Kindergarten (literally means "children's garden in German") is a form of education for young

 children which serves as a transition from home to the commencement of more formal schooling. Children are taught to develop basic skills through creative play and social interaction. In most countries kindergarten is part of the pre-school system. In parts of the United States, Canada and Australia kindergarten is the word used to describe the first year of compulsory education. In British English, nursery or playgroup is the usual term for pre-school education, and "kindergarten" is rarely used. Children usually attend kindergarten any time between the ages of three and seven depending on the local custom.

In the United States kindergartens are usually part of an elementary school as part of the K-12 educational system. Children usually attend at ages 56 but in some states kids can start as young as 4. Kindergarten is considered the first year of formal education although the child may have gone to pre-school/nursery school. It is however considered a grade.

There are many positive learning and social/behavioral benefits for children in kindergarten programs. At the same time, it is widely felt that what children are doing during the kindergarten day is more important than the length of the school day. Gullo (1990) and Olsen and Zigler (1989) warn educators and parents to resist the pressure to include more didactic academic instruction in all-day kindergarten programs. They contend that this type of instruction is inappropriate for young children.
