Ephraim sings, plays guitar and also works as an actor in films and commercials. He has three sons of his own and has been told he has a special way with children. “I believe that the one way to educate children is by being a good example,” he says. “English can be taught easily through lessons, games, activities and conversation. What is not so easy is to see children as equals, equals in the sense that they have a very open and unclouded way of seeing the world, without judgements. If we, as instructors and care-givers give them an open ear and our full attention and show them respect, we find this respect is readily returned and that they are much more willing to accept our guidance.

OUR LITTLE HELPERS
Sometimes we are visited by animals like trained dogs and so on. Of course, children allergic to animals do not come into contact with them.
Each semester, there are two American trainees from CIEE program of Charles University at our nursery improving English of our children through playing games and other activities.
Our son stayed 3 years in the school. 3 years of happiness, freedom and visible personal and scholastic development.We can only recommend Indigo to make your child self confident, happy and ready to start his life strong and secure.
The teachers are amazing, caring, kind, and treat all the kids with respect. The director of the school is great, she's fully involved in the everyday activities, and is very kind and understanding.
We are very happy that our two daughters of different ages attended Indigo Kids. They both really learned to speak Czech and English. School preparation is also of excellent quality.
The best thing about Indigo are its teachers, who really love their job, have extensive experience and are best professionals to prepare the children for their next steps.
Here, children learn English quite naturally, which is taught to them by teachers - native speakers. We travel a lot and after a year and a half in kindergarten we communicate in English without fear and without problems, it is completely normal for my daughter.
I am very happy for the international environment, English, hours with a dog, a swimming course, a large garden and good food. I wish I could go to the same kindergarten.
Thanks to the regular development that takes place in the kindergarten,our son is perfectly prepared for elementary school and the first year he will probably be bored there with how much he can already do 🙂
I chose this kindergarten mainly because of the bilingual environment-- the amazing location in the heart of Vyšehrad and the beautiful historic building with a large garden was a big bonus.
