Values Education

Values Education aims to improve moral, cultural, psychological, social, and individual sensitivity and to internalize them. Social and humanistic values are very important in life. Love, courage, friendship, cooperation, cleanness, respect, honesty, politeness, and politeness are highly appreciated in social life because in a way they determine our lifestyles. Acquiring those values at a young age is another important issue. The first place the kids face them is their homes. However, the time spent with the parents gets less day by day, and some parents are not qualified enough in values education.

That is why values education has become very important in preschools’ education system. First we decide on the values and then try to enable the kids to acquire them as their behaviors. You cannot acquire just by telling about it, it needs to be experienced, and internalized and the emotions it creates must be discussed. Through living these values become part of our kids’ personalities. In the preschool period, the child expects not only to be known and respected but also to learn, search, and be free and happy. If we can build on more of these, values education can turn out to be character education. During this period being a role model is crucial.
