Whether to enroll their children in early education classes or not, I believe every family’s parents who have acceptable financial conditions have struggled.
First of all, let’s take a look at the what that everyone is struggling with: square: of course, let the children go to the early education class! Improve children’s intelligence and win at the starting line. Can contact children and exercise social skills. Early education classes are more professional and can guide parents. Can let children learn skills. Teachers can cultivate children’s good habits. Can let me spare time to concentrate on accompanying children. The children around us go, we also want to go. Opposition: I don’t plan to let children go to early education classes! Early education classes are too expensive! Learn again after school, play before school. Early education classes are mixed, so it is better to learn by oneself. Don’t use adults’ thinking to restrict children’s development. Children should have a happy childhood. We are also quite good now that we didn’t attend early education classes. One-on-one company and teaching at home are better. Look at these remarks, are you guessing your mind? Before the little angel came to the world, we had already made up our minds that as long as he was healthy and happy. However, as all the children around you go to the early education class, then they can read and count, and look very smart. Compared with the baby at home who has not started to learn in what, your initial idea gradually wavers: Do you want to go to the early education class or not? Why don’t you go? Isn’t it just spending money? Save it and you will come out! If the child loses at the starting line, the child may complain about me for the rest of his life. This is why a 2009 survey in Guangzhou found that 70% of parents said, Useful or not, All plan to enroll their children in early education classes. Early education, It is very important. [Three years old to look older] There is a scientific basis. According to the theory of cranial nerve science, Synapse is the key part of information transmission between neurons, The more synapses and nerve channels there are, The more it helps the human brain to perform complex functions. Newborn babies have 5 billion synapses in their brains. The number of synapses in 1-year-old children increased 20 times, The number of synapses in the brain of 3-year-old children is about twice that of adults. Since then, the number of synapses has decreased continuously, At the age of 14, The number of synaptic connections in children is roughly the same as that in adults. Therefore, As the saying goes, Seven years old], There is a certain scientific basis. Research found that, Learning can prompt synapses to establish new neural connections, Unenhanced synapses will be deleted. Therefore, During the rapid development of synapses in infants aged 0-3 years old, Give them rich stimulation appropriately, It can promote the development of synapses and the establishment of nerve channels. So as to strengthen their learning ability and promote their future learning development. 2. Foreign countries also attach importance to early childhood education. In fact, not only does early childhood education in China present a scene of enthusiasm, but other countries also attach great importance to the education of children aged 0-3. For example, the former Soviet Union has advocated early sensory training education for infants since the 1960s. The United States launched an early education fund budget bill of up to 3 billion US dollars in 1998. Many European countries have drawn up plans or laws to fully implement early education for 0-3 years old. Among them, Britain has set up an official early education website (www.early-education.org.uk) affiliated to the British Ministry of Education. If our parents say, “I didn’t let you go to what early education classes then, but now I have grown up and are doing well, why do you have to spend money on early education classes for your children?” ] We would say: Times are different, Once upon a time, human beings still drank blood from shavings. Now even the food is more and more exquisite, Of course, we should also keep pace with the times in the education of our children.] Early education, It does not mean that early education classes are usually in our understanding. Education is school education, Carry your schoolbag on your back, Go to the school classroom and sit down. Acquire knowledge in the teacher’s classroom teaching. However, this form is not necessarily suitable for children aged 0-3. Teaching knowledge such as counting and reading can only form short-term advantages. There is no guarantee that children will always be ahead of others in schoolwork for a long time to come. Moreover, For lectures or training that claim to improve children’s intelligence, There is no scientific research to confirm it, Official organizations such as the American Academy of Pediatrics and the American Neurological Association have publicly criticized programs that claim to improve infants’ intelligence. The purpose of early childhood education, It is to promote the cognitive development of children’s brains by giving children various appropriate and rich stimuli. Therefore, early education can of course be carried out by family members and does not need to rely entirely on various early education institutions. From this perspective, early education is not equal to early education classes! Do you want to go to the early education class? Although parents play a vital role in the early education of their children, But the reality we have to face is: We hope to have more professional people to help our children develop. We hope to provide better educational conditions for our children. Therefore, Clove mother felt that if economic conditions permit, and do not have unrealistic hopes for early education classes, it is quite good to take the children to play, specifically according to the situation of the family and early education institutions to choose. However, before enrolling in early education classes, parents should first ask themselves three questions: 1. Do children like early education classes? You can take your child to listen to some free early education classes. If your child likes this new environment, new guides and new playmates, then he can better learn from play and exploration. 2. The purpose of attending early education classes is what? If you feel that this is the only way to force yourself to put down your job and cell phone, It is possible to concentrate on playing with children for two hours, or to know other children and parents through early education classes and expand children’s social circle. However, it is unrealistic to expect early education classes to replace the role of family education, cultivate children’s good habits, and even hope that early education classes can improve children’s intellectual development. If only all the people around you go to enroll in the class, it is even more unnecessary to let the children enroll in the class. 