ALL parents can help

ALL parents can help their children before they start school and while they are going to school. 2.1 Your child’s first years after birth are the most important for his or her development. Scientific studies have shown that children learn most intensively during the first few years after their birth which has an impact on the rest of their lives. The better your child develops before attending school, the easier it will be for your child to learn at school. Before attending school, most children can recount events or stories, play with forms, count, draw, tinker, play, run, climb, jump, and much more. This helps your child learn a number of important things. 2.2 Day-care facility (Kindertagesstätte – KITA) can help with your child’s development. Your child is not obligated to attend day-care. It is up to you whether or not you send your child to day-care. As of August 2013, all parents in Germany have a right to send their children to day-care and a place in the nursery must be given to a child that has attained 1 year of age if requested. Attending day-care is very beneficial to the social development of your child. If your child does not speak German at home, going to day-care is especially important. At day-care your child will learn German quickly and will have fewer problems with the German language by the time he or she enrols in school. … 10 …

2.3 Parents have a major influence on the success of their children at school. A scientific study conducted by the Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA) found that parents contribute more than 50 per cent to their children’s success at school. A parent has more influence on the development of a child’s learning than do teachers or class instruction. However, the influence can be positive or negative. If you take school seriously and support your child, your child will be able to learn more effectively. If you find school unimportant and do not support your child, your child will most likely be less successful at school. This means that the success of your child is more dependent on you than on the school or teachers. 2.4 A year before your child will attend school, you need to decide whether your child will remain in day-care or attend preschool. In the year prior to your child starting school, you have the option of sending your 5-year old child to preschool (Vorschule). Each preschool is organised differently. Many preschools are integrated into day-care facilities. There are also preschools that are integrated into primary schools. Attendance at preschool is voluntary. Things that favour your child’s attendance at preschool: Your child is not quite ready for school and needs some additional help; your child is very advanced and needs more of a challenge and would like to learn more at a faster pace; or your child needs to ease into the transition from day-care to school. Things that do not favour your child’s attendance at preschool: It is sometimes good for some children to spend a year longer at play and to develop outside of a ridged school structure. In any event, this is a personal decision which is best resolved in consultation with day-care and preschool staff. … 11 …
