CONSULTATIONS OF "CICERO" CENTER
PREPARATION FOR STUDYING AT SCHOOL
GENERAL INFORMATION ON THE GROUP
The beginning of studying at school is an extremely important time for each child, parents and grandparents.
The success any child has at school, both in terms of learning, communication with peers, and in terms of psychological comfort, opportunity to open and realize its hidden talents and abilities, affects the child's further independent life.
Many parents are wondering if their child is ready for a new life at school. Can it be as active and cheerful as before in kindergarten or elsewhere? These are logical and topical questions: those children, who go to school without qualified preparation, are usually trapped in a very tough situation. Everything is changing in the child's life from the daily regimen, friends, main activities and external and internal environments. Playing activities are replaced with studies and physical and emotional load is also increasing. A seven year old child has to adapt to all these changes and that requires a lot of efforts. Moreover, children have to master new learning skills and enhance their learning abilities. Studying at school is systematic, so your child can't just leave everything at home, forget about it and go for a walk or do something else, or change activities as in kindergarten. Dear parents, the entrance into the first form is more difficult for the child's organism and mentality than the beginning of new employment. In case a child has some speech abnormalities and is unstable psychologically, it is highly recommended to start preparing for a systematic training in school from the age of 5 years old.
