Educational programme and characteristics of the Nursery School

Aims of education

Our aim is to help children get well prepared for life when they leave our School, be tolerant, friendly, inquiring, help one another and have respect for each other and for all forms of life.

Contents of education

The Nursery School educational programme “So that all of us, children and parents, could feel well” developed by a team of educational experts between 2003 and 2006 focuses on a close cooperation with parents. Preschool education represents an initial stage of public education which is organized and controlled in accordance with requirements and instructions from the Ministry of Education. The current educational policy of the Czech Republic is based on the belief that people have to learn all their lives and that they should be interested in their own education, learning and knowledge which all enable a better and richer interaction with the world. Preschool education represents the very start of lifelong education. It is therefore important for children to acquire in our Nursery Schools prerequisites for lifelong learning. Education in classes is realized through all activities and situations, both through spontaneous as well as directed activities. Learning through experience is also important. At first it is necessary to start with simple things, like greetings, saying thank you, being able to perform basic skills (hygiene, dressing, table manners), and only then can children make use of our School´s extra offer.
