” Early childhood should be a journey, not a race. “

Location

Our kindergarten is located on the Castle Hill, in a quiet residential area, yet having a big garden and a private parking. The villa provides a generous space of some 600 sq metres including childrens’ play area, academic zone equipped for art, music, library, assembly room, dining room and bedrooms. This favourable location gives us a perfect opportunity for short trips to sports facilities, museums, galleries, theatres and sightseeing of Bratislava centre, as well as to Horský Park (little forest).

Mission

We believe that taking care of children, teaching them to respect and appreciate one another are important values these days. For us it is important to work individualy with each child to capture and support his/her uniqueness so it can be developed further.

Staff & Curriculum

Our professional staff is a team of international teachers with years of successful practice with
project-based and child-centered connected curriculum accredited by Edison Learning Program, which is one of the top world educational platforms. This is combining real life with the academic facts in a way that your child will learn all naturally, with the focus on critical thinking.
We have two approaches when delivering the curriculum to choose from based on the language of instruction. It could be either an English approach with the additional choice of Spanish, Chinese, German and Slovak lessons or an approach with the Slovak language of instruction with intensive English and possible offer of Spanish, Chinese and German lessons.
A big part of the Edison Learning Program is covered by physical education and the development of fine and gross motor skills. The children have their schedule designed in such a way that they can experience various off-site activities to develop their fitness and leisure hobbies with athletics and activities (for example, swimming, yoga, ball games, gymnastics and dancing lessons.)

Extra care for children

To enhance the children’s creativity, and support lifelong learning & better memory, along with a calmer and more centered approach to their surroundings, we are cooperating with the experts of Brighter Minds. The program equips every child with tools and methods to enhance the senses of observation,
cognitive functioning and instils confidence in oneself.
Hand in hand both programs, the Edison Learning Program together with the Brighter Minds Global Educational Initiative are combined in a way to give your child the best possible start in his/her preschool life.

This is a global nonprofit organization with thousands of volunteer trainers who serve more than a million meditators in over 130 countries. The mission is to help develop peaceful, healthy and holistically educated individuals and children, families and communities, organizations and businesses, and government organizations, with a spirit of human well-being and oneness. Heartfulness relaxation and meditation techniques are
studied and proven to be effective in reducing stress and anxiety, improving sleep, enhancing
emotional intelligence and exploring the heights and depths of human consciousness.
