Classes in English with professional native speaker teachers to develop all skills of your little child.
Every child speaks English in our club!
After just a few classes your child will understand basic classroom language and will be able to answer questions. In a few months you will see them speaking English to themselves while playing.
All our teachers are native speakers of English certified to teach English. We monitor the quality of teaching and conduct regular teacher trainings.
Children learn through play. Therefore we use toys, props, sports equipment, materials for arts and crafts in games and activities to process our learning. Play is the most important way of making new knowledge relevant for a child.
We are dedicated to Love and Care for each child. We teach children to respect others, love themselves, share, help each other and have fun together. We believe that this is the basis of a good education.
Teddy Bear Club classes are aimed at native speakers of English as well as children who have never heard English before. They develop memory, logic, motor skills, coordination, creativity, attention, listening and speaking skills which are important for everyone.
Each class has opportunities for each child to explore, use their creativity and have fun. We use new vocabulary in creative ways, we do arts and crafts. Even our food never looks ordinary – we make it extraordinary and learn doing this!
ENGLISH CLASSES FOR BABIES 0-2 YEARS OLD AND THEIR FAMILY
English classes for the little ones start from the age of 6 months old. An adult with the baby can join classes based on physical and emotional contact between the adult and the baby. Musical massage and exercises, a puppet show, sensory games, gross motor skills activities, songs, rhymes and fingerplays in English – all of these allow your child to start speaking English as a native language. Adults that accompany the child during the class repeat the words after the teacher, answer questions, sing songs and encourage their child to do the same.
OUR ENGLISH CLASSES FOR 0-2 YO INCLUDE
Every class we listen to a story illustrated with a puppet show. We must listen carefully and help the characters. This is the way we learn our vocabulary, emotions, communication and live in the world of MAGIC CASTLE.
Sensory Play & Fine Motor Skills
All toddlers’ favourites are sensory games – a chance to touch, smell, feel something new, play with it and explore it with all your senses.
We meet Mr Sun, Moon, Clouds and Rain. We learn about the hot and the cold, ice and water. This is the way for little children to learn about the world around them and get their first concepts of science.
Sport & Massage
In our classes for the little ones we always use song and rhymes together with movement. A child associates massage or exercises with a particular song or rhyme which make English their native language – the language of their childhood.
In our English club your child will celebrate their first holidays – Christmas or Fall Fest with presents, costumes, music and dance. We are also happy to celebrate your child’s birthday in a company of friends!
Songs and finger plays are essential for children’s learning and development of a sense of rhythm, musical hearing and language. Music is what most children enjoy the most.
ENGLISH CLASSES FOR 3-6 YEAR OLDS
English classes for children 3-6 years old are conducted in small groups. Parents can accompany the child if needed in the first 1-2 classes, after this the child joins the classes independently. From the first class, MAGIC CASTLE staff will take care of your child and make sure that they enjoy every minute of the class. Regular change of activity, exciting things to do, music, creativity and play – all of these guarantee that your child will be involved in the class. The class is conducted in English by professional native speaker teachers. In class every child is encouraged to repeat, answer questions and respond to the teacher, that is why all children speak English after a few months of participation. Our goal is for each child to be able to feel comfortable and communicate in any English-speaking situation.

Drama & Holidays
We start every class with a story about the theme of the day. We think about the story, express our opinions and learn new words and phrases.
At MAGIC CASTLE we love having fun! Your child will have a real Christmas party with Santa, presents and a Christmas tree. We are also happy to celebrate birthdays and other fun holidays!
We do crafts in every class in Teddy Bear Club. Our craft will reflect the theme of the day and use a variety of materials from clothes pegs and beads to feathers or shells.
We change activity in Teddy Bear Club every 10-15 minute. After some sit down activity – like a craft or story time, children will have a chance to run around and play active games while still using the new words and phrases.
At MAGIC CASTLE we love cooking. That is why before we can eat our snack of, say, carrots and cheese we must turn it into a picture or shape to reflect the theme of the day.
Every Teddy Bear Club class has a music class with. We can sing and move to our favourite songs and the movement, the dance will help us understand and remember the words better.
Reading & Writing
From the age of 5yo children start learning phonics – reading and writing in English. We use a British reading system to make sure children learn to read easily.
