This week BabyS started kindergarden. So far it’s been a very plesant experience.
We started with being greeting by the sweetest employees. BabyS had gotten all the lockers and storage compartments labeled with her name.
- The first day was a short stay. The employees that will be “handeling” BabyS observed her interaction with other children, adults and playtime. While us parents filled in forms and got alot of information.
- The second day BabyS stayed a few hours without parents. She stayed for lunch before we picked her up.
- Today she is having a longer stay, including naptime. The nap is still to come…so don’t know how that will turn out.
I must admit I had my doubts as to leave my baby in such a big kindergarten – approx. 150 babies/toddlers. I got my worries eased when I went for a visit. Eventhough the kindergarten is large, BabyS belongs to a “base” – the kindergarten is devided into bases – that is only 9 children, ages 1-2 years (at the moment its about 50/50 of 1 year and 2 year olds). With 3 employees in BabyS’ base, Akershus festning, the babies/toddlers should be taken good care of.
