Preschools for English-Speaking Families in Prague
A guide to some of Prague's expat-friendly kindergartens
There's lot to consider when choosing a preschool for your little one, especially if you live in a foreign country.
According to the US Department of Education, preschool plays a large role in later academic success.
Children in high-quality preschools have longer attention spans, stronger social abilities, and better language and math skills well into their elementary school careers.
In fact, 20 or 30 years after they've put down their wooden blocks and stepped away from the sand table, they're still reaping the benefits. They're more likely to graduate from university, more likely to hold well-paid jobs, even more likely to own their own apartment.
To help you with this difficult decision, Prague.TV has compiled a list of top preschools around town. We hope it makes selecting the right place for your child that bit easier.
