Research shows that children who underwent Kindergarten have better completion rates than those who did not. Children who complete a standards-based Kindergarten program are better prepared, for primary education. Education for children in the early years lays the foundation for lifelong learning and for the total development of a child. The early years of a human being, from 0 to 6 years, are the most critical period when the brain grows to at least 60-70 percent of adult size..[Ref: K to 12 Toolkit] In Kindergarten, students learn the alphabet, numbers, shapes, and colors through games, songs, and dances, in their Mother Tongue.   Making the Curriculum Relevant to Learners (Contextualization and Enhancement)   Examples, activities, songs, poems, stories, and illustrations are based on local culture, history, and reality.

Others weaken nutrients that are meant for the body such as soda pop drinks. CAUSES OF EATING UNHEALTHY FOODS Eating during Other Activities If you eat while watching TV, while working, while reading or even while cooking then you are also developing an unhealthy eating behavior. When you eat while doing other activities, you become unable to measure how much you eat. As a result, you tend to overeat without knowing it. Try to have a specific schedule for eating. In the house, have a designated place exclusively for eating. For instance, you can make sure that you only eat in the kitchen and not in the other parts of the house. Eating Late at Night Having an occasional late night snack is fine, but if you can't go to bed without having a plate of cookies or a slice of pie first, then you could be setting yourself up forweight gain. Eating too close to bedtime will also give you sleeping difficulty since your body will be busy digesting food.
