We raise

International preschool and nursery in Prague with focus on arts

Malvína is a selective private international preschool, located in Prague 8, with accreditation and focus on arts. We also operate an international nursery just a few blocks away. The primary languages of our teachers are Czech and English, but some also speak Spanish, French, Italian, German, or Vietnamese.

Thanks to our programme, children gain healthy self-confidence, can work in a team, and form friendly relations with ease. Our goal is to raise well-rounded personalities perfectly prepared for the transition to first grade and for life.

Children from Malvína are assertive and empathetic at the same.

„I founded Malvína in 2013 with the goal of developing and supporting children’s own desires, while providing them with a place where they can simply be happy children. To place emphasis on their artistic side, which develops the soul and feeling, but to also show them boundaries and help them develop a sense of duty. How to keep their word. How to be truthful. In a nutshell, to raise confident and happy children with strong personalities.

How does it work here?

If you raise a child in an environment that fails to nurture them, they are likely to become an unpleasant adult. However, surround the child with love and motivation and they will grow into a strong, positive being.

And that’s exactly how the Malvína programme is set up.

We lead children to love art and creativity, which helps them experience all the same emotions we adults know – the joy of painting a beautiful picture or the disappointment when it doesn’t turn out how they wanted, teamwork on joint projects, and even the first experience of having individual responsibility for something.

In all such activities we are with the children every step of the way, helping them process any new emotions. All classes average less than 20 children and are taken care of by at least 2 teachers and 1 assistant, so we make sure to have plenty of time for each child.

We praise children for their successes and we also teach them to praise one another. We motivate them to work, even if they are not succeeding at the moment, and we support practice of new activities.

It is amazing to see them gaining more confidence with every coming week and month and to see them become increasingly more committed to complex projects ♥

What makes Malvína special?

One of Malvína’s huge strengths is that approximately half of the attending children have at least one foreign parent. As such, our children usually speak Czech and English and are in touch with various customs and personalities. When working in teams, this allows them to empathize better with one another and come to compromise with ease.

In addition to our carefully selected staff, we also offer the services of a special pedagogue and Sleep coach, who consults on sleep disorders and the creation of a sleep plan with parents. Find out more in the Our Teams section.

Guaranteed is of course top-grade equipment, an emphasis on safety in all of our spaces, but also non-standard extra activities such as Canis therapy, visits to museums, webinars, clubs, and project days.

Our goal is to send children, who are confident and who do not feel the need to lie or cheat to succeed, to the first grade. We lead our children to play fair, form strong friendships through teamwork and to have healthy self-confidence.

We introduce them to the basics of English, we nurture appreciation for art and creativity, as well as help them gain a lot of knowledge thanks to our unique project days.

We are very proud of our interiors. The nursery in Prague Karlín underwent a demanding reconstruction in 2020. The pictures of the new interiors have been published in foreign architecture magazines.
We are now adding a private play park by Atelier344 to the preschool located in the beautiful premises of Futurama Karlín.

Elaborate daily programme

There is one nursery class and three classes available for older children in Malvína. Each class averages less than 20 children and is taken care of by at least 2 teachers and 1 assistant. The red class, our cutest children aged 2-3, for whom everything is very new and unknown, are an exception – they have two trained nannies at hand.

On the following four pages, you can look at each class and find out about their daily programme. It was put together with the help of experienced teachers to ensure maximal personal development, while making sure children do not feel pressured at the same time. All learning takes place in the form of games, movement exercises and communication.
