Kindergarten children in the EU

Features of preschool education in European countries

Preschool education serves to socialize the kid; starting in September 2019, children in France above the age of three must attend kindergarten. In France, kindergarten (l'école maternelle) is a requirement for all children as of 2019 only. Even on holidays, they put in late hours! The kindergarten creed is: Enjoy cooking, art, and communication!

Access to kindergartens in the neighborhood where the kid resides must be made available. If they are unable to do so, the child must have access to a neighbor in certain situations. A kindergarten is referred to as a óvoda in Hungary.

In Hungary, preschools welcome children as young as three.

Spanish preschool attendance is entirely optional. Whether or not to enroll their child in kindergarten is a decision made by the parents. Preschools are still widely spread around the nation, though. Public and private organizations both exist. Escuela Infantil is the kindergarten's name.

There are three primary types of kindergartens in Germany: municipal (kommunale kita), employer-sponsored (betriebliche kita), and private (private kita). There is a restriction that the building must be no more than five kilometers from your place of living. The child's age is a key consideration. Children are divided into groups according to their ages: those under three go to kinderkrippe; those between three and seven go to kindergarten; and junior students go to after-school care (kinderhort).

Both public and private kindergartens exist. Private is reasonably priced. Multiple kindergartens accept applications at once. When the answer is given, you'll pick what's better and nearer to you. Everywhere has a nice attitude!

As there are no set kindergarten spaces like there are in schools in the Czech Republic, parents are free to select kindergartens that best suit their needs and those of their children. Parents must submit an application at a specific time, which is typically in April or May, for their child to start kindergarten (each kindergarten has several days during which you can apply, and these days are different for different kindergartens).

In Poland, kindergarten is available to children as young as three. A lot of thought goes into what a youngster needs to know and be able to do before starting school. As a result, a kindergartener learns how to articulate himself, engage in conversation, respond to inquiries, and explain how something happened.

The garden also fosters a child's interest in learning different languages and a thirst for knowledge about the customs and cultures of other peoples.
