Clubs and courses

Clubs and courses are integrated into our weekly and yearly educational program and form the stable part of the schedule.

Courses

Our Kindergarten has special sport instructors who cover all the sport courses led over the year focusing on basic seasonal sports including swimming, skiing, skating and tennis. Instructors are part of our team and organize all the courses, so we have full control over the content and the methodology as well as the quality and the extent of the individual progress. One of the biggest advantages is also the fact that they know all the children well as they work with them all over the year. Most of the courses are devoted to children in Reception and Y1 classes. Nursery classes take swimming course only. All the courses are free of charge and expenses concerned are included in school fees.

  • Swimming course

Swimming is an integral part of the educational program for all the children from the age of 2.  In the beginning they take swimming lessons on a weekly basis in our swimming pool at Gajova only. Later on, starting in Reception class they complete an additional intensive swimming course in a bigger training pool. Parents are informed about the child´s progress always at the end of the semester.
