Dear Mrs. Frimlová,

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

We could not ask for a better kindergarten. Tom never ever cried when he had to go to kindergarten - actually on the contrary, he has to be assured that he is going to the kindergarten every day.

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!

We learned about Malvina form a friend, who by her undeniable demands for choosing the most suitable nursing school, made the choice clear in our stead. It was no doubt, that her choice will bet he most circumspect. And the final choice was made afthe the very first kind meeting with the headmistress. I am one of those parents, who were blessed with independent children, who even after allready beeing in the nursing school (since 2 years of age), are still looking forward to it every day. It payed of to me to actually prepaire and introduce my children to Malvina in advance, before they started to attend. During my first visit in Malvina, I was impressed by the environment in which Adam will spend his time evry day, joyful, playful, colorful, modern and spacious and most importantly perfectly clean, simply what I could not create for tham at my very home. Adam attends to Malvina every day for a whole day, that is why I know, that children have their programm really innovative and also correspondent to theit interrests and age. For example our Adam is enthusiasticaly teaching us yoga at home, animal greetings to sun in particular, whic he learn in nursing school (when the cobra is curious, it raises its „bodi“ I like that Malvina is considering that every child has different interests and reacts to different impulses, which are than developer individualy. At the same time they teach them thoughtfulness to other children, whil will be so important in the years to come in school desks. When it comes to catering in Malvina, I can only be envious, that suppliers of luch for our children supply also our household on regular basis. Qualivo was absolutely unknown term to me until then. So quality meat and bio food is a standard for nutrition in Malvina. I am convinced taht I chose the best place for Adam to look for friends, discover new interests and also to learn how to respect certain things. I may only hope that in years to come and other schools we will have at least a bit of luck, which we had when we chose Malvina!Marta Hanušová Mother of Adam and Anežka

It wasn´t a day when I had a bad feeling to go there and I consider this to be exceptional and very much appreciate it!Your overall care, organization, communication with children and parents, feedback, amazing daily content including a number of interesting clubs, activities, and especially your attitude to children was a great relief and reward for us in the fast pace of today. Our daughter enjoyed her time with you very much and she is much richier now.Once again, we thank you all for this. I believe that the greatest reward for all of us will be one happy little girl who had an amazing chance to start her life with you! I believe that in her life you will be remembered with love and a smile on her face.Thank you for your attitude, commitment and love you devote to children.Lenka and Lukas Schirl
"We see our mission in a fact that child leaving nursing school Malvína and entering the school is ready to fully manage education, actively joining all activities in school and successfuly create relationships, which are so important at this age."

Classes

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.
