Nursery school focus group
The aim of a focus group is to collect some important information about a people’s beliefs. They help to understand the reasons behind a people belief. Therefore, in our case, the aim of this focus group is to create an understanding why parent’s belief pre-primary school education is beneficial. Therefore, the school convenes a group of parents who gives their viewpoints which in turn helps the administration in setting up priorities that conforms with the desires of the parents.
Pre-testing and post-testing
Basically, I don’t think pre-testing is necessary because the school has been running and the administrators only wasn’t to get more information from the parents in order to help enhance their operations. Post-testing, on the other hand is crucial as it helps to measure the performance of the entire school. Therefore, the following methods are critical in evaluating the effectiveness of the nursery.
With the help of a moderator, the parents are engaged where different viewpoints are encouraged. The platform enables parents to air their experiences with the school overtime. Challenges are discussed along with the advantages, benefits and so on. The kids are normally admitted at the age of just 2 months and complete the course at the age of 5 years. The service at the school involves the use of doctors, and psychologists. Therefore, parents are allowed to narrate their views on the growth and development of their kids.
The development of the health of the kids as well as concerns is discussed. This involves the response of the doctors during the periods of the illnesses. Their handling of emergency cases, adherence of the drug taking and administration of the same is discussed. Parents are allowed to talk about the failures of the doctors. This happens especially when some of the kids are treated for unnecessarily long periods without recovering. In such situations, it becomes clear that either the doctors are unable to diagnose their illnesses effectively, or there are challenges with the administration and taking of the prescribed dosage. Essentially, a word of mouth is applicable in such conversations in order to enhance clarity and effectiveness of the entire focus group together with the school as a whole.
The teaching practice is equally analyzed, this time with the help of the kids themselves. The gradual improvement with the knowledge of reading, writing is evaluated. Parents are allowed to air their concerns about the overall performance of their kids. While this includes their failures and successes, they are given a chance to talk about their feelings and reasons behind the same. While different kids have got differing abilities, each of them is expected to excel in at least one of the fields of study. Among the fields evaluated includes the social, language, physical and the emotional skills. Therefore, excelling in some of them is acceptable but failing in all of them is questionable.
A different session where the kids are responders is held. They are interviewed orally in order to allow for easier expression and clarity. This method helps to collect first-hand information regarding their overall progress at the school. They are allowed to talk about their teachers, doctors, and psychologists. They also comment about their experiences in the environment. The information helps the management to develop measures of correcting weaknesses and enhancing their strengths.
