Slnečnice branch

Kindergarten for children from 2 to 6 years

Slnečnice - Kindergarten

Residence complex Slnečnice is situated on the outskirts of Petržalka, in a newly established area. Its intention is to serve parents from all over Petržalka and adjacent villages such as Jarovce, Rusovce, Rajka.

The facility is modernly furnished and equipped in the spirit of Montessori education. However, we try to combine the best from different directions. There is a pleasant forest next door and playgrounds within easy reach.

    Drawing from my personal experience, I've come to appreciate the significance of a respectful approach
    and an enriching environment in the education of children. Sadly, these aspects are sometimes undervalued
    by society. Consequently, we make it our mission to provide daily guidance to each child on their journey
    toward discovering inner equilibrium, self-assuredness, and a genuine enthusiasm for learning. Our
    ultimate goal is to empower every child to lead a fulfilling, joyful, and intellectually stimulating life. This, in
    essence, defines Bystrá škôlka.

    "Children may forget what you told them, or what you did, but they will never forget how you made them
    feel. “
    I love my job because it gives me the opportunity to work with children, and to see their happy faces
    whenever they learn something new or make a progress. I am grateful for this job because no one can give
    you so much love and such honest feedback as children can.

    I was born in the Philippines. Ever since I was a young girl, I knew I wanted to be a teacher.
    My own personal schooling experience plays a big role in my desire to teach because I had amazing teachers
    who supported me, advocated for me, and saw potential in my abilities.
    Ever since that moment, I've been committed to my career in education, with the desire to leave a
    lasting impression on my students and kindle the same enthusiasm in them that I once experienced
    during my own schooling.

    Education:
    Bachelor’s degree in Secondary Education, major in English.

    The greatest sign of success for a teacher...is to be able to say, "The children are now working as if I did not exist." Maria Montessori.

    I decided to become a kindergarten teacher because of my deep love for children and animals, as well as my passion for teaching, especially English language skills. Despite lacking formal teaching experience, my role as a dedicated mother has provided invaluable insights.

    As a mom, I've learned the importance of patience, empathy, and creating a nurturing environment for children's growth. 

    Teaching is a powerful way to influence the next generation, and I'm excited to nurture young minds and help them develop essential language skills, especially in English. My background as a mother and my passion for teaching are the foundation of my new role as a kindergarten teacher, where I'll create a supportive learning environment for these young learners !
