We raise

International preschool and nursery in Prague with focus on arts

Malvína is a selective private international preschool with accreditation and focus on arts in Prague 8. 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 can be assertive and empathetic at the same.

„I founded Malvína in 2013 with a goal of developing and supporting children’s own desires and provide them with a place where they can simply be happy children. Emphasizing their artistic side which develops the soul and feeling but also to show them boundaries and develop a sense of duty. Keeping their word. Speaking the truth. In a nutshell, to raise confident children who will be happy and 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 annoying adult. However, surround the child with love and motivation and they will grow into a strong, positive personality.

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

We lead children to love art and creation, which makes them experience all the same emotions we adults know – the joy of a beautiful picture or the disappointment when they stain it, teamwork on joint projects and the first feelings of responsibility in their individual activities.

In each such activity, we provide the children with attention and help them process all these emotions. Each class averages less than 20 children taken care of at least 2 teachers and 1 assistant, so we 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 their practice of new activities.

It’s amazing to see them gaining confidence every week and month and becoming committed to increasingly complex projects ♥

What makes Malvína special?

One of Malvína’s huge strengths is that approximately half of the children here have at least one foreign parent. Children in our country usually speak Czech and English, they are in touch with various customs and personalities. When working in teams they empathize with one another other more and seek compromise.

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

Of course, we offer top equipment, maximum safe spaces and extracurricular activities such as canistherapy, visits to museums, webinars, clubs, and project days.

Our goal is to send confident children to the first grade who do not want to lie and cheat to succeed. We lead children to fair play, strong friendships through teamwork and healthy self-confidence.

We introduce them to the basics of English, an appreciation for art and creation, as well as a lot of knowledge thanks to our unique project days.
