Our kindergarten is not only a place of entertainment, but also a learning centre. We accept children aged from 2,5 to 6 years and also older children who have been recommended to postpone the start of primary school by a Educational-Psychological Counselling. Accommodating younger children is dependent upon an individual agreement with the management of the kindergarten. We strive to create a friendly family atmosphere in which your child will feel safe and will enjoy himself/herself. We make sure children have enough opportunities to exercise and play and we try to make the link between different activities natural and as smooth as possible. We encourage and lead children to becoming self confident and independent. We teach them to express their ideas and feelings and listen to others. Children´s individuality and healthy lifestyle ranks very high on your list of priorities. Our goal is to lay the foundations for lifelong learning for all children according to their abilities, interests and needs.
The full-day programme with daily routine is designed in cooperation with educational specialists, paediatricians and psychologists. Great emphasis is placed on the balance of different kinds of activities – exercise, learning, creativity, free time, self-reflection and assessment of children – in order to balance the development of all skills and character traits of children.
Our kindergarten is bilingual – children speak with teacher both languages – English / Czech. This is a good choice for parents who are considering placing their offspring in a Czech speaking kindergarten yet wish for them to develop a good basis for learning a foreign language in the future. The most common choice of foreign language in this type of kindergarten is English, however, we can also provide courses in other languages such as Spanish, French, Italian or Chinese like a afternoon clubs activities. The used teaching method is based on a natural (by play) acquaintance with the foreign language. It is generally believed that children who have some knowledge of a foreign language understand their mother tongue better.
Besides language teaching our school provides a wide range of other activities crucial for the development of your child´s personality such as arts, music, dramatic skills and sports. In the afternoon time, we offer a wide interest clubs of vocational activities which concentrate on the following aspects: healthy exercise, developing motor skills, creativity through art, talent development, social relationships, memory exercises, relaxation, etc.
