The Importance of Kindergarten
Education is the foundation of a country. Some people focus on elementary, high school, and university education, but they ignore early childhood education. A kindergarten exists for early childhood education. In fact, there are three reasons to say that kindergarten is also important to all social systems. These reasons are benefits for country, benefits for parents and benefits for children.
First of all, kindergarten affects the development of the country. Because of kindergarten, people can continue to go to work; the competition of the country doesn’t decrease. Also, the economic development of the country will increase. The country will be prosperous. Another reason is about crime rate. When our children go to kindergarten, they accept education. Their teachers will let them know what they can do and what they can’t do. And a kindergarten will help decrease criminal action. So kindergarten has a great effect on the development of the country.
Besides, kindergarten is also important for parents. When they want to go to visit their friends, go shopping, go to see a movie, or go to other places like supermarket, post office, bank, etc., taking children is inconvenient. At the same time, parents don’t worry about their children. They can go everywhere they want, even go to work, because their children are in kindergarten. Furthermore, kindergarten provides education for parents. Some parents don’t know how to educate their children, because it’s the first time for them to be parents. Moreover, they don’t know how to get along with their children well. In the kindergarten, there are professional teachers who have known how to educate children and get along with children well, and they can also tell parents how to do that. They know how to teach children in good ways. Therefore, for parents kindergarten is a place that not only takes care of their children, but also provides education to parents.
Another importance of kindergarten is for children. When children go to kindergarten, their teachers teach them a lot of things. There are many differences between home and kindergarten. They have to learn to share things with other children. In the kindergarten, some things like toys, books, playground, art materials, etc. are for everyone; a child can’t own these things by himself. For example, if a girl is reading a book, and a boy also wants to read that book, the boy has to think a solution to this problem. The boy needs to express himself to the girl. Maybe they can share with each other, or maybe the boy has to wait until the girl finished reading the book. Learning to wait is also important to children, because we are living in groups not alone. We have to learn to respect other people. Thus, in the kindergarten children not only learn to share and wait, but also express themselves. Moreover, they make a lot of friends.
To summarize, these examples show why kindergarten is so important. It plays an important role to all social systems. It makes social systems operate normally, even better. Every part of social systems is well taken care for. Therefore, we can’t ignore the importance of kindergarten.
