English Outdoor Preschools


Vyšehrad Monsters and Libeň Monsters are outdoor preschool clubs, managed by a non-profit association without support of the Ministry of Educaion. The all-day program is in English and follows the Framework Education Programme for Preschool Education, thus fully complying with general requirements for subsequent enrollment at any primary school. However, they are a unique alternatives to other preschools with own concept based on four main principles:

"OUTDOOR" - maximum stay outdoors no matter the weather

"URBAN" - the city as a natural environment for kids living in Prague

"ENGLISH" - English program with internation team of teachers

"COMMUNITY" - individual approach with a small heterogenous group

Outdoor Monsters


In many respects, we follow the idea of forest preschools that have become a popular alternative to the traditional preschool system. They emphasize outdoor education, learning outside of typical classrooms and in more exterior environment (for futher information go to: Learning outdoors has a positive effect on child's overall development, creative thinking, forming relationships with nature and better physical endurance. For this purpose, we decided to use several parks, which are quite well-known spots for Prague children. Nevertheless, the club has its own indoor facilities, where children meet in the morning and reunite with their parents in the afternoon and which is their resting place/shelter in case of exceptionally bad weather. For this purpose, we have own small house in the backyard of a residential building. Besides spending time in neighbourhood parks, we also regularly go for trips into the wilder nature. The environmental education is an integral part of the program and is also reflected in the everyday management of the club with a minimum impact on the environment.

Urban Monsters


It is very natural for Prague children to move around in a city environment while being outdoors. Therefore, we believe that it is as important to learn in and from nature as to recognize the patterns of city living. Thus our programme includes walks around the city, discussions about its architecture, technical excursions to various monuments, using public transport, visiting theatres/galeries/libraries. In this concern, our activities will depend on what children are specifically interested in in their neighborhood and what they wish to learn about it.

English Monsters


Our all-day English programe familiarizes children with this foreign language in a playful and natural way. Due to years of experience and the knowledge of our teachers, we know that purely English environment greatly facilitates learning and adopting the new language. It is extremely easy for children in a preschool age to adapt to foreign languages and such capability brings them tremendous benefits for their future lives. The possibility and also the need to speak English is highlighted by the international team of teachers. Although the programme is in English, there is also a Czech teacher with excellent English skills present to help children in everyday challenging situations.

Community Monsters

The club is purposely focused on a small group of eighteen children who are accompanied by our three teachers. The group is mixed in age. Kids from 2 to 6 years old are being educated together regardless of their different abilities and learning assumptions, which are perceived by us as an opportunity for mutual enrichment, rather than as a limitation.

There is an emphasis on an individual approach to each child to create relationships of mutual trust and inspiration between each child and our teachers. The communication with parents is also important for us in order to find a mutual understanding of what is best for their children.
