We are Bambíno - international nurseries and kindergartens for children from 6 weeks to 7 years old.
Bambíno has been here for children since 2009; and has been accredited by the Ministry of Education since 2010.
Bambíno kindergarten was established by Lucie Pivoňková and Tomáš Trnka, because their previous work in development no longer satisfied them. So they tried to invent something meaningful, what would also be fun for others, and they established the first Bambino branch in Dejvice, Prague. They became bricklayers and painters for a while, in order to open a beautiful and modern kindergarten for the first few children in September 2009. Together with experts, they drew up their own educational programme “Big Things For Little People” and, as a result, achieved accreditation from the Ministry of Education. Once the kindergarten became full it proved the kindergarten concept prepared by them can be successful so they opened another branch in Vinohrady, Prague. But they have not stopped at the kindergarten stage because from the very beginning they wanted to continue with children’s education. Thus, Square Elementary School will continue this unique educational concept from September 2018.
What are parents saying about us?
Our three years old daughter Alžběta has been attending Bambíno kindergarten for almost two years. We can count on a professional approach of all employees. We very appreciate a nice consistency to children but reasonable benevolence to us, working parents.
Our daughter Alica started with attending Bambíno in Dejvice at the age of two years and nine months. We started with one day a week, then three days a week and, after a year, with the whole week. As always, the beginning was hard, but Bambíno’s teachers/educators were very helpful with their kind and understanding approaches. On the very first day Alica brought home her first “work of art” made by her and her friends (a bag with lavender). These first experiences with Bambíno are characteristic for the kindergarten in a way. Bambíno offers time flexibility, which is, considering our work duties, a great extra value. We especially appreciate non-stop operation during the summer holidays. The education in Bambíno is amazingly creative. Children create their small works almost every day and I’m positively surprised by innovation of the activities. There are often thematic days or weeks in Bambíno and our child then surprises us with her newly acquired knowledge (such as information of the universe). We also appreciate very much that children are led to independent performance and behaviour. The presence of English lecturers is another great extra value. In my opinion, it's not necessary to learn English at this age; however, in Bambíno our daughter learns English absolutely naturally from other children and English-speaking lecturers. Nevertheless, we mostly appreciate human and kind approach of teachers and educators. They approach our children individually upon their needs and they do it with enthusiasm and a lot of patience. They teach the children in a very non-violent manner, how to respect and honour their friends. I’d like to use this opportunity to thank Bambíno for creating such an amazing environment. Alica really likes going to kindergarten and we reckon on Bambíno for our second daughter Olívia too.
When we moved to Dejvice, I was a total stranger. I had nobody to ask for an advice regarding kindergarten for my son. There was nothing left just to start the internet and read references. Since I was about to start a new job and my son was only a bit older than two years, I’d been searching in the sector of private kindergartens that are quite hugely populated in Prague 6! And I found Bambíno! They took care of me there and showed me their system of work. I was amazed. I have to appreciate high professionality towards children and openness towards parents in every respect! When I come to kindergarten to pick up my children, every teacher knows, where I can find them and what’s new! I must admit that sometimes I’m tired, when coming to kindergarten, but I always find smiling teachers and a beautiful, chill-out, and positive mood there. I’d also like to mention my pleasure from the male element present in kindergarten, it’s a totally different dimension for the children! :) As for the English language, our son’s English skills was not our priority. But after three years we can see that our son understands English speaking, he has a good vocabulary and he quite naturally got aware of the fact that there are also other languages than Czech. I could continue and provide other superlatives about “our” kindergarten! The perfect preparation of children for schools, varied programmes and so on… I think everything just proves the fact what a beautiful spirit is present in Bambíno and that me and my husband had not a second thought of taking our son to another kindergarten!!! I believe we couldn’t invest our money better!!!!:) I’m grateful for such people as employees in Bambíno and for the chance of sharing the experience with our second son. Thank you
We do our best when taking care of your/our children. Therefore, we carefully select our “big people”.
Our team consists of teachers – men and women, specialists (logopaedics, special pedagogics, psycho-social consultants), nurses, and since we are an international Czech-English kindergarten, naturally also native English speakers.
