Courses and Other Activities

Regular Courses

Monday

Creative Workshops

Children explore their creativity through projects that teach a variety of techniques for using materials like ceramics, paints, glue, play dough and many natural resources.

Trainees and English Teachers assist this course. Every Monday 3.30pm – 4.30pm.

Tuesday

Health and Fitness

On Tuesdays we alternate between balancing exercises for children and Yoga in combination with Tai Chi for children.
During balancing exercises for children, we use balancing balls and boards. Children learn to breath properly, to practice healthy standing and walking postures, and to stretch all their muscles in order to improve their physical health. The instructor for this course is Martina Voplatková.

During Yoga in combination with Tai-Chi the children enjoy imitating animals such as tigers, bears or birds and natural features like sea waves, and walking on the moon or dancing with ribbons. These activities help to develop their imagination and to improve their memory and flexibility. They also help children to become less restless, anxious, and worried. These types of exercises, when practiced regularly, help improve mental and physical health.

Trainees and English Teachers assist at this course. Every Tuesday 10am – 11am.

Thursday

Swimming

Every Thursday we take the children to a modern swimming pool. Here they split their time between swimming lessons with a trained lifeguard and free time where the children can play and enjoy the water.

This course is not included in the school fee.

Every Thursday 10am – 11am.

Friday

Little Cook

On Friday’s the children have the opportunity to learn how to prepare different dishes and learn about the origins of the raw cooking ingredients. This experience is hands on; the children cook their afternoon snacks or other delicious meals by themselves. This broadens their fantasy and their cooking skills as well as math skills and teaches patience.

Every Friday morning.
