A MUM was horrified to discover her four-year-old daughter’s gruelling nursery schedule which includes engineering and science.
The mum revealed she was shocked when teachers at the £64 ($125AUD) pre-school told her her daughter wasn’t concentrating well.
But after her mum looked at her schedule, she could see why.
The daily routine, which starts at 7.30am until 6.30pm, includes engineering, maths and technology classes.
The gruelling schedule also teaches personal development, health and physical education (PDHPE), and human society and its environment (HSIE).
Kids also have ‘progressive’ meal times, which is where they're encouraged children to eat rather than forcing them to, with food placed on tables and children expected to eat when they’re hungry.
But it’s not all serious subjects, as there’s also time for ‘meditation’.
Later in the evening the children are taught about the ‘news’ as well as having ‘free discussion time’.
After looking at her daughter’s routine, the mum was gobsmacked at the jam-packed schedule.
Sharing a snap of the timetable on Facebook, she said: “Is this what preschoolers are meant to be learning in a long day centre every day in their class?
“Or is it just me thinking this is really ridiculous.
“I looked at her schedule and no wonder why my four-year-old has no concentration.”
No wonder why my four-year-old has no concentration
Fellow parents agree, claiming the lesson plan looks more appropriate for older children.
One person said: “The teacher has forgotten where she is teaching. This looks like my high school kids’ timetable.”
Another wrote: “A four-year-old has limited concentration anyway, that’s a harsh routine.
“I’m all for kids going to school at four to five, but they should be learning to socialise, interact, learn through play and enjoy their early school years.
“This looks ridiculous to me.”While a third asked: “This is a bulls**t routine. When do they get to be kids?”
