Whether it is cozy indoors? Whether the teacher is pleasant to you? Surely talk to the doctor who has to be in kindergarten.
  4. Learn
  5. from the manager according to what program occupations, the number of children in group are conducted, ask to tell you about occupations and about personnel which carries out them.
If a choice of kindergarten is made by

Let`s say you already chose a suitable garden, and this garden - municipal. What documents will be required to write down there the child?

  1. the Medical record 20 with a mark about inoculations: poliomyelitis, AKDS, parotitis, measles, reaction to Mant (made no more than a year ago). Analyses: blood (general), urine, enterobioz, on eggs the worm (made no more than 10 days ago). Marks of doctors: the orthopedist, the ENT SPECIALIST, the oculist, the neuropathologist, the stomatologist, the pediatrician (epikriz and the direction in group of health).
  2. Birth certificate.
  3. the Insurance policy

“Do not have
  • of places!“
  • A what to do in case you already collected all necessary documents, brought them to the manager and heard what in kindergarten there are no places? It is a situation typical at the moment as the majority of gardens is crowded, and even lists of people on the waiting list are made for 1 - 3 years ahead. In that case it is necessary to address to district administration of education, and there to you will surely pick up other kindergarten closer to the house where there are empty seats.

    to avoid this situation, get up on turn in advance. It can be made officially - now in each kindergarten there are “Books of the accounting of future pupils“. As soon as the kid was born, you come to the pleasant garden and write down the child in this book. The manager will issue you the notice of registration and further will report when the group is completed. There are also preferential categories admitted to kindergarten out of turn are children from large families, children of the unemployed, children of refugees and immigrants, children of the studying mothers, children of disabled people 1 and 2 groups, the children who are under guardianship, children, one of parents of which is on military service, children of the lonely working parents, children of judges, prosecutors and investigators, children of employees of educational institutions of system of Department of Education, and also children whose brothers and sisters already visit this garden.

    to Pay or not to pay


    One more widespread problem is a so-called “sponsor`s“ help. In some gardens all demand new and new financial receipts from parents almost each week. Actually neither tutors, nor the manager have no right to take from you some money besides payment for a garden made according to the receipt. If you do not agree with their requirements - call in district administration.
