FLORENTINUM 

BRITISH NURSERY & PRESCHOOL

Academics

To ensure that all our pupils have the knowledge, skills and attitudes needed to be self-reliant, responsible and contributing members of society, we use the most advanced study programmes based on the combination of two curricula: the National Curriculum of England and Wales and the Czech Curriculum Framework.

Resource lessons

As Jan Amos Komensky wrote, “Much can be learned in play that will afterwards be of use.” Not only do games amuse the children but they also help stimulate their physical development and teach them important social skills.

Admissions

Admission to Florentinum British Nursery & Preschool is open to all children of appropriate age, regardless of their race, nationality, religion or first language. Anyone who might benefit from the education offered and for whom the school can provide a suitable environment may attend.
"Florentinum has been a safe and happy place for my son. Ms Elizabeth and Ms Therese are a good team. The communication has been great since they teamed up. I love the pictures sent through the newsletter every Friday so I can see parts of my son's day. We appreciate their efforts to help our son grow socially and in his academic skills."
Kateřina Novotná
"When we moved from Japan, Kento was very nervous about the idea of going to kindergarten. It took only a month after I enrolled him in Florentinum preschool before he was enthusiastically engaged in every activity and program the school offered. I was very glad to see his reluctance change to eagerness."
The Oshiro family
"It was such a good decision to enroll one of my daughters in this warm and loving environment. The whole family was positively affected. With determination and hard work, the leadership and the teachers are constantly improving their school. Wishing Florentinum preschool continuous success."
Elizabeth Anderson
"I think I made the best choice to enroll Ritisha in your preschool. I'm happy to hear so many classroom tales from her each day. I notice that she is overcoming her shyness and is initiating interaction with everyone. I appreciate the efforts made by the teachers and other staff members!"
Kanishka Rajasekaran
"You should know that this preschool is using the latest technology in a really smart way and helping children through a variety of mediums. We are glad that our child is using technology in the right manner at such a young age. Good luck to the Florentinum school!"
Leo & Jane Morris
"As an educator and parent, I can tell you, my husband and I are so very pleased with the Florentinum methods of teaching. We are truly delighted with how our children are embraced, nurtured, and supported by the staff and teachers. Our children are excited to go to school and learn new things each day. The combination of the Montessori teaching methods and philosophy along with a great staff has allowed our children to excel both academically and personally."
Kateřina & John Burrows
"Our Fuji has completed his preschooling here and is well prepared to continue with formal schooling. He gained a basic preparedness and an enthusiasm for learning. He was constantly talking to everyone about his preschool. I personally recommend this school to every preschooler’s mum."
Akari Ogawa
"Florentinum preschool addresses every need of each child, ranging from education needs to emotional and social wellbeing. It’s wonderful to have a safe environment for children outside the home. Thanks for grooming my child. I recommend this school to every parent seeking to give their child the best start in life."
Anatolii Larin
"On our first visit to Florentinum Preschool, our children felt so welcomed and comfortable, they wanted to start attending that very day! We love the environment and are so pleased with the balance of Montessori practices accompanied by worthwhile activities such as music, Czech, dance, science and art classes. It’s great to see them enjoy learning in so many different ways. Thanks, Klára!"
Albert Yalumbu with his wife
This place has really been great for our Helenka. She has thrived at Florentinum, and they have really helped us as parents to foster her intellectual curiosity and development. It's clear she is loved and we couldn't be happier with the staff, especially Ms Bianca and Ms Soňa, who have clearly taken a real interest in helping her grow and be the best she can be in this world.
Rodina Halíkova
"I believe our family needed to experience other facilities first in order to truly appreciate and benefit from Florentinum. We feel extremely blessed to have found such a wonderful group of teachers and staff. Charlotte loves her teachers. She tells me every morning, “Mommy, today I go to school.” Even on Saturday and Sundays! Florentinum preschool is amazing, period! Thank you, everyone, we are so glad that we found you!"

Coronavirus | 05. 03. 2021
Dear Parents, on Tuesday our entire preschool was disinfected with PHMG polymer air sanitizer. We can say with certainty that our preschool is a clean and healthy place to be. The substance fights against viruses and micro bacterias in accordance with state standard ČSN EN 14476 and ČSN EN 14348. It is not hazardous to human, animal, or plant health. The sanitizer does not irritate the eyes or mucous membranes, nor does it cause allergic reactions. Due to its unique properties, it has a strong biocidal effect against viruses, bacteria and fungi. We are glad that we can continue to provide a safe and enriching environment for your children.
