Graduation in kindergarten – training features

Graduation matinee in kindergarten is one of the first solemn events in the life of every child. The success of the holiday, the positive emotions of children and the impressions of parents depend on the proper organization, the competence of teachers, and the level of training. How to organize graduation in kindergarten so that everyone is satisfied, and what aspects of its conduct should be considered? We will help you understand all the intricacies and give children unforgettable memories.

BASIC STAGES OF THE HOLIDAY
As a rule, the celebration of the end of the kindergarten includes several parts that allow children to demonstrate their talents and knowledge and skills acquired in the preschool, teachers to “report” on the work done, and parents to thank the teachers and the kindergarten administration:

greetings and congratulatory speeches from the administration and the teaching staff (often after this, parents give them letters of thanks);
performance of children;
giving gifts for children and teachers;
“Sweet table” and tea drinking, buffet for parents, educators.

By the way, the final part of the celebration (“sweet table”) can be held both within the walls of the educational organization, and in any other place suitable for these purposes (for example, in a cafe or restaurant).

FEATURES OF PREPARING THE GRADUATE IN THE KINDERGARTEN
ORGANIZATION OF A CREATIVE COMMITTEE FOR PREPARING FOR THE HOLIDAY
The composition of the creative committee for the preparation of graduation includes both the teachers and the administration of the kindergarten, and the parents of the pupils of the preschool institution. In other words, all interested parties are represented in it, each of which has its own vision of the organization of the celebration. Therefore, committee members should immediately distribute responsibilities among themselves and create an indicative graduate preparation plan. This is necessary, firstly, in order to avoid discontent and misunderstandings, and secondly, for the clear implementation of the tasks set, in order to avoid fuss and imperfections immediately before the matinee.

It is also important to at least approximately calculate the time required to complete each specific task (from buying decor to rehearsing the script). It is desirable that 1-2 people complete each task (for example, purchasing food for a sweet table, creating and printing letters of appreciation, collecting money and buying gifts for educators, decorating the assembly hall).

ORIGINAL DECOR
In order for the children to remember the holiday and give them unforgettable emotions, pay special attention to the design of the assembly hall, porch and the garden. In addition to standard balloons, posters, flowers and ribbon bows, try to use something more interesting.

For example, the front door can be decorated as a fabulous gateway to the magical realm and in the same style decorate the corridor leading to the group (if location allows). And from the sweet table, organized not in the hall, but on the veranda, on a secluded part of the garden under the crown of trees, the children will be delighted! Of course, such things will require much more attention, effort, time, and sometimes money from the members of the organizing committee, but your children will have the most fun and non-standard graduation in kindergarten.
PHOTO AND VIDEO
It would seem that in our time the issue of photo and video shooting is not a problem, since each of us has, if not photo, video equipment, then a mobile phone with a sufficiently “strong” camera. But it’s not always the case. After all, the finished material should not only be quality processed, but also professionally shot. In addition, it is highly undesirable to invite a person who specializes in working with adults as a video operator.

Shooting photos and videos of a children’s holiday has its own characteristics, which an “adult” operator may simply not know about. For example, only a “child” photographer knows that:

preschool children need to be removed almost at the level of children’s heads (you can say on bent legs), and not keep the camera at the level of their height;
you need to capture all the children, and not just those who are in front;
attention must be paid not only to shooting children, but also to the host (so that it can be seen normally, and not just a part of the head, half-body or face close-up).
Such nuances are very important, and these are far from trifles that can be “sacrificed”. After all, the footage is not just beautiful photo and video frames, but the memory of one of the most important stages in the life of every child, as well as the opportunity to return to a happy childhood again and again.
