Welcome to Tučňákov!
We accept children from 12 months of age. We prefer an individual approach and we guarantee a small number of children in each group. We give way to children's natural curiosity and develop a love of discovering things. Thanks to our professional care and above-standard equipment, we received the Nursery of the Year and Kidergarten of the Year award.
Školka a jesličky jsou nádherné, komunikace, pedagogové a prostředí - všechno je na 5 ***** můj syn hodí do školky jenom 1 měsíc a už každý víkend mi ptá kdy půjde znova :)
Doporučujem všetkými srdiečkami, ktoré máme. Na začiatku prebehla skvela komunikácia a rychla adaptácia syna. "Tety" aj majitelka škôlky - sú profesionálne, milé a majú prirodeznú autoritu! Vymýšlajú bohaté programy na každý deň, vnútorné priestory a zahrádka sú dokonalé. Náš syn sa každé ráno teší do škôlky <3 Tučňákov je súčasť nášho života a nemenili by sme! Lucia
Tučňákov jsme s dcerou Eliškou objevily náhodou při procházce, prohlédla jsem si webovky a rozhodla se, že se poptáme osobně. Od toho momentu - první návštěvy na zkoušku - je to jednoznačná volba! Eliška si moc oblíbila tety, děti i prostředí a jejímu rozvoji program jesliček a následně i školky jen a jen prospívá. Zkrátka Tučňákov miluje a za nic na světě by jej nevyměnila, stejně jako já. Tety odvádí skvělou práci a já jsem moc vděčná za šťastné a spokojené dítě! Takže děkuji a vřele doporučuji!
Dcera chodí do Tučňákova od 14 měsíců a je tam naprosto spokojená ???? Kolikrát ani nechce jít domů. Všechny "tety" jsou moc milé a ve všem nám vycházejí vstříc. Vymýšlejí pro děti pořád nové aktivity a dětem se opravdu věnují. Veliká výhoda Tučňákova je krásná zahrada. Za nás naprostá spokojenost ????
Tučňákov doporučujeme na 100%. Čenda nastoupil na částečnou docházku už ve dvou letech, byl maličký, a tak pro nás bylo důležité, aby se na novém místě neztratil a měl v "tetách" podporu a oporu. Což se stalo. Kolektiv Tučňákova je jedinečný, vládne tam nadšení a dobrá naláda, ale taky ochota vyjít vstříc a spolupracovat, vnímat děti jako individuality, které mají různé potřeby. Syn tam strávil krásné dva roky, užil si spoustu aktivit, skvělé zahrady, udělal obrovské pokroky.

Every proper penguin should speak at least two languages. In additon to the children's native language and its development, we offer English lessons with a native speaker. The children learn new words, sing songs and learn a foreign language in a fun way.
We are preparing various creative activities of an artistic or productive nature. We paint, draw, model, glue, cut, build, and we love doing all of it. This course promotes the development of aesthetic feeling, creativity, imagination and perseverance, and develops fine motor skills.
Sometimes we also cook or bake something for ourselves. We can either eat it together or leave it for Mom or Dad. We enjoy mixing dough, cutting out shapes, brushing and decorating. We try to not only prepare sweets but also healthy, colorful food.

What would it be like if we didn't sing every day? The answer is clear: Sad! And we don't want that. We rehearse well-known folk songs with piano accompaniment. Sometimes we also dance. We pretend to be musicians - we have a wide range of Orff instruments. We learn to recognize sounds and noises. We often get various musical riddles.
Medical exercises compiled specifically according to a child's anatomy to help them develop proper posture. We learn the techniques of breathing, stretching, relaxation and imagination, all adapted to bring joy to children.
We learn to make puppets, our own costumes, we develop dramatic feeling; this is a thematically focused course including singing, recitation, listening to fairy tales, dramatic rendering.
This course helps build a relationship with nature, plants, animals, garden care. It develops cooperation and responsibility, and it also helps build new friendships with our animal pets. In this way, children learn with all their senses what caring for animals and the garden entails.
The dance school for our little ones offers elements of ballet, Latin American rhythms, folk music. Multicultural dance.
A fun way of practicing language skills. We have countless techniques and activities to practice correct pronunciation.
Magda is the author and director of the project. She received a master's degree in psychology. She also studied preschool and special pedagogy. She is currently a trainee of psychotherapeutic training in cognitive behavioral therapy with prof. Ján Prašek at Mezinárodní institut KBT - Odyssea.
In her teaching practice and after experience from other establishments, she found that something needed to be changed. "Kindergartens are overfull, parents are hopeless, teachers are irritated. Unfortunately, the consequences of this are borne by the wrong people. The aim of the Tučňákov kindergarten and nursery school is to create an environment that children look forward to; a calm, family environment with quality care and an individual approach to all participants in the education process. According to our obtained references and awards, we seem to be succeeding. We want to be partners and guides for children on their journey through childhood. Being around children is very fulfilling. A good educator must find a piece of the child's soul in himself and give the child space to realize it." She enjoys working with children for their authenticity, spontaneity and pure joy of life. She is fascinated by every, even the slightest, progress in development and is happy if she can participate in this process, observe it and support it in all directions. You won't find her in an office, she's with the children.

"For me, Tučňákov is not about numbers, because working with and for children can only be done with the heart."

"I love the sincerity of children, the sheer joy of everything around. The way they experience things is also amazing, how they are focused on the here and now. I would like to be the best guide for children in a world that is new to them. I want to create a safe, loving environment in which children feel happy. I love to introduce them to and teach them new things in the form of a game."
She was fascinated with working with children since she was a little girl as she took care of her younger siblings. During her studies, she used to babysit children in families and children in a dance studio during ongoing courses. She developed her experience by reading pedagogical literature and following psychological and pedagogical documents. She is now preparing to complete a professional course specialized in working with children before the start of compulsory schooling. She likes making creative products with children the most, and she tries to lead children to physical activity through various types of activities. In her free time she enjoys dancing, sports, pair acrobatics, creative work and reading books. Children and sports are the best relaxation for her.
"The greatest reward for me is when I can put a smile on a child's face. I love teaching children new things and their sincere joy when they manage to take a new step forward. I am fascinated by the development of their personalities and I want to help them develop this side as much as possible."
She began her career studying social care. She continued her studies at the Vyšší odborná škola pedagogická a sociální (Higher Vocational School of Pedagogy and Social Sciences), where she obtained the title of graduate specialist. During her studies, she had the opportunity to learn about the diversity of the profession, which this field undoubtedly provides. She gained practical experience in hobby and educational institutions for children and youth. She thus became acquainted with the content and scope of work in nurseries, kindergartens and organized children's summer camps, and she also peeked into the administrative area within the OSPOD institution. In her free time, she likes to relax while listening to music or reading books. She most enjoys keeping children occupied by singing, dancing or painting, which are her strengths.
"I always enjoyed working with children, it was the right challenge for me. I therefore knew what I wanted to do after I finished my studies. Every child is a personality that inspires me with its development. The child's world is clean and open to all possibilities. It's a place where everyone can be whatever they want. That's why I enjoy being part of the children's team and helping children discover endless possibilities."

"What I like most about working with children in kindergarten is the diversity. The opportunity to educate and enrich children in various ways is a fulfilling aspect for me."
