[2Y8M] 成熟點, 爺爺!

Emily@UK - Picking fruits

去果園裡採水果,愛兒堅持要幫忙提一袋李子。

 

愛兒兩歲八個月了。
向來就是很獨立的個性,凡事她都想自己來,就算她做不來的事情也一定得讓她自己先嘗試過,ˊ直到她確定自己真的做不來才會讓人幫忙。在台灣時,她的幼稚園老師也發現了這個現象。
兩歲半開始會自己穿脫全身上下的衣物鞋子,會拉拉鍊(約兩歲三個月起),扣釦子等.現在我都是把衣服扔給她,由她自己穿好,有時還會跟我說她不要穿這件,要穿別的.很開心她很獨立,但在趕時間的時候會覺得她意見太多!
兩歲半起可自己完成約 90-100 片的拼圖,其中較難 Early Learning Centre 出品的世界地圖款也在有大人陪著玩了數次之後可以自己完成.

英國政府的補助津貼政策,小孩滿三歲之後可以有幼稚園一周五個時段的補助,每個時段的限制為三個小時。父母親可以自行決定想要小孩去上課的時數,多不退少不補.
(Angel 補充說明:2010年度起已經增加為每個時段三小時了, 看各地方council跟小學也有施行上的不同. 有些地方可以一天兩個session方便working parents上班, 還有的公立nursery酌收費用家長可以加長時間。)
愛兒這個月開始上幼稚園了,一周兩天,星期一四上整天,八點到四點;明年一月開始多加星期三為半天,九點到中午十二點.
因為要到明年才滿三歲,才有政府的教育補助金,公婆疼愛孫女,決定幫我們出一半,喔耶!不然有夠貴的,每個月要一萬多台幣.

愛兒的幼稚園一角,欄杆內是可自由進出的戶外活動區,欄杆外亦是校區。
每天早上大家都會一起去右邊的樹林裡玩。

 

因為在台灣上幼稚園的時候已經經歷了那段分離焦慮,這一次她在英國上幼稚園很無痛,很乾脆地跟我們說掰掰,完全沒有情緒低落或哭泣.
英國的幼稚園多採讓小朋友們自由發展的態度,園內的「照護者」主要負責安全,陪伴及引導小朋友們摸索,這也是為什麼英國人不稱他們做老師,因為認為他們的工作不是教書。
沒有課表,除了吃飯時間需要和大家一起乖乖坐好吃飯,其他時間小孩可以高興做啥就做啥。
所有的教具小孩都可以自己拿,想看書的可以窩在小沙發上看書;想做勞作的可以自己拿材料坐著創作;想出去外面跑跑跳跳的,門隨時都是開著的,小朋友們可以自由進出。
校方會規劃一些活動且「鼓勵」小朋友們參與,但尊重小孩的喜惡與決定。例如每天早上,不論天氣是晴是雨,校方都會帶小朋友一起去樹林裡走走,因為強調與大自然越接近,孩子們的視野就會更寬闊,但如果小孩不想去,那也絕對是不強迫的。
不定時會有不同主題的繪畫創作時間,像上個學期他們畫外星人,牆壁貼著好多小朋友們畫的奇形怪狀的外星人,小朋友們可以自己決定哪天何時要怎麼畫他心目中的外星人。
我想也因為是這樣的自由自在,和在家裡沒兩樣,還比家裡更多玩具,且有小朋友可以一起玩,愛兒適應得很好。

校方不事先指派小孩的主要照護者,而是觀察小朋友們比較喜歡哪位照護者,就由該位擔當,換句話說就是讓小朋友自己選啦。
這個星期校方告知我們愛兒很喜歡一位男性照護者,總愛找他玩,所以就由他擔任愛兒的主要照護者了,之前大姑的兒子也是最喜歡這一位呢。
缺點是沒有聯絡簿,不像在台灣時那樣能充分地與校方溝通,總要父母自己記得找小孩的主要照護者發問才能得到答案。

愛兒說好聽一點是「謹慎」,說白了是「膽小」,對於不熟悉的人事物,她都會要先觀察一陣子,要看別人試過之後確定不會死人,她才會做。
某方面來說我也該覺得慶幸,正因為如此,她不常做出讓我擔心的事情,雖然有時候我也希望她能更勇敢些。但話又說回來,這種無趣大概是像她娘吧。

Emily@UK - El is a brilliant sister

愛兒坐在爸爸的肩膀上,「裙子是爸爸的帽子」,她說。

 

童心未泯的爺爺很愛逗她玩,常故意掐她一下,或跟她爭執一些有的沒有,例如:誰比較喜歡黃色?玩具車是誰的?
這種時候愛兒會跟爺爺說:「Grow up,Grandad!」(成熟點,爺爺!) 或是揮著教訓人的食指,嚴肅地說:「That’s naughty,Grandad!」(你這樣不乖喔,爺爺!) 這總逗的爺爺笑開懷,他就是喜歡聽她這樣說才故意逗她的呀。

愛兒在海邊抓小魚蝦。

 

身高體重都好久沒量了,一兩個月前量的時候是 14 公斤,身高還是比其他同年齡的小朋友要高一些。
白天午睡的時候已經不必包尿布,晚上睡覺則仍須要,但這個月有一兩次起床時尿布是乾的喔。
反正睡前會喝一杯牛奶,所以我也不急著戒,哈。

    愛兒真的好可愛喔
    這樣獨立的個性真的會讓媽媽輕鬆很多
    爺爺也超可愛的呢
    愛兒回到英國還跟你說中文嗎

    • Emily@UK says:

      對, 我仍堅持她得跟我和弟弟說中文, 希望能一直學習下去!

      • DAMA says:

        很高興你對「說中文」這個不忘本的觀念的堅持!!!

        • Emily@UK says:

          當然要, 連老公要娶之前都得先學會中文, 更何況從我肚子裡掉出來的兩塊肉, 他們都得學!

          • DAMA says:

            太喜歡你的率性了!!

            • Emily@UK says:

              謝啦, 雖然其實無關率性, 就是覺得外祖父母如果得用英文和小孩溝通的話並不合理.
              目前愛兒會因人而異了, 你跟她說英文她就用英文回你, 你若用中文她就回你中文, 很優, 希望二寶也能跟她一樣.

  • anita says:

    tiger呢?好想知道他的消息啊~~(抱頭搖)

  • Emily says:

    That’s nice to know she seems settled well…
    Hope you all enjoy life and have good time.

    2010年度起已經增加為每個時段三小時了, 看各地方council跟小學也有施行上的不同. 有些地方可以一天兩個session方便working parents上班, 還有的公立nursery酌收費用家長可以加長時間.

  • Yaling says:

    愛兒回到英國的適應真的是讓你寬心不少, 這些日子在台灣應該讓愛兒的中文教育打下了不少的基礎, 希望我也有這種機會讓我家的小猴子在台灣待上一陣子..環境對小朋友學習語言的速度真的是很重要!

    • Emily@UK says:

      環境影響真的很大, 才回來幾個月就很明顯地發現愛兒的英文突飛猛進, 還會用我不會的字耶!

  • phoenix says:

    Today, I went to the beach with my children. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and
    said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell
    to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this
    is completely off topic but I had to tell someone!
