That comment of Eva made me also curious.
I have a 20 months old daughter. She is going to kindergarten in Tarapoto. What I absolutely do not like is how they teach girl from 2 years and older to dance and look seductive. And also what they call 'modelling'. Maybe that is just a 'Selva' thing, but it is not the mindset I would like to give my daughter.
What I found out, and what I don't like is that Peruvian kindergardens (preliminary schools), try to 'teach' the children. By that I mean learning tricks, and preferable in groups. (for example draw within the lines!)
Most of then claim they teach English and some even have netbooks. Friend of us send a little boy to one of these schools and they are very proud that the boy could say rojo/red, azul/blue.
In my opinion this type of dog training does not optimize the development of the little child.
The kindergaten schould be a place where children can interact and play and where professional teachers stimulate the development of the child by offering extra challenges in their play.
Probably this is just wishful thinking, but lucky enough I have found one that is more stimulating that the others.
They other day however they surprised me. On Friday, they gave us an note with instructions for homework! Since the 20 month old is not able to do this, that meant we were suppose to do homework!(which I refused). Is this a normal thing in Peru?
Was curious what about how children interact here you have a problem with, that was an interesting comment. I am around Peruvian children frequently but don't understand enough of the language to really pick up the dynamics at all.
"No, she as well adapted to the Peruvian way a living and how children her age interact and behave. Something I really have a problem with. "
