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?
Davídek started going to Bambíno when he was less than one year old, first for one day a week, then we increased the number of days. Today, he is six and he has become an “old Bambíno child”. He has come to like the nursery and the kindergarten very much. The attitude of the teachers as well as the administrative team at the kindergarten is warm and professional. There is a pleasant family atmosphere, I was really amazed by the kindergarten facilities, equipment and the garden. Children have a varied programme every day, they are in an international society, and I consider the organic food as a big plus. When I needed to arrange anything, the kindergarten management always accommodated my wishes. Frankly, there has been no problem at all during those six years. We found Bambíno on the internet, it is near our home and it was the first (and the last) kindergarten where I went to take a look. After the first visit, it was clear that Davídek would go there.
Georgia & Jessie have been attending Bambino for 2 years. What initially attracted me was the beautiful villa, conveniently located to my home and work and the fact that it provided both Nursery and Preschool facilities under one roof. We have been very happy with the program and staff during our time here. Bambino has always been extremely flexible to our needs. For example: My older daughter Georgia participates in the Czech program 2 days per week (to provide her with the opportunity to learn the language) and the English program 3 days per week. When my younger daughter Jessie was ready to start the transition from Nursery to Preschool, she started to attend a half day with the big children (when she was in the mood) until she was ready to move full time to the Preschool. My older daughter will start school in September and Bambino has given her a great start. She has already learned basic reading, writing and number puzzles so she can be confident while adjusting to her new environment. Thanks Bambino - we will miss you!
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.
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.