3. Is it necessary to go to the early education class? If you can get the correct parenting knowledge concept through reading books, reading documents and paying attention to various reliable information sources, you can accompany your children well in your spare time, create a good environment for your children to socialize and learn, and you don’t have to go to early education classes. How to choose early education classes? Next, if you have decided to go to the early education class, Then the following are the factors that must be considered when selecting classes: 1. Qualifications and facilities. It depends on whether the early childhood education institution has a license to run a school (the authenticity can be queried on the Internet). It also depends on whether there are safe passages, safe measures, safe toys and teaching aids, bright, comfortable and clean environment. 2. Educational philosophy. Examine the educational philosophy of early childhood education institutions, the cultural atmosphere of the whole institution, See if it is suitable for their families and children. Parents can chat with early childhood education teachers, Understand its professionalism and educational philosophy. 3. Curriculum design. Ask teachers about the setting of curriculum content, See if it is based on the characteristics of the baby’s growth and development at each stage. Parents should choose the appropriate class according to their children’s age and skill level. Rather than encouraging the growth of young people. 4. Teachers. The level of teachers is the key factor to measure the professionalism of early childhood education institutions. Early childhood education teachers need to have professional knowledge and professional certificates, But also have love and responsibility. Even if one-on-one teaching cannot be done, It is also necessary to see how many students a teacher brings at most. Because this determines that within the same time, Teacher’s attention and devotion to students. 5. Brand reputation. Generally speaking, Large well-known early childhood education institutions with scientific, systematic and complete education systems will be more secure. If not the best option, At least it won’t be bad. The focus of early childhood education is on parents. In fact, Early education classes cannot replace family education at all. Therefore, Whether you enroll your child in an early education class or not, We should strengthen and attach importance to family education. Parents are not necessarily the best teachers for their children. But the family must be the first school for the children. In fact, The focus of early childhood education is not on children, But parents: Only by learning the skills to promote children’s cognitive development, Only in this way can children grow up better in daily life practice. If parents hope that their children can make visible progress and solve all problems after attending early education classes, then this utilitarian mentality will also make teachers in early education institutions change their teaching methods and contents to meet the needs of parents. Or cause parents to see that their children have not changed significantly when they attend early education classes, And become anxious, Even put pressure on children, Then the early education class will become a burden on both sides. Even if the teachers in the early education class can give professional guidance to children, However, a few hours of classes per week cannot really change the environment in which children grow up. After all, The growth of a child comes not only from the book knowledge he has learned, but also from the life skills taught by his parents, the interpersonal relationships in the family, the demonstration of adults setting an example, the language dialogue with life scenes, and even outdoor activities and social activities outside the family. Is it feasible to teach early at home? Of course it is feasible, this is what the real experts said! Based on the research results of some researchers, Meng Ma put forward several reliable suggestions for all parents, Let’s have a look: 1. Provide your baby with the opportunity to explore the world. This is the most important of several suggestions. Children [learn] by [doing], Therefore, they need to explore the opportunities of the environment. Parents need to make sure that the environment contains all kinds of toys, books, There are other stimuli: Such as interpersonal opportunities, the ability to try different foods, Of course, the most indispensable thing is the vast nature. What needs to be remembered is that There is no need to stick to the child 24 hours a day, It is best to ensure safety, Give the child independent space and time to explore. 2. React quickly to the baby and try to talk to the baby. instead of [talking to] them, asking questions, Pay attention to their reactions, And provide opportunities for further communication. Don’t give up the opportunity to communicate with babies because you don’t understand them. When you change diapers or dress them, Babies will listen to what you say and sing. British early childhood education experts believe that A three-month-old baby can start talking to you, And all you have to do is stop after saying a few words. Leave a pause for him to speak. Next, You will find that they respond to you with sounds and actions. 3. Read to your baby Although the baby may not understand the meaning of the words you say, But they will respond to your tone and the intimacy provided by reading. And, Reading with your baby can also make your baby have a pleasant experience of reading, So as to enlighten the reading habit that lasts for a lifetime. 4. Accompany him to play with toy shops are always full of toys. Some toys have been dubbed [the best ever], Such as ringing bells, building blocks, picture books that cannot be torn apart, dolls and toys for dragging. But for babies, The best toy is actually you: A playful, careful adult, It also [loaded] with sounds, eyes, ears, hands, knees, And understand the baby’s preferences. Some plastic toys are boasted as necessary supplies to promote the baby’s brain development and parents’ early education. It is best to be skeptical of these slogans, Because most of them are false propaganda. 5. Let the baby move. If parents always let them sit in the baby seat or pram, they will not be able to learn all kinds of physical activities. Therefore, on the premise of ensuring safety, let the baby try all kinds of activities, such as climbing, such as all kinds of movements, etc.
