How is technology incorporated into the curriculum?

In children, in preparation for the digital future, we develop the ability to algorithmize (using a programming tool for children Scratch and ScratchJr), logical thinking, working with common applications (drawing programs, video editors, presentation tools, team collaboration tools), understanding the Internet and AI, and the functioning of computers. We guide children to think critically about the use of technology and safe behavior in the online world. We include in teaching new methodologies for ICT teaching (e.g. AI for children), we work with an elaborate curriculum to teach programming to children using block tools and robots. For higher grades, we extend the curriculum to work with 3D printing and 3D environments and virtual reality.

Do children have the opportunity to use the services of a psychologist/special educator?

Yes, of course! Our school is a great supporter of the overall development of each pupil, which is why we are happy to work with our team of experts. A psychologist, a special education teacher and a speech therapist visit our school regularly to provide support and care to children. In this way, pupils can use specialist services and get individual help if needed. We are proud of this collaboration, which reinforces our efforts to create an environment where every pupil can reach their full potential.

Do you organize schools in nature?

Yes, we are very happy that our school regularly organizes outdoor schools, which include not only traditional lessons, but also fun learning activities, including swimming. This unique experience not only strengthens the learning process, but also supports the overall development of our pupils through activities that link education and the natural environment. We are very happy for the opportunity to provide our students with this extraordinary educational experience within the inspiring environment of the school in nature.

How can parents be involved in the educational process?

We consider parental involvement to be a key element of a successful educational process. We greatly appreciate the active involvement of parents in various aspects of our school community.

Parents participate in school events such as Demodays, workshops and lectures. Their participation in trilateral meetings, where they actively contribute and provide feedback, is of invaluable value.

Furthermore, we are grateful that parents show engagement by regularly reading the information we share regarding school activities and their children's progress. Their active participation enriches our school community, and we greatly appreciate their cooperation in creating a positive and supportive learning environment.

Do you organize joint events for the whole family?

Yes, we are proud to regularly host joint events for the whole family! Every month you can look forward to our favourite 'Demodays', which offer an inspiring insight into the results of our pupils' work. In addition, we organize interactive workshops for parents with children, lectures, dating barbecues and a cementing game for children to round off the school year at the same time. We look forward to shared moments with our expanding family! 🌟

How does the school communicate with parents about their child's progress?

In addition to regular report cards in the form of verbal assessments twice a year, we offer parents additional opportunities to monitor their children's progress. We organize tripartite and consultation weeks twice a year, while parents can continuously monitor their children's results every month through the school information system Edookit. Demodays then allow us to present the results of the children's work each month. Whether it's meeting in person, email communication or any other means of contact, we are here for parents at any time to connect with us and discuss anything they need. 🙂

What does a regular school day look like?

Mornings in our school can be started as early as 7:30, when the doors open for the morning party. Shortly afterwards, at 8:15, we begin the day with a morning circle, before we dive into intensive classes. It consists of two ninety-minute blocks, separated by a break and a snack.

After the morning effort, the children rest during a lunch break, followed by the last block of classes in the afternoon. After the end of classes, you can take advantage of the afternoon party or take part in your favorite classes. The school remains open until 5pm to provide space for more children's activities and greater flexibility for parents. 🙂 This is how we strive to create an environment for pupils where learning is interwoven with joy and opportunities for relaxation and interests.

How many teachers are in the classroom during class?

The team works in collaboration with a Czech educator or an English native speaker and an assistant teacher. Our teams have support from a child psychologist, a special educator, educational methodologists and a speech therapist. We also work with external experts to develop competencies and training disciplines related to the real world.

What is the number of children in the class?

We have a set maximum capacity of 24 children in the classroom, although the current number is still slightly lower for now. By doing this, we ensure that each child has enough space and attention for optimal education.

Do kids get homework?

In our school, we do not place an obligation on pupils in the form of traditional homework. Instead, at school, we create space for motivating and thematically open house elaborations that encourage pupils to explore their own interests. This activity can take place in a home environment together with parents or in collaboration with classmates, we like to support teamwork.

For those who are interested, we prepare Voluntary Worksheets, which are offered once a week. Their elaboration is entirely voluntary and serves to support those who are interested in delving deeper into the subject. In this way, we promote the individual interests and motivation of our pupils.

What does teaching English look like?

In Flow's English program, we combine innovative project-based teaching with Cambridge accredited courses, emphasizing a hands-on approach to language with an emphasis on authentic conversation instead of monotonous grammar. We currently have two native English speakers in Flow, one is from the UK and the other is from the US, which opens the door to different accents and dialects for our students.

Technology is essential in our school and plays a key role in English lessons as well. Using tablets, computers and modern applications, we not only provide our students with the opportunity to integrate into the digital world, but at the same time create an engaging learning environment that encourages their active participation and engagement.

My child doesn't speak English. Is that a problem?

Ignorance of English is not a problem. Our school is open to these children and welcomes everyone with an individual approach. 🙂
