Little Heroes Nursery | Prague 4

In a family environment full of Montessori aids and toys, we prepare little heroes for life in the big world. Our programme is bilingual, so children from the age of one, the period in which they are linguistically most receptive, can get to know a language that is different from their mother tongue.

Ing. Ivana Varbanovová the headmistress
I was completely taken by the Montessori approach, so I decided to leave my original profession and devote my time to children, for whom we are creating environment full of stimuli. We honour the individuality of our little heroes and with their guides always staying close to them, we let their personalities to form. We naturally encourage them to communicate, cooperate, and be independent. As a mom of two, I know how important it is.
Kateřina Haubová nanny
Working with children has always been a big part of my life. My mum works with children with special needs and my older brother is a tennis coach for children. From the age of 15, I used to go to sports camps with him and also helped him at summer city camps. I used to babysit for my friends and also worked as a private nanny while studying. After I finished high school, I studied special education. I am truly grateful that I can do a job that fulfills me and I can help children develop their individuality and uniqueness every day.
Anežka Svobodová nanny
During high school, I lived with the idea of going to medical school and being a doctor in a white coat. However, thanks to the birth of my nephew, I threw that idea away and decided that I wanted to do what I sincerely enjoyed in life and felt inside that it was right. The Montessori approach offers me all of this. I worked in a Montessori nursery in Brno, where I enjoyed my work immensely and wanted to stay in such an environment. Therefore, after moving to Prague, I was looking for a place that honours respectful education and develops unique personalities in a non-violent way, with love and understanding.
Romana Benešová nanny
I have been working with children for many years. My hobby is creative and artistic work, that's why I first decided to organize occasional art courses for children. After a few years, I took a nanny retraining course and started working with children intensively. I feel happy and safe in the company of young children, and I love to create the safe environment is for them as well. Children are a great inspiration for me and thanks to them I can see the world again through children's eyes and experience new adventures. Natural support, respect and understanding are the aspects that guide me in my work. I lead children to independence and responsibility, because just like us adults, children also want to keep their lives in their own hands, although for now with our natural support.
Svitlana Lavska housekeeper and nanny
Ever since I was a little girl I longed to become a kindergarten teacher. After completing my master's degree at the Pedagogical Institute, I started working with children, first as a cantor in a school and later in a kindergarten. When I arrived in the Czech Republic, I also wanted to work in the field, so I was very happy to welcome the opportunity to join the collective of the local nursery school, where I meet children from different countries and especially Montessori pedagogy, which I had only superficial experience with so far. I find my work fulfilling and I gain experience that enriches me, and I love to pass all this on to the young children for whom our nursery is a second home.
Mgr. Michaela Topinková supervisor montessori
I have always dreamed about being a teacher in the kindergarten and possibly open one kindergarten on my own. I can say my dreams come true and preschool pedagogy became my life mission. I worked as a nanny, tutor of interest groups, kindergarten teacher, kindergarten director and founder of my own kindergarten. During my university studies I encountered Maria Montessori pedagogy which completely won me over for its kindness and simplicity. I use its principles on daily bases to rise my son, work with parents, work with teacher´s teams and directors of kindergartens and children´s groups.
