Cooperation is gaining momentum
A working visit to the International University of Central Asia brought preschool education specialists, kindergarten teachers from Bergen, Kirsis Mercedes Harlen, Callie Louis Waktskjold and Anna-May Leygurlene Ebbesvik. The program of the visit was discussed in detail, so the guests had the opportunity not only to discuss further steps of cooperation, get acquainted with the kindergartens of Tokmok and Bishkek, but also to see the sights of Kyrgyzstan

On May 25, 2022 a round table on "Active learning of the world by children in preschool organizations in Kyrgyzstan and Norway" was held at the University. Heads of preschool institutions, specialists and experts involved in training and retraining of specialists in preschool education were invited. Teachers from the Institute of Humanities Asekova J.D. and Valvakov R.V. talked about the special features of training preschool education specialists and kindergartens in Norway. Discussed and talked about the pressing issues: the shortage of teachers, the coverage of preschool education for all children, financial support for preschool institutions. An interesting conclusion of the dialogue was: the difference between the goals and expected results of preschool education in Norway and Kyrgyzstan - we prepare children for learning, for school, and Norway for life!

On May 26, 2022 for a fuller picture our guests were invited to visit state and private kindergartens in Bishkek. We express our deep gratitude for the warm welcome to the directors of kindergarten №2 Stepanchenko Tatiana Vladimirovna, kindergarten "Rainbow" Zolotareva Ksenia Viktorovna from Tokmok city and "Shambala" Karimova Elmira Umarovna from Bishkek, municipal kindergarten №148 Turusbekova Janyl Omurbekovna, kindergarten "Blue Bird" Kamila Isabekova.

The day ended with an excursion to the State Historical Museum, where our Norwegian colleagues had the opportunity to view the ethnographic and archeological collections. Great interest was attracted by the "Treasures of the Queen of Shamsha", polychrome jewelry dating back to the era of the Great Migration of Peoples, works of felt, wool, leather, chiy, wood, precious metals, collections of traditional embroidery, national dress, weaving and highly artistic items for horseback riding.

Udibova Raziya, a fourth-year Pedagogy student, accompanied the guests as an interpreter. A good opportunity for Razia to practice her English with native speakers and communicate with her mentors from the Norwegian Kindergarten, where she did her internship.

Collaboration with the Norwegian College of Education continues, new horizons are opening up!...
