Child development center “Rostok” – What is group socialization? Or the classic model of learning lessons for toddlers
To begin, let’s answer the question: “why bring a child to such classes”?
You can reply in different ways.
Perhaps you brought your baby with these classes simply because you want him to develop better.
Perhaps you are concerned about any issues that you hope to find answers with the help of our developmental classes.
Questions faced by many parents:
What do I do if:
my child does not speak
my child has no experience with other children
my child does not always behave the way I want, there are times when I just don’t know how to react to his behavior
my child is afraid of everything new
my child sometimes shows aggression
my child won’t let go of me for a minute
I am unable to wean the baby from the nipples
I don’t know whether it’s time to teach a child to potty, and how to do it better
my child is not yet able to drink from a Cup
I don’t know what you can teach such a child
Can to be, you don’t have these issues, but even if you are absolutely satisfied with the development of your child, this will be very useful for the baby. Our experience shows that children who attended classes in such groups more successfully adapt in the future to the classroom than children of the same age who are not engaged in, or engaged in regular educational groups.
What these classes differ from regular educational groups?
Sometimes it happens that by visiting a few classes in the group of “Socialization”, the adults are a little confused. What happens in class too unusual for most parents. Many mothers believe that developmental activity is when the teacher teaches the children, and the children then consolidate their knowledge and skills in didactic games.
Indeed, such model classes familiar to us, it’s a traditional model. But the classes in the group “Socialization” combine two approaches: the traditional model and the classical group socialization. As with the traditional model, mainly, of course, dwell on group socialization.
Who came up with group socialization?
This model originated over fifty years ago.
While Soviet parents quietly took their babies to the nursery, in Europe and the USA rapidly developing studies of the interaction of mother and child in the family and the study of how the specifics of this interaction affect the development of personality of the baby.
American psychologist J. Bowlby developed the theory about the indispensability of maternal care, which has long hindered the development of the system of collective practice toddlers in the United States. Parents were afraid to send their children to the nursery, considering that there kids become mentally incompetent. Psychoanalysts all over the world worked to create a model that would allow to avoid the stress caused by the “tearing” of the small child from her mother. It was considered (and still is) that this stress is the cause of many psychological problems of the child.
French psychoanalyst, Francoise Dolto in Paris has opened a “Green house” where they will be accessible to parents with children under three years to ensure that the children experience with their peers in a caring and comfortable environment. The creators of “Green home” is not planning any lessons, the children were just playing with their mothers and each other. The only condition visit this group was that mom could not leave the baby alone.
Why the child needs to experience that?
Attending such a group, the child acquires a sense of security and confidence to the world. He gradually gets used to the fact that mom may not be there for him, and at the other end of the room or in another room, the child begins to get pleasure from self exploration. After visits to the “Green house” many mothers took the children to kindergarten, and toddlers easily adapted to new conditions, they knew that they will be interesting, and mom behind them will come back.
Such groups are successfully operating worldwide.
Than group socialization is different from a normal school?
And traditional of the group, and the group socialization has its advantages. In order to understand differences, we can compare these models.
