Proven teaching methods with great results
In order to develop the personality of the children, we strive to be their partner, to accept them as they are, to recognise them as a personality, to listen to them and to develop their potentiality. The developmental prerequisites and abilities of children require applying appropriate methods and forms of work in pre-school education.
We use mainly the following methods:
Experiential and cooperative learning by play and children's activities based on the child's direct experiences, encourage children's curiosity and the need to discover, stimulate the child's enjoyment of learning, their interest in learning new things, gaining experience and controlling other skills. In education, the natural flow of children's thoughts and spontaneous ideas should be used, and the child should have enough space for spontaneous activities and their own plans. Learning activities should therefore take place in the form of a non-binding child's play, which the child deals with on the basis of their own interest and choice.
Situational learning is based on the creation and exploitation of situations that provide the child with comprehensible practical examples of living relationships so that the child learns skills and knowledge when they need them and better understands their meaning.
Spontaneous social learning Spontaneous social learning is based on the principle of natural imitation. Therefore, it is necessary in all activities and situations that occur during the day in our kindergarten, not only in didactic activities, to provide the child with patterns of behavior and attitudes that are appropriate for imitation and adoption.
Children's play and creative playwright is another important method based primarily on the principle of play and experience.
Learning through play, creativity, fun and inspiration
A safe and cozy environment
Our kindergartens have cozy and modern toys and classrooms as well as beautifully landscaped gardens. A wide range of teaching aids and toys which correspond to the age needs of children, are a matter of course.Children are provided the opportunity to use montessori utensils and educational toys of various levels. The classrooms are richly equipped with art materials that are used daily.
In our modern and clean hygienic facilities, we provide safe antibacterial self-service soaps, hand dryers, etc. In the sleepingroom we provide children a pleasant, soothing kind of music. We pay close attention to compliance with hygiene standards. Every child has a crib and clean bed sheets. The supply of fresh air in all the games is a daily necessity
In our school gardens, you can also find educational toys, such as traffic signs, games, etc. The toys features in the garden are certified and reviewed annually. In the summer months, children can refresh themselves in a pool or under a children's sprinkler which they like to play under.
In the warm summer months we take care that children are given sun cream, wear summer hats and sunglasses.In winter, we pay attention to warm clothes, and face creams are also available for sensitive children.
VWe pay close attention to safety, so picking up children from the nursery is conditional upon filling out a form in which the child's legal guardian determines who is entitled to pick up the child from the nursery.
Healthy eating for children and staff
We take care of healthy and high-quality eating for our pre-school children and therefore we work with the Czech company Bionea, which cooks as much as possible from local organic food sources. Bionea takes into account all nutritional requirements for proper meal composition and also caters for parents who require special meals for their children. Therefore, gluten-free, egg-free and dairy-free foods are also available for us.
There is of course a choice between meat and vegetarian meals.
As well as lunch, snacks are supplemented by a regular supply of fruits and vegetables.
At Wonderland nursery we strive for the best possible diet for our children, which is balanced and accommodates to mordern child nutrition requirements.
Compliance to a drinking regime is a sure thing. Children are given fresh water. We also have available bio tea of all types and milk.
