Slovakia will be welcoming a new enterprise this summer after three colleagues decided to open up their own bilingual Kindergarten.
The children’s learning center will be opened by Petra Naik, Shane Hughes and Colm Hughes. Petra is a native speaker of English having lived in Canada for over 20 years after leaving her home country of Slovakia and Shane and Colm are brothers from Ireland.
The three friends have been teaching English in Stupava at a primary school and now, due to their love of teaching plus a business idea, they are opening their own Kindergarten that focuses on teaching through fun and play.
They hope to provide a place where children can develop their English skills early on thus giving them a big helping hand when they go forward with learning the language in the future.
After spending two years teaching in a Slovak bilingual school the trio have a valuable understanding of the importance of immersion in language at an early age and how it can lay very strong foundations for going forward in to a bilingual learning environment after kindergarten.
In a collaborative enterprise that comes from the heart the kindergarten aims to focus not just on English but on learning life skills through the medium of English. Petra, Shane and Colm want to focus on social and emotional skills, physical development and cognitive abilities as well as providing language exposure from native speakers.
They have been spending the spring time in Stupava preparing the premises for opening and have been doing a great chunk of the hands-on work themselves.
The kindergarten is set to open in August with full information detailed on the website below.
The website is available in both Slovak and English language.
