Starting January 20, In Baze, an organization devoted to integrating foreigners into Czech culture, launched its intercultural clubs for children from 5 to 18 years old. The group says its “aim is to create a safe space for your kids, where they can practise Czech without any pressure and make new friends.” Registration is required to participate though the clubs themselves are free. Classes take place at various locations around Prague see their website for further details.
Two Hour School
A new educational program for English-speaking children in Prague, Two Hour School, is designed for children from international families who attend Czech schools. International primary school teachers lead classes in English literacy and learning twice a week. Because students have already spent a day in school, the lessons are focused on energising and fun experiences through which kids can learn while fully engaged. See more here.
Aside from offering Czech and English classes for littles, the newly opened Embera center (an “education and leisure-time center for children from 2 to 10 years of age”) also organizes Friday and Saturday events, such as pajama parties, cooking, birthday parties, theater, educational workshops, summer and winter camps and more.
