Imagine a place where children feel safe and on their journey to discovery, they are accompanied by caring adults who are trained in child development. Imagine your 2-year-old toddler preparing their own snack or enthusiastically getting dressed to go outside. This is the Montessori world of the smallest children.
Our nursery school program for children aged 1.5 to 3 years offers Czech-English instruction based on the Montessori education method. The first three years of life are crucial for creating a solid foundation on which children build their lifelong approach to education and other areas of their lives. In order to grow up and realize their full potential, at the beginning of their life, a child needs to be surrounded by people who will support them in exploring the world, acquiring language, improving movement and finding a sense of order.
Children gradually acquire various skills in an environment that supports their development.
- Practical life, including gaining independence and building relationships with other children, courtesy, decent behavior and social skills
- Sensory activities and language skills
- Art, crafts, music, and a sense of rhythm
- Fine and gross motor skills
In the nursery classes, we support the development of independence and understanding in mutual relationships and support children on their path to acquire abilities and get the feeling of security and trust in themselves. Our motto is Maria Montessori’s quote, “Never help a child with a task at which he feels he can succeed".
