First Class Care for Your Child
As an international preschool we choose the best from different cultural approaches towards early years care and education. Our children have a great opportunity to communicate in English from very early stages of their development.
A kind and caring attitude is at the core of everything we do. Children have a comfortable environment to play in with our experienced team of teachers while learning and developing their understanding of the world.
Our preschool is divided into three classes
pre-nursery (age 2-3)
nursery (age 3-4)
reception (age 4-5).
Your child can speak in Czech at home and in English at preschool. This way, they learn another language naturally without confusion.
In our preschool, children of different cultures meet and therefore automatically learn about new things and learn respect and understanding.
We follow a well recognised programme International Early Years Curriculum. This provides the children with a balance of guided and individually led games.
This included personal development, language and spoken word, maths, world understanding and physical and creative development.
From the age of 4, we develop children’s abilities and skills systematically that can then be used in further education in reading and writing in English. For this purpose, we use specific international educational materials Jolly Phonics and Oxford Reading Tree .
Jolly Phonics is an engaging way to teach children pre -reading and pre -writing skills using phonics. Phonics is the teaching of the sounds that letters make, rather than the names of letters that are taught in the alphabet, because it is the sounds that are useful for reading and writing, not the names. These sounds are taught in a systematic way, alongside all of the skills needed for being a fluent reader and writer in future. Jolly Phonics also teaches all of this in a fun and engaging way, through characters, stories, actions, songs and games! To read more about Jolly Phonics, clickhere.
ORT is a reading scheme which has been developed to help children learn to read from the age of 4. This scheme is used by a vast majority of preschools and schools in the UK and around the world.ORT includes popular characters and illustrations such as Biff, Chip and Kipper, Floppy, Wordless Stories and easy regular word books to capture children’s imagination and interest and help them develop their pre reading skills. It is an excellent way to practise the skills learned through the Jolly Phonics Programme..
Cambridge Primary ENGLISH promotes an enquiry-based approach, developing learners’ confidence, creativity and intellectual engagement. Learners develop English skills that they can apply to a range of different purposes and audiences in everyday situations and in study.
We teach English as a first language. Pupils that are only starting to learn English or need some additional support are allocated to our intensive English as a Second Language (ESL) programme.More about Cambridge Primary English
Cambridge Primary MATHEMATICS focuses on principles, patterns, systems, functions and relationships so that learners can apply their mathematical knowledge and develop a holistic understanding of the subject. Knowing your times tables facts without practical application and without developing alongside some good problem solving skills is not that helpful - in our school, we make sure our pupils know why they are learning it and how they can use the specific knowledge and skill.More about Cambridge Primary Maths
