Amazing place for children
Bambíno has become a second home for both our children. There are plenty of similar facilities in Prague, therefore it is not necessary to emphasize a beautiful environment, wonderful approach of staff towards children, quality programme etc. Clear and understandable evaluation of Bambíno by our children is only one… usually they don’t want to go home and apart from some cases, they are happy to go “to work” in the morning. And our evaluation as parents, that both have very non-regular working hours? We can ALWAYS negotiate anything in Bambíno, nothing is a problem that couldn´t be solved and Bambíno´s flexibility and helpfulness (same as the patience with us, crazy parents) is still surprising to me in some moments. These are from the view of us – parents, often invaluable above-standard bonus, which make Bambíno so extraordinary. We made some stops in similar facilities on the way to Bambíno but I can tell that Bambíno is our last one.
We have gone through the enrolment to Elementary schools with our daughter recently. We thought, until the last moment, that a postponement of the school attendance would be suitable for her, even after the consultations with all participated (kindergarten director, psychologist, speech therapist etc.). The greater was the surprise that our daughter prepared. In the elementary school which we belong to as for area we live in, which, I can say, is definitely not a bad school, they were looking at me with a great suspicion, when I told them about the idea. I can recollect one note of the schools’ deputy precisely and so will afford to quote her: “…by the way, I do not remember that we would had a child with such a good pen-holding and great motor skills at the enrolment lately…”.
So we decided to go for an enrolment at our preferred school where the enrolment to the first grade is a kind of a real “entrance exams”. I took it as an opportunity to find out what it would be like next year. From 140 registered children they were enrolling only 50 and our daughter is among them. This is probably not a surprise looking at the fact that she has attended Bambíno´s highly erudite and excellently managed pre-pre-school and then pre-school “education”. I have to admit absolutely honestly, that Bambíno has a significant involvement on her preparedness and her success.
Finally I have to tell that from the very start in Bambíno, my expectations and priorities from Bambíno towards children have been changing according to my children´s age, from the nursery to the kindergarten age, and now also the pre-school age. Bambíno and people in Bambíno understand it the same and the expectations have been fulfilled with an above-standard quality.
