— No single government program for all kindergarten we have. Programs lot. Each kindergarten can choose the one he likes. It is possible to modify the selected program. You can even write your own. But there are certain requirements of the Ministry of Education, which must be reflected in any program — the so-called «program-based». Nevertheless, the document leaves teachers a lot of opportunities for developing their own initiatives. It all depends on the desire, knowledge and abilities of educators (we call them «teachers»). Our kindergarten, for example, runs the program «Merry kindergarten and Friends» (the younger guys) and «At the kindergarten» (older children).
In addition, the kindergarten has a project multilateral international cooperation under the slogan «Small European — that’s me and you.» This project meets the requirements of the Ministry in terms of implementation of the program framework and at the same time provides the greatest opportunity for the development of cognitive abilities of children and children’s creativity.
