The World of Bambino


“Big Activities for Little People” 

Our educational programme is designed to teach children skills they will use throughout their lives. The goal is to let children try as many things as possible on their own, to experience them with all their senses, and to learn from them. This is why we have dedicated spaces for children to participate in various activities. They may care for plants and animals, cook in our kitchen, make ceramics, develop musical abilities, participate in sports outside or in the gym, and work with digital education technologies. They can also learn to relax, as we have our own on-premises sauna.


Our kindergarten takes care of your children, treating them as if they were our own. We celebrate their achievements, happiness, and warmth. We strive to find each child’s potential and develop it. Together we learn, play, conduct experiments, and support and love each other while also looking for and setting boundaries. And while we are developing children, we are also developing our own skills and abilities in children’s support and development.

Well-Balanced Child Development

We pay attention to the development of numerous skills: hearing, vision, language, pre-mathematical, pre-reading, and motor skills. We also place a focus on emotional intelligence, social skills, fantasy, and empathy. We don’t forget that our children are in kindergarten, so we play and laugh together, sharing both happy and sad moments while growing together.

Preparation for Primary School

From when a child is four years of age, we start focusing on preparing the child for enrolment into primary school. During this preparation we focus on the development of key competencies to facilitate the start of both primary school and those schools further along in the child’s education. Our logopaedists and child development experts work with pre-preschool children and preschool children throughout the entire year.

Extra activities

Beyond the standard curriculum, we also offer the opportunity to enrol children into additional afternoon clubs on the Bambino premises. Children may go to school outdoors in nature twice a year, take part in a week-long cycling, in-line skating, and skating course led by external lecturers, or take part in a sleepover at the school with friends and teachers.

An English Language Education

There is always a Czech teacher and an English teacher in groups of children of older than two years of age, so the children listen to and use both languages. Thanks to this, children not only learn these languages, but they also build a positive relationship with them and they become natural tools of communication for them.


We are an international kindergarten where different cultures, languages, habits, and understandings meet. We prepare a programme for our children that helps them get to know diversity, multiculturality, respect, and inspiration. External experts including parents and relatives are involved in various projects.


Bambino has branches in Dejvice and Vinohrady, both in beautiful buildings with gardens.

Weather permitting, children spend a part of every day outdoors, either in the garden or on a field trip. The building’s internal spaces offer various rooms adapted for specific activities: a ceramics room, a gym, a room with an interactive activity board, a music room, a sauna, and a kitchen.

Our Garden

Our school features a large garden with lots of foliage including big trees that provide shade, monkey bars for everyday play, mist showers for summer refreshment, and a little hill for sledding during the winter. In Dejvice, we breed Cameroon dwarf goats and take care of them together with the children. In Vinohrady, a mud kitchen is available for children to use.

The majority of the garden’s surface is covered with a special material for softer landings. There are also sandpits, slides, swings, and sports equipment to use, including small motorbikes.

Age Groups

Nursery        Kindergarten        Pre-preschoolers        Preschoolers

Nursery | Bambíno babies 6 weeks – 2 years old

We take care of the littlest Bambino babies in our nursery to help them feel like they’re at home. We realise trust and a sense of security is crucial at this age; therefore, there is a smaller number of children and a larger number of teachers in this group. The environment is designed to be safe while remaining stimulating and interesting. We select toys and educational equipment so that babies will have fun while developing skills and abilities. And since the nursery is located in a building with a garden, the babies can go outdoors to feel fresh air every day, weather permitting.


Preschool | Bambíno babies 2 – 3 years old

Children from the age of two can be found in preschool with a Czech teacher and native English speaker. Bambino babies are exposed to a wide range of experiences, including an art and ceramics workshop, a music room, a gym, and a garden. They can also use the sauna in the school building and cook and bake in the kitchen. Bambino babies also go on various excursions and walks, and take care of plants and animals. Children are taught to be independent and respect others. At the same time, they are given much-needed free time for play and entertainment.


Kindergarten | Bambíno children 3 – 4 years old

Children from two years of age are placed in kindergarten with a Czech and native English teacher. Kindergarteners at Bambino are given an opportunity to try many things. They create in arts and ceramics workshops; spend time in the music room, gym, and outdoor area; visit the sauna in the school facility; cook and bake in the kitchen; travel on various excursions and strolls; look after plants and animals; and learn to be independent and respectful to others. Throughout all of this, they still are given the necessary free time for fun and games.

