Admissions Process

Duhovka Preschool admission procedure and conditions for school year 2019/2020

Preschool Pevnostní, Prague 6

Open Door Days

Open house day at Duhovka Preschool takes place in the form of individual meetings of parents with preschool management. Candidates have the opportunity to take a tour of the preschool premises and the garden. The aim of the meeting is to clarify whether the educational offer of the Preschool matches the ideas of the parents. At Duhovka, parents will have the option to meet teachers, to take a peek into classes and to learn about the environment of the preschool and its background, when the daily schedule allows it. At this meeting, the preschool representatives discuss the philosophy of Montessori pedagogy with the parents and familiarize them with Duhovka values and the educational possibilities within its educational system. 


The Preschool is accepting non-binding applications for the school year 2019/2020 from 1. 11. 2018 to 19. 4. 2019. The chronological order of submitted applications is one of the criteria for admission to the preschool.

You can download the application form here.

Meeting with parents

On the basis of the application, the Preschool will call the child's legal representative to a personal meeting in the Preschool with the participation of the director or the Preschool deputy director. (The meeting itself is a prerequisite for the child's admission to the preschool meeting, but its course or results have no effect on the admission). The parents receive a parent's' guide and other information materials at the meeting; we consider these materials important and the parents can study them at home.

After the meeting, parents receive a contract for review via email. The contract is signed only after the decision to accept the child to the Preschool has been made.


On 13 and 14 May 2019, registration takes place from 8:30 AM to 1:00 PM. Only the legal representatives who have submitted the application and attended the personal meeting in the Preschool are invited to the registration. During the registration, legal representatives sign an application for admission of the child to the Preschool. They also submit a completed registration sheet with confirmation from the pediatrician about proper vaccination and eligibility of the child for admission to the Preschool. The Preschool can only accept a child who has undergone regular vaccinations (according to the Czech Republic's vaccination calendar) and has a certificate verifying that they are immune to the given infectious diseases or cannot be vaccinated due to a permanent contraindication.

Within 14 days of signing the application, the Preschool director issues a decision on the admission of the child to the Preschool. The admission of the child combined with the signing of the contract by the legal representatives of the child, obliges the legal representative to pay one monthly tuition fee.

Admission criteria

Admission of the child to education in Duhovka Preschool is decided by the Preschool director after the registration is completed on the basis of established criteria. The Preschool will prefer students for acceptance according to the following criteria (regardless of the order of the application):

  1. Children with previous attendance to the Toddler class in Duhovka. This preference criterion shall apply only if the parents have sent in the application for the current school year by February 28, 2019, and if the child was already attending the Toddler program of the Preschool at the time of the enrolment.  
  2. Siblings of children attending the Preschool or its affiliated programs or who attended them in the past or children whose siblings attend a different level of education in the Duhovka School system.
  3. Children interested in enrolling in the 5-day attendance program.
  4. Children with advanced English or other foreign language skills.
  5. Children by age in this order: three-year-olds, then four- and five-year-old children are preferred, then children under three years of age who do not wear diapers, dress with minimal help, are able to follow simple rules, are able to separate from their parents, and can adequately express their needs.

If the Preschool capacity (both facilities) is not filled after all decisions have been taken, the Preschool further accepts candidates in the mode: "Application - interview - contract review - application signature, issuance of the decision and contract signature" until the Preschool capacity is full.

If the school capacity allows it, the Preschool also admits children during the school year.

Admission of a child with special health needs is decided by the Preschool director at the request of a legal representative, a doctor's opinion, a special pedagogical center or a pedagogical psychological counseling center.

Admission of the child

When the child is admitted to the Preschool, the director makes an agreement with the legal representative on the duration and the days of the child's stay in the Preschool, including the method of catering.

In the case of admission of a child to preschool education at the Preschool, the child's legal representatives are obliged to submit the appropriate personal documents before the child is brought to the Preschool and to submit the following documents to the Preschool office:

  1. List of persons authorized to pick up the child from Preschool
  2. Consent to the processing of personal data


The conditions of the admission procedure come into force on 1. 11. 2018.
