Magic Rainbow Preschool
English preschool Prague 5
Magic Rainbow Preschool is a total emersion English language school. We provide a fun, safe and loving learning environment where your child’s social, emotional, physical and cognitive development is fostered and their love for knowledge and education is encouraged. We believe that when children are given positive and constructive options to choose from, they will make positive and constructive choices. We maintain a high teacher-to-student ratio of 2 teachers to approximately 14-16 children to ensure that your child’s individual needs are met. Our educational programme concentrates on the development of a child as a whole, as well as paying a great deal of attention to the individual parts of their development
We believe that the teachers and staff should create a happy, engaging atmosphere and interact with children in a warm and friendly way. Our staff help children to develop and express a range of emotional responses that are appropriate for their developmental needs. We believe that children’s self esteem should be fostered in a positive environment and where staff encourage children to have the confidence to try new experiences.
We believe in developing a sense of co-operation and empathy in children through group activities, responsibility, sharing, and guiding children’s behaviour when angry or upset.
It is important for children to develop both fine and gross motor skills. Activities concentrating on developing these skills can increase the child’s attention span, encourage persistence in a task, foster independence, and develop problem solving and thinking skills. The children will be encouraged to develop these skills at their own pace and in a safe environment.
Our curriculum is based on thematic unit of study. A thematic unit provides content as well as a framework for organising learning activities. Through a wide range of subject matter, varied experiences and educational activities encouraging active participation, children develop necessary skills and gain valuable information.
All grown-ups were once children… but only few of them remember it.

About Magic Rainbow preschool
Our Magic Rainbow Preschool is located in a pre-nursery building in a pleasant and calm area of Prague 5 – Hřebenka. The school is surrounded by a large garden which meets all of children´s needs while they are outside.
All lessons are conducted in English which makes it possible for the children to adopt the language naturally in a positive and encouraging enviroment. At present we have two classes with a high teacher-to-student ratio. This ratio gives us the opportunity to pay attention to each child individually and to adjust the education to suit his or her needs. This results in the children learning English with passion and enjoyment. Each class has two teachers, our team consists of native speakers and Czech teachers fluent in English. All teachers are qualified and have a previous experience in teaching.
We offer a wide range of after school activities, such as ballet, dancing, cooking, ball games, tennis. The fees for afterschool activities are not included in the tuitions but full time children (5 times a week 7,30-17,00) can be signed for any two activities for free.

I have been at Magic Rainbow from the first day but it has not changed even a bit of my passion for working with kids. Each day is different and each year
brings something new.
I come from the USA. I love English and I am delighted that as a teacher I can use it while working with children. Their progress makes me so happy.
I was born in the USA, but as I love travelling, the wind has brought me to Prague and I am so happy to be here.
