Pre-school section uses an informal and fun approach to teach pre-school children the Czech language through art, music and other creative activities, helping to familiarise them with Czech environment and culture. The classes employ “total immersion” methods, where the child is taught in an exclusively Czech environment where he/she can come to understand the language faster and adopt it in the most natural way.
Children explore art techniques through interesting topics, sing Czech songs, learn basic music and dancing, and develop their language along the way. Emphasis is put on integrating Czech cultural references such as poems, rhymes and well-known games. From time to time we put on a play for families and friends where we show what we have learned, using pantomime, shadow theatre, music…
Who is it for?
For pre-school Czech/English bilingual children from 2 to 5 years of age. It takes place on Saturday mornings, with the school dates following the British school terms.
We aim to encourage the children to express themselves and build up their cultural linguistic knowledge through songs, rhymes, games and creative activities, in order to provide valuable groundwork for the Czech School.
