This means that we are a private kindergarten, not a children’s centre, and we guarantee pre-primary education and pre-school preparation in accordance with relevant valid legislation. At the same time, we provide a full, private service, taking into account clients‘ requirements. At our kindergarten, the pedagogical approach of teachers is based on positive education, which is rooted in love and trust in the child. We are happy to contribute to the correct development and understanding of a child’s world full of play, fun, creativity and joy.

Hygiene and health
Every day we pay attention to the compliance of children’s hygiene habits, by that we also support their independence. Part of the education process is, among other things, building the relationship of children with a healthy lifestyle and body care. Social facilities are equipped with soap dispensers and disposable hand towels. We try to prevent diseases that are easily transmitted within a group of children. The standard equipment of the kindergarten includes a first aid room used in the case of acute illness of the child.

For your children
It is in the pre-school facility we are able to provide children with a good foundation for a simpler start in school and therefore, in their education and training, we focus mainly on experiential learning. In a playful way, with respect for the rights to education and training in accordance with the Convention of the Rights of the Child, we give every child a chance to develop their capacities and abilities to ensure the full development of their personality.
- In addition, the kindergarten is bilingual, both Slovak and English-speaking children come to us, this creates natural conditions for bilingual communication.
- Our aim is to create various opportunities in which parents can be engaged. The parents can also be informed every day about educational activities with the possibility to convey their comments and opinions.
- Private kindergarten focuses on the education of children from two to six years and children with postponed compulsory attendance.
- The maximum number of children in the class is fifteen. Classes are divided into groups where one teacher has a maximum of six to seven children.
- If the child is less than 2 years old but is mature and able to integrate into the collective, his/her acceptance may be possible after several days of observation.
Starting kindergarten is a huge change in the lives of children as well as their parents. That is why we at our kindergarten use an adaptation process that will help you handle this complicated time. The aim of the adaptation process is to overcome negative emotions resulting from the child’s separation from parents, to become comfortable in the new role of a kindergarten pupil and to integrate the child into the community with other children. Our team has several years of experience that we apply in the integration process.
The daily program includes games, play activities, motion and relaxation exercises, time outdoors, naps and educational activities. In the stimulating environment of kindergarten children are able to improve their practical skills and get comprehensive information about the world around them. We help them to get used to another adult person and a small group (up to 6 children in one group), and to also get used to the order and activities of the school regime. They improve their soft motoric skills, control their movements, develop the basics of creative thinking, personal and social competencies.
We lead children to creativity and independence by obtaining information from different sources. We move the teacher’s role to the position of an observer, partner, and counsellor. Children are educated by qualified pedagogical staff, with a loving and responsible approach. There is a logopedist and psychological care available. Through games, the child meets his or her needs, desires, interests, and is also learning and educated.
Educational equipment and learning materials enable a comprehensive development of the personality of the child in a playful experiential form, with an emphasis on his or her individuality. Through our educational program „Lienkovo“, which is based on ISCED 0 – a state educational document, we enable the complex personality development of the child.
We give children full balanced meals, complemented by a wide selection of fruit-and-cereal snacks. Snack and lunch are served at a fixed times keeping a regular triangle interval between meals. Throughout the day, a drinking regime is ensured, we prefer to give pure water and unsweetened teas. Teachers take care of creating the right table manners.
Children have the opportunity to participate in optional activities – canisterapia, archery, pony riding, swimming, skating and gymnastics under the guidance of specialized coaches. Regular educational activities are enriched by theatre performances, excursions, trips, gabfests, creative workshops, birthday celebrations, carnivals, celebrations of holidays, visits of the zoo and museums. We often visit Horský park (the Mountain Park), which is in the neighbourhood of the kindergarten and it provides the children with many opportunities for outdoor activities in the fresh air of nature.
