Abstract

We carried out an observation of the school maturity and readiness for education of 24 bilingual children of gipsy origin and 36 children with mother language - Bulgarian (a control group) from the preparatory classes from Varna. The methods of Bratanova for complex assessment of the school maturity were used. The observation of the school maturity was held at the beginning and at the end of the school year. The complex assessment of the school maturity shows that at the beginning of the school year 95.83% of the bilingual children are immature and only 4.16% are with moderate maturity, as in the control group even at the beginning of the year there is a high percentage of mature and moderate mature children - 44.44%. At the end of the school year more significant is the improvement in the physical development, while the indexes of neuro-psychical development, so important for education, stay unsatisfactory.
