About Us

Our Philosophy

At Green Tree children are encouraged to “Learn and Grow” in an atmosphere which is stimulating and nurturing. We believe that learning takes place both indoors and out and we have created an environment which enables children to be active explorers through purposeful play activities. Our curriculum is English, our teachers are native English speakers and our child to teacher ratio 7 to 1. Through our theme based curriculum children can become knights and princesses, community helpers, world travelers, archaeologists and much more.

Our Curriculum

The new curriculum at Green Tree is based on the British model, the Early Years Foundation Stage with 4 guiding principles:

Furthermore, there are seven areas of learning and development that shape the educational programs at Green Tree Academy. All areas of learning are important and inter-connected however, three areas are particularly crucial for igniting children’s curiosity and enthusiasm for learning and for building their capacity to learn, to form relationships and thrive.

When Preschool becomes a part of your Family. Wonderful, inspiring, enhancing environment for kids with the added value of genuine family feeling. Our son attended Green Tree for 3 years and he absolutely loved it. Over the years Green Tree has become a part of our Family both for him and for us.

Great kindergarten, small groups, huge space and garden. The director is a heartfelt educator and the curriculum is based on child's interests. Also the food is really good with options between different diets. Great variety of food. September 2020

Fantastic school with extraordinarily competent and motivated educators, professional leadership and a wonderful atmosphere. June 2019


Green Tree Preschool is a place where my son gets a perfect package of many things – love, care, a lot of exiting activities and last but not least professional staff composed from native speakers only. When we were looking for a preschool for our son, we wanted him to learn English above all. He started with not a single word in English and now, attending the school for about a year and 3 months, he does not feel a difference in being in the English environment – the school and the Czech one – home. He understands English perfectly and is making remarkable progress with his speaking, learning new English words every day! To me it is a miracle. And on top of that, we were so lucky to find a preschool, where children's development, personality and happiness are treated equally. Thank you Green Tree!

My daughter has been attending Green Tree Preschool for about a year and I would just like to express our greatest grattitude for the staff, for being so kind, understanding and nurturing towards her.The teachers are very professional and their efforts and dedication to teaching students is very appreciable.We feel ourselves very lucky to find such a school with a great team. My daughter enjoys going to school each time and in fact her English has improved remarkably within a year. We are very satisfied with Green Tree and its positive environment and I believe the teachers are truly what make the school stand out.

Our family has a long history with Green Tree School. Our older son Nicholas joined Green Tree in 2006 when he was 18 months old and stayed there for three years in total. Our younger son Robert also joined when he was about 2 years old and is still going there. After 3 years in Green Tree Robert will graduate to a bigger school at the end of this school year. Both of our children were very happy in Green Tree and the older one still likes to go back and visit sometimes even though he is 11 years old now. That is how special the school was to him. What makes Green Tree so special is the combination of a very homey and nrturing environment in combination with professional educational structure through fun and play. The school has always encouraged not only education and learning but also friendship and sense of community. Our children have both acquired very good friends in the school and loved going there.
