ABOUT US

Global Preschool is a nurturing early years community for children from 6 months to 6 years of age. The school first opened its doors in 1996, offering a Montessori based progressive preschool program.

In August 2006 GCIS moved to a renovated villa in the quiet picturesque, country setting of Šárka’s valley. A new toddler school was added in 2018 giving younger children their own unique space. In 2019 another Primary Learners program was added so parents from other Prague neighborhoods could also take advantage of our unique program.

The aim of our preschool is to have happy and confident children who will develop with a healthy awareness and appreciation of others and the environment. We look forward to working with you and your child. Please call and schedule a visit with us.

OUR TEAM

All our staff are chosen to enhance our friendly, family atmosphere and come from all corners of the globe. We have a strong history of staff and student retention, leading to long-term relationships. Our teachers are highly qualified, experienced, and are deeply committed to our school and its mission. All of our teachers hold a diploma from an accredited Montessori training program. (AMI, NAMC) We work with a Child Psychologist, Pediatrician and a Nutritionist on a regular basis.

OUR DAY

Our day is packed full of play and learning. We believe it is our understanding of education and focus on detail which makes our offering unique.

We offer a range of activities and concepts to provide the best in wellbeing, learning and safety. We believe that a little structure, routine and adult focused activities can aid children immensely in their development. However, we also value the importance of child initiated play, that’s why we have a balance between Montessori and Early childhood learning. This is to ensure the greatest opportunities for children to learn and develop in all areas.

Parents and potential families are more than welcome to come in and observe our class rooms.

PROGRAM

The first few years of a child’s life are the most formative years. It is a time when children effortlessly absorb concepts and habits. It is also the period when the roots for a love of learning are established. School should be a safe, exciting, and joyful environment where children feel as free and secure as they do at home.

OUR CURRICULUM

At Global Preschool, the child is at the center of all we do. We believe that children thrive in a playful environment that supports their development of a lifelong love of learning. Children’s development is nurtured on a continuous and individual basis. Teachers gain deep insight into children’s development using observation, conversation, a standardized norm-referenced developmental screening, and meetings with parents.

Classroom experiences are planned based on our teachers’ extensive knowledge of child development and their in-depth understanding of each individual child. The curriculum is also informed by children’s curiosity, community events or resources, family interests, and topics that are worthwhile and relevant. Our program goals for children include the development of:

  • A positive self-image.
  • An enthusiasm for learning and becoming an active, self-directed learner.
  • Pro-social behavior and skills such as engaging in collaborative play, resolving conflict with others, and functioning in large group interactions.
  • Self-help skills that foster health and independence.
  • A feeling of community and the development of respect
    and empathy for others.
  • Emerging cognitive, social, language, and physical skills.
  • Confidence to reach their individual potential.
  • Nurturing the future

EARLY LEARNERS

The toddler years, are an exciting time of firsts in the lives of young children and families. At Global Pre school we encourage toddlers’ development of a positive self-concept and the social and language skills needed for successful peer interactions.
Peer interactions grow more robust as children’s language skills begin to flourish and they have increased interest in cooperative play. We support children’s peer interactions by providing a safe environment for children to practice their negotiation and communication skills.

Toddlers are ready to assert their independence. We are supportive of their growing autonomy and provide children with numerous opportunities to exercise their self-help skills while also offering nurturing support when it is needed. We promote children’s development of empathy by offering a variety of opportunities for perspective-taking through the use of literature, role playing, and other group activities.
When planning a curriculum teachers take full advantage of the limitless opportunities that exist in our community, such as frequent walks in the neighborhood, forest adventures, visits to the farm, exploring the great outdoors, and visits from local artists, musicians, and more.

PRIMARY LEARNERS

Preschoolers are curious about the world around them. At Global preschool, teachers respond to children’s natural inquisitiveness and allow the children to drive the focus of the classroom curriculum.
During the preschool years, children are strengthening the social, cognitive, and motor skills they developed during toddlerhood. At our school we nurture children’s emerging self-concept and support the development of positive self-esteem by supporting peer interactions and emphasizing cooperative play.

As preschoolers develop more of an awareness of the world around them, they typically begin to be more interested in literacy and numeracy. We respond to this emerging interest in a variety of ways, including daily numeracy activities, making available fiction and nonfiction books for children to read with a teacher or independently, integrating opportunities to practice handwriting into multiple areas of the classroom, daily opportunities for building with a variety of materials, and opportunities to practice math, science, geography, the arts and language skills with direct teacher support.

Learning in our preschool classrooms is experiential – children test theories and practice skills in hands-on ways. We emphasize the importance of a social-emotional framework that is the foundation of future academic and social success.
We believe that our preschool is just the right start to your child’s educational journey!

Allergen-free morning

In cooperation with Mr. and Mrs. Anděl’s foundation “Bez Alergenů, z.s.” we have started a brand new program called “Allergen-free Mornings.” The amount of children with serious food allergies is dramatically increasing during the last decade. We have decided to adapt the morning regime of our kindergarten to completely eliminate all four life-threatening allergens.

That is milk and all dairy products, nuts, eggs and fish. In the morning, we only serve children vegetable and fruit products for snacks according to individual agreement with the parents of the allergic child. A trained nurse equipped with the necessary medications and adrenaline injectors is present during the morning program. We are glad to be now open and helping take care of the safety of kids with serious food allergies.

TRANSITION POLICY

We are committed to developmentally appropriate practice. Children are especially susceptible to changes in routine, new environments and to separation from their parents or guardians. It is particularly difficult for children to be placed into the care of someone with whom they are not familiar. Therefore, we have developed a highly effective, developmentally appropriate plan for transitioning children into our center and, once they have entered our program, from one class to another.

Our transition process is designed to build trust between the children, their teachers and their parents. Our focus on trust builds community. Everyone helps everyone in order to provide an environment where our children can relax, observe, learn, and grow. Our transitions work because we respect the children in our care and strive to help them make our school their home away home.

SUMMER CAMPS

We are happy to announce our Summer of Play Camps, which will take place every year. We prepare many amazing activities to make your child’s summer unforgettable.

For more information or to reserve a space, please contact us.

HOLIDAY CLUB

Through summer school children enjoy a nurturing, non-competitive learning environment. We are lucky to have a beautiful garden with lots of trees (providing shade during hot days) where many of our activities take place. Summer school involves music, sports, history, science, cooking, horseback riding, arts & craft. Children are also able to benefit by programs that help develop exploration of other countries and customs. Each day children also enjoy nature discovery and games. Our summer school activities are fun and theme orientated.

MEMBERSHIP & ACCREDITATION

We are proud to be members of institutions that continuously evaluate our preschool to help us make improvements ensuring that we always provide the highest quality programs for our children.

TRANSPORTATION
