About us

We are more than a preschool – we don't just prepare our children for their first grade entrance, we prepare them for their future! We believe that a safe and friendly environment filled with love is the key ingredient for a child's healthy development. That is why we put such a big emphasis on an individual approach for children and we make sure that the Preschool suits all their needs. Our classrooms are bright and spacious – an ideal environment for playing and learning. We have a large garden with a playground and a big trampoline. Moreover, there are a few garden beds in the garden where we grow flowers, vegetables, and strawberries which encourages children’s responsible relationship with nature.

During the educational process, we focus on the optimal balance between traditional educational tools such as art, music and theatre lessons and modern technologies. Our children learn English in the most natural way – by playing and talking with our native speakers. Balanced and varied meals are fundamental to us so we make sure the food we serve is fresh and that there is always enough fruit and vegetables.

The children will learn how to prepare dishes such as peppers filled with cheese and herbs, vegetable sandwiches, chocolate truffles, and other delicacies.

Dance club

In our dance club, besides dancing, children learn rhythm, orientation within the space around them, knowledge about the body and what it can do, and last but not least they learn how to work in a group and respect each other.

Fri

Science club

In our Science club, the children will be excited to learn everything there is to know about the world around us! The preschoolers watch entertaining videos, take a look at worksheets, read picture books, and are even able to do their own special projects that they can take home to show their families.

Communication with parents

For us, parents are the most important partners in a child's education process. That is why we inform them regularly about all the things that are happening in the Preschool via e-mail or a special app (ClassDojo). Naturally, the parents also receive information about their child's progress and are given available dates for individual consultations with the teachers.

Monthly we send out:

  • The Educational plan
  • Evaluation of the past period
  • Information about changes in the schedule, if there are any
  • Information about planned activities and field trips

Annually we send out:

  • School Year Calendar
  • Twice a year we send reports on the child’s progress
