Kindergarters and School

How is your kindergartener learning?  There is a lot of talk about what kindergarteners’ should learn and what they are really learning.  Does your child get to learn through play and exploring, or are they just taking test and learning things that older children should be learn? What do you expect from your child, regarding what they should be able to learn?  Have you asked your child if they enjoy school, and do they tell all about their day?

I think parents should watch out for school burnout, and pushing children too early.  There needs to be a balance, and we need to help them find that balance.  The child’s natural way of learning is through exploring and playing.  So, ask yourself is exploring, a part of test taking, and does it really help?  I think educators are starting to understand, that children do not learn by tests, and that they need to get back basic and good old Child’s play.  Please give your thoughts.
