By sending a child to kindergarten, parents hope for full-fledged care that meets all sanitary and pedagogical standards. If your baby every evening excitedly talks about how the day went, and in the morning is in a hurry to see friends, you are incredibly lucky. But in addition to the attentive staff, there are certain conditions for the existence of a kindergarten, which parents would be nice to know about them.
Most often, groups are formed of 10-15 people, although according to sanitary standards, it is possible to equip up to 25 children. Accordingly, a kindergarten can have from 1 to 5 age groups. If the number of children does not exceed 100 people, the kindergarten can be located on the first two floors of any public and residential building. Otherwise, it will require a separate room. Near the building of the kindergarten there should be a section closed from unauthorized persons with playgrounds according to the number of groups. Also, on the site, a sports ground, sandpits with clean sand, benches for rest and various green spaces are desirable. Around the territory belonging to the kindergarten, a fence in the form of a fence is required.
The kindergarten room must be equipped with a separate toilet and shower. For the nursery group, pots are provided for the number of children. Each child should have at their disposal a separate locker for storing outdoor, sports and spare clothes, as well as a sleeping place with bedding. At the same time, the staff's clothing and personal belongings are kept isolated. If possible, the kindergarten is equipped with a laundry and drying room. Otherwise, a contract is concluded with independent organizations for the regular washing of bed linen, towels, curtains, etc. Also, the kindergarten should be equipped with its own autonomous boiler room.
For greater safety, flights of flights of stairs are fenced off with gratings. On the windows of the second floor, if there is one, grilles are also needed that do not spoil the general appearance of the building. The walls of the rooms are painted in light soothing colors, and the ceiling is only white. This is necessary so that the child's nervous system is not overloaded. The floor should be covered with parquet or linoleum with a minimum possibility of slipping. Groups are equipped with toy cabinets, tables and chairs for creative and preparatory activities. Hypoallergenic indoor plants are desirable to create a pleasant atmosphere.
All wires and sockets must be securely hidden in special boxes and equipped with plugs. The use of additional electrical heating devices is not prohibited, but must be carried out exclusively under the supervision of adult kindergarten staff. Regular ventilation and maintenance of the optimum room temperature (18-20 degrees Celsius) are required. In order to maintain cleanliness, the premises in the kindergarten are cleaned daily, bed and table linen are changed once every 10 days, tableware is washed with special products after each meal.
Monitor the health of your child, regularly visit the kindergarten to personally verify the observance of sanitary and hygienic standards. Trust your intuition and often listen to your baby's stories about what is happening in the garden. And if doubts creep into your soul, try to dispel them by communicating with the leadership of the kindergarten.
