Did you look forward to going to school for the first time?
Most of us did so. Children love learning new things. They look forward to their first school bag and new experiences. Nevertheless, the transition from kindergarten to school can be a stressful experience for a child. Each child has to cope with new rules and unknown faces.
Our coordinated team of 2 teachers and 2 assistants prepares them for this big step in their life. How do we do it?
Solid foundations for the entire course of life
First of all, we teach them to be patient. Like when listening to their teacher explaining a task (to avoid being unhappy because of not fully completing the task). We teach them to concentrate on each task, which - in the era of smartphones - is a problem of many adults, too.
To show children how to complete a task is the third pillar. And if one method fails to show them an alternative. Being with the children, we help them manage all emotions on their journey. When seeking a solution to a problem, we foster creativity in children, the ability to adapt in order to avoid unnecessary stress.
With us, personalities grow
We show our children what are the possibilities. To come up with a solution is a task for them helping in their natural development. Thanks to our games and funny tasks, children work individually and as a team. They learn how to communicate, express their emotions and perceive the needs of other people.
Most of the kids leaving us at the end of each school year are personalities able to express their opinion and accept the decision of a teacher or a majority.
It helps them greatly in understanding the rules in the first year of their school attendance. Next, they can devote their full attention to what is essential - learning and getting to know each other.
Each class is led by two graduated and (above all) experienced teachers, whose tasks include preparing children for the first class by games and more complex tasks. They develop children’s emotional sphere, motor skills and socialisation in a group. Being very friendly to children, they show them rules the children will follow for the rest of their lives.
Assists our skilled teachers by significantly participating in the educational process. Teacher's assistant is always nearby to help with all the little things of daily life. Teacher's assistant follows instructions of the teachers, helps children with special educational needs as well as with gifted children.
English and sports teacher
encourages children to move, love sports and live a healthy lifestyle. One of his key tasks is to develop speaking skills of a child in several respects. He sensitively helps foreign-language speaking children integrate in a team and, on the other hand, improve English language skills of Czech children.
In our kindergarten there is a lot of children whose mother language is not Czech, using Czech as a means of communication at different levels or not speaking Czech at all. The bilingual assistant strives to facilitates the children’s first days at school. In addition to the language barrier, a child who does not understand a language tends to feel lonely and lost. A bilingual assistant can help the child feel welcome and safe. The main benefit of a bilingual assistant is his/her advanced level of mastering a second language, which allows him/her to control how each foreign-language speaking child speaks - directly or, indirectly (e.g. using communication cards etc.)
