What does the Child Development Centre
Institutions with the proud name of "development center", it would seem to be different from conventional education. And different ... Mostly, the rates for the services provided. In general, their work programs with their children are consistent with those implemented in public institutions of pre-school and school education. But in most of these institutions have at least one qualitative difference from general education: offering a fairly wide range of services, they are more or less retain the specialization, ie It focused on certain activities with certain groups of children.
We can formulate not very hard, but, nevertheless, a clear classification of child development centers according to several criteria. Among these features, first of all, it can be called the age of the target groups of children, which can be dosadovskim, pre-school and school. Program works with children aged dosadovskogo mainly focus on training self-care children, instilling them simple skills with peers and adults interaction and communication, familiarize them with the peculiarities of life in society, different from the family. For preschool children, on the foreground of the formation of their skills that will provide them with an easier transition to school. Such skills can be divided into interactive, informative and self-control skills. The main emphasis here is on the development of general and linguistic abilities of the child, the development of its creative and cognitive activity. Also, children of this age are vaccinated basic ethical concepts, such as "Friends", "mutual", "respect" and etc. For pupils of the centers can offer a variety of programs that the child can choose together with their parents, without being limited to strict time limits and mandatory training program. Firstly, it can be a variety of hobby groups, sports clubs, specialized training programs, etc. Secondly, these centers offer additional children or in-depth training on the subjects of compulsory school curriculum. Some centers may offer tutoring services and training of children school age to pass the exam. The second important criterion that can be classified as child development centers, is specialization and adaptation of their programs for children with different physical and mental characteristics, as well as appropriate training of teaching staff of the institution. For those not completely healthy children it can be special complexes of physical exercises that are tailored to the individual child diseases, children with distinctive mental characteristics it can be a lesson for the social adaptation of the child in the form of training, role plays, psychological assistance to the child and his family, if necessary -. work with your doctor, a speech therapist, etc. Such programs can be developed for the so-called gifted children. Unfortunately, they have much more in common with the children, something flawed than to "safely", "normal". And the main problem for them is not the speedy development of special abilities that may have manifested in early childhood. Just often it develops so that this category of children receive the least common of parental love, affection and care. To them it makes excessive demands, often for their back-breaking. Hence, emotional instability, feelings of alienation, of being misunderstood, of loneliness, physical and mental exhaustion, and much more, which can lead to very serious mental disorders. Therefore, along with programs for the development of special abilities of paramount importance for these children put social and psychological adaptation, which will allow them to be really talented, harmonious, full-fledged human beings. There are other criteria for the classification of child development centers, but they are beyond the scope of a single article. Be that as it may, when deciding to send their children to a particular educational institution, you should not rely on advertising, praise from its official site and "intimate" conversations with the director. Read about this CRR posts on parenting forums, talk to pupils, read all of the legal documents governing its activities, please consult with independent educators and psychologists. Visit the "open day" and the open events held in any UBV, in the end, ask your child if he wants to be in the walls of this institution, and only then make a final decision.
