Kid's Club

Our kid´s club offers daycare as well as short term childminding. Each day has a different theme. Topics for the school year will be announced later, during the holidays the theme is summer.

We believe that each child is unique and therefore we try to provide them with an individual approach which is enabled by keeping the groups of children limited in their numbers. We adapt the program to the age and needs of your child. We learn in a playful way, using simple songs and rhymes to name things in English and gradually expand our vocabulary. We strive to make our activities varied during the day, such as: sensory perception, awareness of the world around us, development of gross and fine motor skills, the improvement of memory and creativity in children. We always allow plenty of time for free play and we are open to any ideas from your children or yourself. Our garden allows us to remain outdoors as much as possible.

Friday mornings belong to children of all ages and their mothers or carers. Come and enjoy your coffee, while we make creative activities and play with your kids. On this day we provide a program for the little ones, beverages and light snacks for their carers. We are equiped with high chairs, changing tables and our spare room can be used for a peaceful breastfeeding.

Language Centre

We offer English courses for children and adults. The schedule will be announced at the beginning of the school year, but you can already contact us about which course you would be interested in. Creating small groups (max. 6 students) allows us to make it easier to agree on a day and time that is most convenient. Courses will begin once a minimum of 4 students have signed up, even during the summer holidays. Individual lessons are available upon request. Apart from the courses, we organize other related activities. In the past we visited London with group of students.

All courses are held in the friendly environment of our classroom. Apart from using textbooks, we provide our students with our own teaching materials. Lessons are led in a communicative method. Our aim is to be able to use language in real life, learn grammar and to be able to communicate. The advantage of studying in small groups makes the lessons more effective. The informal atmosphere is also important so that the student loses their inhibitions to speak.

Courses last 16 weeks, 90 minutes each.

Courses for children

Children learn to use a foreign language adequate to their age to be able to respond to the situation in English. Teaching is based on a communicative method, a combination of games, conversation and practice.

The course lasts 16 weeks, each 45 minutes.

About us

Staff

Already during my studies at the Anglo-American Academy (State Exam in English and FCE), I began studying languages intensively ​​and working with children. My first experience of looking after children was as an assistant in summer camp, then as an au pair in Germany in 2000-2001 (Zertifikat Deutsch ). From 2002-2010 I worked as a professional nanny in different families in Prague and the UK. In 2008-2010 I was also employed at a private nursery school in London and successfully passed NVQ3 in Children Care, Learning and Development (including The First Aid Course), authorizing me to work with the module Early Years Foundation Stage in all pre-school facilities throughout the United Kingdom. I have successfully completed a course called "Carer of children from 0-15 years" accredited by the Ministry of Education. I´m the mother of our 4 year old son. My hobbies are a variety of creative activities, family, learning, teaching children English, traveling, snowboarding and reading.

I started learning English at a primary language school. Later I spent several months on an internship in the U.S., then continued improving the language during my stay in the UK as an Au-Pair, where I earned my first experience looking after children. After returning, I passed SJZ in English and FCE. Since 2001 I have worked as a flight attendant. During the "flying" I graduated from University and externally taught English in many language schools and companies. My hobbies include traveling and scuba diving. Over the last ten years I have visited many countries, especially Asia and Indonesia. I am leading my little daughter towards my hobby of traveling. In Happy Faces I take part as a teacher or asistant to the children in some of the language courses and kid´s activities.
