Malvina Karlin Preschool
The Malvína Karlín preschool prepares children aged 3 or over for primary school using a unique educational programme with a focus on the creative arts and the English and Spanish languages.
The programme includes yoga lessons led by a physical therapist, music lessons with the director of the Mifun children’s choir, and creative arts lessons with an art school graduate painter.
Into our team, we chose teachers, who are specialists in their profession, they have a long-time experience with teaching of children and they can develop children´s talent and personality. But the most important criteria is the feeling for working with small children, warm and individual approach.

I would like to thank you for me and Amálka.
Amálka felt in love with the Malvina nursing school. She woke up every morning screaming „yeeaah we go to nursing school“ and packed toys and bags and stuffed animals and clips and all other absolutely necessary things :) and she stood at the doorway dressed in skirt, headdress in her hair and rubber boots.
I rely on the first impression. Professional and human approach, beautiful environment and a program that is prepared for children, convinced me that I chose well. I never heard before, that nursing school would take children to art exhibitions, brought farm animals or go to restaurants for lunch. I admire the patience and I thank you very much for all the energy dedicated to the whole concept of nursing school. Children are lead to independence, cooperation with others and creativity.
Thank you very much and I wish you all the best

Teachers are great, they are really engaged for children,they know them and they trully love them and nothing is a problem. Programs that they are inventing are amazing and incredibly colorful and children develop perfectly.
Tom started going to the Malvína - Futurama (nursery) and now he goes to the Malvína - Karlín (kindergarten) and this change took place without any problem.
Originally I thought that Tom will go to Malvína only to a certain time and then he would eventually change to public kindergarten. Now we know that Tom will remain in Malvína until his school age, because this is how the kindergarten should look like!
We are all in love with Malvina. Thank you!
A child who starts school soon must be able to listen, wait for once and should be able to concentrate for a longer time. For this reason we prepare the children for the topics in elementary school for example in expanding the knowledge of numbers and shapes, develop language and writing skills, to increase scientific knowledge, but also about learning to learn, in a playful way.
Part of our curriculum are lessons of art, music, physical exercises in Sokol, yoga lessons, Spanish and English language lessons, Lego education, once a month visit to the theater, once a month trip to one of the many galleries in Prague, joint actions with parents, activities for parents and much more.
Parents can also use the services of a psychologist, a physiotherapist and a speech therapist for their children.
