About Koala

We emphasize the development of necessary skills of your children. Together we recognize their strengths,  discover the world around us  and develop imagination. Thanks to years of experience in the area of care and education of children of various age groups, we prepare a learning program in a fun way. In the preparation of the lessons and overall program, we draw from our own experience, the Czech educational framework, Montessori principles, as well as from alternative educational programs. We are located conveniently in the immediate vicinity of the playground and park Riegrovy sady, which is ideal for everyday activities outdoor.

MUSIC BASICS

During the music basics, we get familiar with the rhythm. Guitar tunes accompany children when they learn with percussion instruments or other musical and non-musical instruments. Together we play and sing the best-known children's songs.

 
DANCE AND DRAMA CLASS 

During this classes we focus on movement. The children stretch well, learn to breathe properly and manage more challenging exercises. We combine exercises with yoga elements and proper stretching. We teach children to work with their own body and have them embody different animals, colors, numbers or elements of verbal language. Every exercise is then then turned into a simple form of dramatic expression, such as a short performance or play.

 

ART CLASS

We paint, draw, cut, glue, play with different shapes and materials. We learn about different techniques and use natural materials (what we can find in the park or at home). And when we are done we publish our creations to Facebook. See how kids are talented in this gallery.

FOREIGN LANGUAGE

We learn the basics of English using words, playing cards and educational PC programs but always as a game. We name things, distinguish colors and learn to count. Most of our clients are parents of children with some Foreign background so focusing on Czech and English alike is highly appreciated.

SWIMMING

Every Thursday we go swimming with children to the nearby Sokol Královské Vinohrady, where we have a rented kids' pool just for ourselves.

THEATER AND OTHER EVENTS

With our children, we we practice our favourite fairy tales and we do thematic events such as Halloween, Mikuláš, etc. Regurarly, theater groups visit us in the kindergarten or we visit them.
