  • Description


    We are a Czech family with 6 children and we take care of an old mill. We have build a eco-center for children education, we run day-to-day activity center (preschool) for children up to 6 years old and also home-school for older children. We teach Montessori method. We are non-profit organization.

    Also, we have hostel. Children with teachers come to us for stays called "school in the nature". We have a large classroom with a mirror wall for exercise or dance. Furthermore, a small classroom equipped with projection, Montessori playroom, art workshop. Some programs or evening discussions can be held in the dining room.

    We will provide rooms with beds for helpers and free food. You can also sleep in tent or in tee-pee in summer, if you wish. We would like our volunteers to be like a part of our family, spending as much time as possible together, playing and talking with kids and with us too. We need to practice English. We also speak Spanish, Russian, Czech and Slovak.

    All activities we run are part of NGO, that means we invest profit back to NGO activities such as children education or nature projects.
