The fact that our preschool is named Sarodgini does not mean that we blindly follow the philosophy of A. Huxley. Nonetheless, we do our best to teach our students how to think, and how to analyze their own actions as well as the actions of other children. All of the bans we have possess their own explanations. We try to talk through every conflict, and to teach the children how to properly resolve such situations.
They learn communication skills and how to behave in society through participating in games on which early childhood development is based.
We understand how important the beginning of a child’s social life is; that is the foundation for future behavior. If a child at this age feels wronged, does not orient oneself in relation to other children, and does not receive their portion of respect and unconditional love, he or she may not develop confidence and feel unworthy of love well into adulthood. At the same time, if the child learns to defend his or her opinions property while simultaneously learning to respect the opinions and wishes of others, and maintains the belief that he or she is a good person whose needs and wants deserve to exist, that child will have an easier and brighter future.
The child wants the toy car another child is playing with, and wants it that very moment. The first step is to ask for the desired object, without touching it. If that fails, the next step is find the favorite toy of the child playing with the desired object, or some other car, and propose a trade. More often than not, this works. If not, then the next step is to count to 10 and play with the toy car one at a time, with each child taking a turn until the count of 10.
It is obvious that in order to fully communicate with other children, the child first must know the rules of social behavior. We teach our children to respect the interests of others as well as their own. We try to teach them to be open. We try to instill in them a sense of self-worth, of self-esteem, as well as a sense of respect for the personalities of others.
We understand that pride in one’s own achievements, like a healthy sense of self-worth, develops only when children do well at what they do, and when they feel that they can do something independently. A craft made without any assistance, a clean room by oneself, reading books, exiting a conflict situation with dignity, and familial pride in any such achievements of the child are some of the things that provide fertile soil for your children’s personalities and talents to grow and blossom in.
