Do you remember the first time you went to school when you were five years old? What were the emotions you felt? Do you recall that at all? Kindergarten is an important time in a child’s life, and there is a day to celebrate that, which is National Kindergarten Day.
April 21st is when we celebrate the time when kids start getting used to the school environment. We are not talking about preschool as that is only found in nursery schools and daycares. We are talking about when kids begin to go to an actual elementary school from four to five years old. That is when they enter kindergarten. Kindergarten is an essential step in a child’s education. That is because kindergarten is the preliminary step for children for when they officially begin going to school.
Kindergarten is much more about small children learning their ABCs and 123s, as they learned those things in preschool. Kindergarten is also a lot more than teaching children to read and write, which are still very important. However, kindergarten is a time for kids to learn about socialization, understanding the rules, and a time when kids can express their creativity. They need to know those things early on in their lives as it prepares them for the real world. And creativity is important for kids to utilize as it helps them develop problem-solving skills for when they will need them as older kids and adults. Therefore, kindergarten is an essential step for a child’s development as it introduces the real world.
History Of National Kindergarten Day
April 21st is Kindergarten day because it is the birthday of the kindergarten founder, which was Friedrich Wilhelm August Frobel, in Germany. Frobel was not just a teacher but was taught by Johan Frobel as he was the one who created the foundation for progressive education. He knew that kids would learn through play, and that was the purpose of kindergarten. Therefore, the first kindergarten class was in 1837. Kindergarten literally means a children’s garden, and that garden is intended for kids to play so they can learn, and that type of playing will prepare them for life.
