Children aged 6-36 months are welcome throughout the year on working days from 7.15 to 17.45.


We provide a place in two age groups: junior (about 8 children) and senior group (about 10 children).


Small groups allow to take care of little children better, and it is easier for older children to play and participate in classes professionally supervised by our qualified staff.


We take very good care of little children.


We gradually teach them new skills to help them co-participate nicely in a peer group.


The best possible information flow between the parents/guardians and the aunts is very important for us to provide our pupils with conditions as similar to their home conditions as possible, and to make the time spent in the First Step as enjoyable as possible and support the children's development in many aspects.


Children don't have plenty of extra classes here because properly led play at the nursery age is the best way to support their development. The new environment is challenging enough for such little children and there is no need to additionally burden them with a busy schedule of additional classes. We must also give them some time for "exploring the world freely" through play inspired by the little kids themselves.


We want each child to take at least a short nap during their whole day spent in the nursery school. Such little children need a moment to calm down, take a rest and regenerate their strength to have more fun later.

We are open to your ideas and suggestions.
