What iterests you

Sport

The educational program includes a cycling and sports week, sports days and regular walks around.

In cycling week, children learn in a practical and fun way how to ride a bike safely. They are accompanied throughout the week by experienced instructors and show children the beauty and risks of cycling. After the course, children are more aware and responsible, during their stay, both on the road and in the field. The little ones will learn to ride their own bikes in a week. The more experienced will then improve in the technique of riding in the woods, meadows, terrain and sportkids fun obstacles (they simulate, for example, descending from the sidewalk, overcoming uneven road surfaces and generally increase stability and safety on the bike).

Preschool preparation

The preschool club is most often divided into blocks, each of which lasts 20-25 minutes. Within them, we practice fine motor skills, visual and auditory perception, attention and memory, thinking and numerical relationships, school readiness in general. Emphasis is placed on the pre-reading period of introductory reading, where we draw on the SFUMATO fluent reading methodology. Through continuous reading, we teach children the correct eye movements, thereby preventing developmental disorders, especially dyslexia. We develop pre-mathematical thinking using the HEJNÉHO method.

Teaching takes place in a specially adapted classroom with an interactive whiteboard.

  

Monty Fashion

At Monty, we do not compel parents to purchase expensive uniforms. However, we do provide the option to acquire a Dress Code, which consists of a collection of standardized clothing and accessories that we use during communal events, outings, and celebrations.

The Dress Code also includes attire for the teachers, who use it on a daily basis.

German language

The German ring is taught according to Hallo Anna textbook. Children together with the lecturer and the central character Anna penetrate the foundations of the tongue in a playful and entertaining way. Each lesson is divided into several parts so that the children are not bored and to get used to the order and regularity. In the teaching, mostly audio-visual methods such as pictures, thematic posters or singing German songs are used, children also actively use textbooks.

Sports club

The sports club is focused on the all-round development of your child's movement abilities and skills.

Thanks to the methodical and non-traditional processing of the circle, children learn to play sports correctly and develop a positive relationship with movement. The content of the club is also learning about attractive Olympic disciplines and competing in the spirit of fair play.

The sports program does not have the character of training and does not aim to achieve top sports performance. In teaching, generally developing exercises are used, which increase children's dexterity and physical condition in a playful and competitive manner.

Food

Children at the kindergarten are provided with truly healthy food in the form of organic products, seasonal fruits and vegetables, and high-quality products from local farmers.

Sweets are replaced with alternatives like unsulfured dried fruits. We make our own homemade muesli sweetened with quality chocolate, bake our own bread, and use butter rather than margarine.

Lunches are delivered by the company www.gastrovondracek.cz. This company, along with Mr. Vondráček himself, ensures the quality of both preparation and meat on a daily basis. They prioritize homemade ingredients and high-quality foods.

Morning and afternoon snacks are served in a buffet style, where children can choose from a variety of pastries (savory, sweet), spreads (butter, spreads), ham, cheese, fresh fruits, and vegetables (according to the season).

We draw great inspiration from PharmDr. Margrit Slimáková and her healthy cuisine.

Preschool

At MONTY, we don't pamper children, but employ their heads and bodies to learn many times more than anywhere else, while considering kindergarten as their second family! We focus on simultaneous bilingualism, where a child learns both languages at the same time, and has had contact with both of them since early childhood.

The Monty School Prague kindergarten is registered in the school register and situated in the beautiful surroundings of the Hodkovičky district of Prague.

Children grow up in a multicultural environment. Children are not strictly divided according to age, but rather on the basis of their knowledge and abilities. Children are cared for by native English speakers as well as Czech teachers from both men and women. We consider experiential learning with a varied offer of stimuli for learning and the joy of it to be essential. The basic method of our work is a game, which means learning, communicating, imagining, cooperating, creating, being happy, being free, amazing, growing but also having time. We work with everyone according to their pace and possibilities.

We see the benefits of bilingual education when the child speaks one language, as if he had an answer in another in his head. He has to evaluate at any moment how his partner is talking in the conversation. This is a good training for the brain, thanks to which children have more creative thinking and are more sensitive in communication. From an early age, they know that this does not have to be just a "table", but also a "tisch" or a "table", so they do not box so much and tend to be more open. As a rule, bilingual children can also think better about the nature and function of the language and learn more language more easily.

1) Advantages of communication:
- wider communication field (extended family, community, international connections, employment).
- literacy in two languages.

2) Cultural benefits:
- deeper multiculturalism, bilingual experience of the world.
- greater tolerance towards minorities, less inclination towards racism.

3) Development of cognitive skills:
- development of thinking, creativity, sensitivity in communication.

4) Personal development:
- strengthening self-esteem, self-confidence.
- secure identity.

5) Benefits in the field of education:
- the growing possibility of achieving higher education.
- easier learning a third language.

6) Economic benefits:
- wider possibility of employment in various occupations

Theater and dramatic club

Theater offers children the possibility of physical and mental activities at the same time. In this club, children enjoy a lot of fun playing various children's theater games and fairy tales. In a playful way, they learn a lot of rhymes, poems, language and fairy tales, learn to speak clearly and also perform in front of other children. The club is therefore also suitable for children who are ashamed to learn how to establish yourself. Conversely, restless children can calm down in this club.

Speech therapy

More and more children have speech problems and need to seek professional speech therapy care. If more languages are being taught, speech therapy supervision is a necessity. The pronunciation and correct speech development in Monty is supervised by a clinical speech therapist, who regularly attends kindergarten once a week.
