Values Education In Pre-Schools
VALUES EDUCATION IN PRE-SCHOOLS
Regarding all areas of development, preschool years have an important place both in terms of persistence of the acquired behaviours and being the basis for many behaviours in the coming years. Although there are counter-theses, considering the superior characteristics of children in this age group such as intense attention, effective observation ability, readiness to learn, shaping a new world, mental activity, it is necessary to examine these first years of life with all its developmental features.
As a result of the mutual relationship with other individuals in the early stages, the behaviours acquired, although temporarily, are not only short-term behaviours but also long-term and somehow affect the future life of the child. The values and attitudes acquired in childhood continue to shape their expectations and affect their decisions throughout life. Likewise, it is possible to transfer these acquired values to the society after a certain period of time. As the starting point of moral development, the development of 'role-playing ability' is shown
Early childhood is the first period in which knowledge about values is laid. Values develop from different sources, and it is important to have a wide variety of experiences, especially in young children. Children learn information about values throughout their lives, but initial information is gained early. This process continues for life, but fundamental values are formed in the first years of life. Some of the goals of early childhood education are to work with children in harmony with others, to love others, to express their feelings properly, to be close to friends, to be kind, etc. to gain positive behaviour. Lack of life skills can affect children's interactions and relationships with each other, peers and others. Positive early experiences can provide the necessary basis for the healthy development of subsequent behaviour and thought processes.
Values are the real factors behind our attitudes and assumptions. Therefore, it is important to adopt the values well and gain them from a young age. For this, education, school, environment and interaction between these factors play a very important role.
