We cooperate with several primary schools in Brno. We visit these schools with preschoolers and their parents always in the autumn. Children have an opportunity to try out the school's program and parents may ask for everything they are interested in.

We work according to following ten commandments:

  1. We enable the child to work at a faster pace
  2. Less practising, more moving forward
  3. More creative tasks
  4. The child is given enough time to ask and discuss
  5. We do not push the children to do usual routine acts (e.g. sleeping after lunch, etc.)
  6. Parents are given a written record on the progress of the child
  7. The child works both in a team and individually
  8. The child participates in all the activities plus could have an extra individual plan
  9. Working on projects both short and long term
  10. We care advice and recommendations of experts and cooperating institutions


To support and develop the gifted child is not unnecessary, extra or elitist. It's a necessity.
If the child is not given space to develop according to his/her intellect, it could happen following:

  • the high intellect and extra skill capabilities, paradoxically, could create a negative force that soon could begin to act against any learning and education process
  • the child gets bored and stops being motivated
  • the child feels shy, becomes introvert, rejects friends
  • the child hides his/her skills to be better accepted by friends
  • the child may become aggressive towards teachers, parents, other kids
  • the child may be constantly unhappy, protesting against everything
  • the child has constant questions, high demands on everybody, wants to change the rules
  • It can be seen as a very troubled child by adults
  • the child may prefer a contact with older children
  • teachers could evaluate the child as a problematic one, not seeing his/her talent
