What makes Livingston different?
We support intrinsic motivation
We do not control the child´s thirst for knowledge.
We create the correct conditions for the thirst
to be quenched.
We develop children´s talents
Not by traditional comparison with others – but
by the feeling of being satisfied with oneself.
We take them as equal
Children are human beings just like
the teacher – who just happens to have
We prefer non-authoritarian regime
Because children learn much better
if not under pressure and threats.
We know English
And that´s why we start teaching it
from the first grade, using the unique
Jolly Phonics methodology among others.
We create an intimate atmosphere
Maximum of two new classes in one year.
No more than 18 pupils in each class.
We offer Czech
Individual lessons for children born to foreigners
based in the Czech Republic. Programme
carried out by a specialist Lenka Siváková.
„The school is not a place
where a child is afraid to make
a mistake in front of the teacher,
but where he feels safe when learning
about the world around him.“