Pre-preschoolers  | Bambíno children 4 – 5 years old

Pre-preschool children are placed with a Czech teacher and a native English speaker. Since children at this age are preparing for later schooling, they are also given pre-preschool “preparation” in the form of Taiji. Taiji consists of logical games and toys used to understand emotions (Emušáci) that allow for a natural enrolment into school. Pre-preschoolers are under the supervision of logopaedists to identify possible needs. Children also create in arts and ceramics workshops; visit the music room, gym, and the outdoor garden; work with an interactive activity board; take saunas at the school sauna; cook and bake in the kitchen; learn to play the flute; go on various excursions and trips; and care for animals and plants, while still having time for fun and games.



Taiji is a combination of exercise and painting. It develops the motor skills of pre-preschoolers and prepares them for writing while at school. This method uses spontaneous physical movement of children, and cultivates it by adding exercise with Taiji elements. It is enhanced by the use of water painting. In this way, writing becomes a conscious act of movement.

Logic games

Logic games are focused on building pre-mathematical skills. Thanks to these games, we can learn and use spatial orientation, geometric shapes, sight and hearing memory and differentiation, drawing, categorisation, estimation, anticipation, fantasy, and time orientation. In preparation, we consider the connection to the classic method of teaching mathematics in primary schools as well as Hejný’s teaching method.

Emotion Toys (Emušáci)

Toys used to understand emotions are used at Bambino for the development of emotional and social intelligence. We discuss Freddie the Frog, who meets a variety of “emotion flies”. A plush Freddie the Frog and his faithful friends accompany us when discussing emotions in class. We use stories to explain when we can feel anger, anxiety, sadness, envy, and other emotions, and how to manage these emotions.

Preschoolers  | Bambíno children from 5 years old

Preschool children are placed with a Czech teacher and a native English speaker. To arrange a smooth transition to regular school, preschoolers go through preschool preparation, which is fun and entertaining, in addition to daily educational programme. This consists of the Good Start Method, logic games, Zipy’s Friends, drama education, the World of Words, and Jolly Phonics. Children learn to play the flute, learning correct breathing and body position. In addition to these preparations, students are under the supervision of a logopaedist. During the day, children create in arts and ceramic workshops; visit the music room, gym, and outdoor garden; use an interactive activity board; visit the sauna at the school; cook and bake in the kitchen; go on various excursions and trips; and look after animals and plants, while still having time for fun and games.


Logic Games

Logic games are focused on building pre-mathematical skills. Thanks to these games, we can learn and use spatial orientation, geometric shapes, sight and hearing memory and differentiation, drawing, categorisation, estimation, anticipation, fantasy, and time orientation. In preparation, we consider the connection to the classic method of teaching mathematics in primary schools as well as Hejný’s teaching method.

Jolly Phonics

Jolly Phonics is an internationally-recognised method for learning to read and write in the English language. Thanks to movements, songs, stories, and pictures, children learn English phones and their correct pronunciation. Reading and writing in the Czech educational system is only taught in primary schools; therefore, in Jolly Phonics we focus on the sound of English phones that will later facilitate reading and writing in English.

Good Start Method

The Good Start Method focuses on the development of hearing, vision, and motor skills. It is a proven initial stage of learning to read and write. We exercise the entire body, including arms and hands. We learn the correct way to grip a pen and sit at a table, as well as the left-right orientation and the coordination of both brain hemispheres. We always work with new graphic signs and learn to draw correctly in both small and large formats. The graphic signs are the cornerstones for the future writing of letters and numbers at school.

The World of Words

The World of Words is ruled by Queen Graphia who, with her helpers, manages all sounds, words, and letters. Her helps include Master Syllabus, Master Longitude, and Phoic the fairy. Her cheeky friends include Bacillus Mistake and two Phonic Eaters. Together with their friends, children solve sound riddles and make words from sounds, phonics, and pictures. Thanks to these activities, preschoolers activate their speech readiness, practising auditory perception and differentiation, phonological manipulation, pronunciation, and analysis and synthesis of words. These activities comprehensively prepare the children for reading and writing.

Zipy’s friends

Zipy’s Friends is a methodology focused on the development of strategies for managing difficult life situations and the development of motor skills. Topically, it is focused on emotions, communication, life changes, relationships, the prevention of bullying, and change and loss management. It uses communication, games, painting activities, and roleplaying to find individual ways to solve daily problems. It teaches children to find an acceptable solution based on two basic criteria: a good solution will help me feel better while at the same time not harming myself or anyone else.

Dramatic Education

Drama education at Bambino is a fun space to express emotions and creative ideas as well as a time when we develop pre-reading skills, cooperation, individuality, auditory memory, language and expression skills, and musical ear and rhythm. We study poems, bring stories to life, play in a band, pantomime, roleplay, rehearse scenes, and play games about something or nothing. We always find time for applause and feedback.
