Our approach to children

  1. Objectives

    At Tetty, we provide children with education in Czech and English so that they have the opportunity to make decisions about their future education, whether in the Czech, international or bilingual system. The aim is to give them excellent prospects for admission to different school systems.

  2. Results

    Children from TETTY who move on to primary school have excellent results in both English and Czech. They are also successful in challenging entrance exams, which we consider to be a confirmation of the effectiveness of our approach.

  3. Structure

    Children usually join us around the age of 2 and we accompany them until they are 6 or 7 years old. At TETTY, we have three main classes with programs tailored to the children's learning levels.

  4. Gifted children

    At TETTY we have experience in working with gifted children and their families. The fact that we have a significantly higher proportion of gifted children compared to the general population only confirms this.

  5. Intrinsic motivation

    Instead of rewarding (with sweets, etc.), we encourage children to self-evaluate. Teachers evaluate children by describing what the child has done and how it has benefited him/herself or the team. We motivate children to participate in activities so that they understand what we plan to do and why, what they might enjoy about it and how the activity might benefit them. On the other hand, we avoid encouraging competition and comparing children with each other.

  6. Communication with parents

    In case of problems, it is important for us to communicate with parents and try to find a solution which is in the child's interest.

  7. Conflict resolution

    We always try to resolve the situation first by agreeing, negotiating and explaining what others feel and what the consequences are. We also explore the child's need for negative behaviour and, where possible, try to meet that need.

  8. Candy-free policy

    At Tetty, we consistently avoid rewarding children or giving them sweets. We ask you to do the same - don't bring sweets to the preschool.

What to watch out for?

First days in nursery

  1. Mirroring feelings

    Children often reflect the feelings of their parents. If you have concerns or feel sadness associated with your child starting kindergarten, it is likely that your child will mirror these feelings. It is therefore important to work on your own emotions first and foremost.

  2. Timing

    Unless there are compelling reasons for starting nursery immediately, it may be a good idea to wait until you and your child are ready. Do not disrupt attendance immediately after starting as this can be confusing for your child.

  3. Preparation

    Talk to your child about nursery before their first day. Show them pictures, read books about nursery together, and include them in the preparation so that they have a better idea of what to expect.

  4. Structure of the first days

    For the first days, a shorter stay in the morning is ideal, gradually lengthening according to the child's needs.

  5. Adaptation in TETTY

    At TETTY, adaptation is completely individual, responding to the needs of the particular family and child. Adaptation can last from a few days to several weeks.

  6. Rest

    New environment and activities can be challenging for a child, so they may be more tired than usual. Allow them additional rest if needed.

  7. Personal items

    We encourage children to bring their favourite toy or item. They can help children feel more at home in a new environment.

  8. Communication

    In the first few days we will send you individual photos via Twigsee or MMS to share how your child is doing.

  9. Leave quickly

    Faster handover of your child is often better for adaptation. We can facilitate whatever you need, but in our experience it works best if the child is handed over to the care of the nursery quickly.

  10. Older children

    Older children may be concerned about returning to preschool after the holidays. It is a good idea to communicate with them about their fears and remind them of food things that awaits them in preschool.
