How to determine if the child is ready for kindergarten?

The "home" child gets used to a certain mode of the day, to the way of feeding, laying, he has formed relationships with his parents, he is emotionally attached to them. On how the child gets used to the new conditions, the further development of the child and in the future his successful stay in kindergarten and in the family will depend.

This stage in a child’s life does not always go smoothly. Psychological unpreparedness of the baby to leave the family can cause him the so-called "adaptation syndrome."

How quickly and painlessly the child will get used to the new stage in his life depends on the degree of his preparedness for the transition to conditions other than at home.

How to determine whether the baby is ready to enter kindergarten? To do this, you can answer the following questions. Moreover, it is best to do this 3-4 months before the planned admission to kindergarten, so that, if necessary, there is time for correcting omissions in preparing the child for a preschool educational institution.

Here is a list of questions:

1. Does the child know how to fall asleep independently, without motion sickness, bottles / nipples, etc.

2. Does the baby know how to eat and drink independently?

3. Do you ask for a pot?

4. Is there interest in toys, new items at home and in unfamiliar surroundings?

5. Does the activity show interest in learning?

6. Is it playable?

7. Is it initiative in relationships with adults?

8. Is initiative in relationships with children?

9. Does the family stay painlessly without family members?

10. Does the child prefer to play with peers, and not with a toy?

11. Are the child's emotional reactions observed when interacting with a peer (laughter, joy, crying, anger)?

12. Is the child taking the initiative to attract peer attention?

13. Does the child need to interact with other children?

14. Do you try to dress and undress yourself?

15. Are there any negative habits (sucks a finger, swings, etc.)?

16. Does it ever happen that a child shows signs of “cruelty” to other children (jerks, tweaks other children, beats)?

Positive answers to questions 1–14 and negative answers to 15–16 indicate that the child is 100% ready for entry into kindergarten. But do not despair if your answers do not coincide with the proposed sample. In this case, you need to carefully analyze your answers and draw up a child development program for the near future, determining what needs to be corrected in his behavior.

Admission of a child to kindergarten is a serious concern for adults. But only parents, for their part, can do everything possible to make the beginning of a new stage in the life of a baby more safely.
