Summary

Kindergarten provides the child with an introduction to the outside world and to various work activities appropriate to his stage of development. In order to select such activities, the kindergarten teacher must understand the child's growth, developmental, and learning processes both before he has entered school and during his kindergarten year. During this year, factual knowledge is expanded, reasoning and problem solving abilities are developed, and expanded social contacts and cooperative behavior are encouraged. The kindergarten teacher should both carefully plan the work periods which foster these developmental processes, and evaluate the behavioral results of each period. Thus, serving as an observer, reinforcer, positive critic, admirer, suggester, and nondirective guide, the teacher encourages a progressively more motivated and successful learner. (JM)
