Specialists of pre-school education, kindergarten teachers from Bergen came on a working visit to the International University of Central Asia. The program of the visit was discussed in details so that the guests had the opportunity not only to discuss further steps of cooperation, to get acquainted with kindergartens in Tokmok and Bishkek, but also to see the sights of Kyrgyzstan.
On May 25, 2022, a round table was held at the university on the topic: “Active knowledge of the world by a child in preschool organizations in Kyrgyzstan and Norway”. Heads of preschool institutions, specialists and experts involved in the training and retraining of preschool education specialists were invited. Teachers of the Institute of Humanities Asekova Zh.D. and Valvakov R.V. spoke about the peculiarities of training specialists in preschool education and kindergartens in Norway. They discussed and talked about sore points: the lack of educators, the coverage of preschool education for all children, financial support for preschool institutions. The conclusion of the dialogue was interesting: the difference between the goals and expected results of preschool education in Norway and Kyrgyzstan – we are preparing children for education, for school, and Norway for life!
On May 26, 2022, for a more complete picture, our guests were invited to visit public and private kindergartens in Bishkek.
