The English-Czech kindergarten is for children from the age of 2,5 – 6 years.
The week-long preschool program is intended for children of all nationalities. Knowledge of Czech or English is not a prerequisite for admission, on the contrary, children will learn both of these languages over the course of the year, despite the fact that their native language is different.
The center is open for children every weekday from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. (Friday 1:00 p.m.).
The daily program starts at 9:00 a.m. and ends at 3:00 p.m. (12:00 on Fridays). Children must be picked up no later than 4:00 p.m. (on Fridays until 1:00 p.m.).
The morning and afternoon programs are led by two lecturers (1 native English speaker and 1 Czech speaker). The program is designed for the entire whole school year, divided into months and then into individual weeks. Educational activities are focused on learning both languages in a playful and spontaneous manner. The year-long program will be divided into several topics. The topics are designed to be close to children and to be used in everyday situations. Children will learn to use daily routine questions and answers so that they can respond spontaneously and communicate with each other. Number of children in the group is max. 8.
The capacity of the center is 16 children. During the activities, the children are divided into groups of eight so that we can devote maximum attention to all children. Preschool children are educated according to the preschool educational program in accordance with the standard preschool curiculum.
During the day, we provide the children with a drinking regime, a morning snack, a full lunch and an afternoon snack. During snack and lunch time, children have the option of unlimited consumption of seasonal fruits and vegetables.
English language courses for children from the age of 3
The course is 60 minutes long and takes place once a week. Lessons are taught by a native speaker in English only. The courses include Smart Start learning materials, student´s books, activity books, worksheets, digital book apps with practical exercises, listening and videos.

Our goal is to introduce children to the English language so that in the future they will use this language without any problems or shyness and have a positive attitude towards it. Children are divided into groups according to age, the maximum number of children in a group is 8.
Drama education group for children from the age of 3
A method of dramatic education, i.e. the active involvement of the child himself through inducing real-world situations in the form of children’s games. Drama education develops children’s communication skills and many other social competences. Children strengthen their own identity, assert their own opinion, behave more pro-socially – cultivating mutual relationships. For this activity, lecturer Anna will use children’s literature, musical instruments, nursery rhymes… but especially to create an atmosphere and lead the children through various standard life situations in the form of a game. All this in the Czech language. The course takes place every Monday from 16:45 to 17:30 with a maximum number of 12 children.
