From Early Childhood Education, a school began to be part of the child's life. To learn more with the learners of Early Childhood Education are stimulated in the School Create and Recreate, read the following interview with the coordinator Gabriela Valente. It explains in what way an evolutionary child and why it is so important, from an early childhood, the experience in the school environment.
As a pedagogical proposal of the School Create and Recreate Education and Education in Early Childhood Education?
The proposal is applied in all classes, but according to the age of the children. Stimuli and interventions are different. Within each class, respect the level of each child. There is no standard. It is not because a child is in the infantile II that it needs to be within the volume of writing, reading or drawing. We understand that every child has his time. Through the stimuli they receive, it gives as answers to the needs of us to be able to understand it. It is from reactions that we launch as interventions that child needs.
Is the school's attention to children individual?
Each child has a different way of attending. Therefore, a people, first, to a look at the profile of each child, to a school proposal applied consistently. I have a difficulty in receiving a teaching proposal and a form of intervention. More than once, each of them within their individuality, I will have opportunity to develop strategies for all the learned, the lines of reasoning. Together with teacher, how children learn to learn. This is a skill that they develop throughout their lives and since they are aware of what learning is. Along with a teacher they make hypotheses, they are allowed to think and put into practice in their thinking. As children will be welcomed, but also for the learning of colleagues. Everything that is a process, is not a day, with our pedagogical projects, like interventions in the classroom.
What evolutions do the children of kindergarten usually present?
We do not have a standard result. The school offers the projects, the interventions, the stimuli, the educational environment itself, but each child evolves in its own way. Every child has prior knowledge. At school, they are worked. However, the one that continues to be stimulated at home, learns more. Children who find parents in reading situations, who see the family interested in their school life, will certainly be better able to evolve in learning. For a better result, school and family have to be partners.
Do the apprentices already leave reading in Early Childhood Education?
We have children who in the infant II, usually four years, already have the first signs of reading. Virtually all the apprentices of the children III are already going to the first year of Elementary School reading. This is because in all classes, children are always in a reading situation, they are always being challenged.
Why is school life important in the early years of childhood?
The world today is very different from before. Parents work hard. There is virtually a requirement for children to be cared for so that parents can secure resources to provide their children with a more comfortable life. In this context, school is the most favorable and appropriate environment. The early years of life are the most important for personality development. The child at this stage needs many positive references, needs to incorporate ethical and moral values, needs to assimilate the rules of coexistence. Of course, it is not at five years that the child develops personality, this takes a while. But it is in early childhood, up to age five, that it absorbs what the other offers. The other, in this case, her reference, that is, the teachers, the parents, the family, the colleagues. It is from these relationships that the child develops his own way of being. It's a great exchange. The child incorporates ethical and moral values and at the same time develops his own way of living. That is why it is so important that it is under the care of trained people.
