Kindergarten & Pre School
A-Z International Centre for Children is an English language Nursery, Preschool and Kindergarten for children from 18 months to 6 years of age. The Centre believes that a young child’s life should be full of fun, happiness and enjoyable interactions with peers and caring adults. Their program creates many opportunities for each child to progress, by providing professional teachers who offer a wide variety of experiences based on the children’s interests and levels of development. A-Z is located in the heart of Budapest’s leafy 12th district and conveniently accessed by car or public transportation. There is a children's library, gymnasium and even a 'Parent's Place' set aside for the adults. A-Z offers a large garden and playground area allowing children to really enjoy some extensive outdoor explorations.
The aims of their programme are to provide a wide range of educational activities in a relaxed, secure atmosphere; to promote social and personal skills within the group situation; to foster self confidence and self awareness in this transition between the family unit and school, and to encourage language development as each child explores and orders his environment. While English speaking children will be able to move about in a familiar situation, the Hungarians will be absorbing, rather than learning a second language. Since Hungarian culture is very much present in the daily activities, the Hungarian children are prepared for moving up to primary school education in Hungary. At the same time, the offspring of an English speaking family might profit from mixing with this culture by learning some simple Hungarian rhymes and games.
Happy Kids International Kindergarten aims to synthesize the best practices from a range of national educational systems, balanced by its own unique multicultural experience to create a day care and learning environment of excellence for children in the age range 2–7 years.
