Originally founded by the US Embassy in 2001 to serve the diplomatic community, Green Tree Preschool has expanded its high quality programs to include the Prague community at large.
Green Tree opens a purpose-built facility to offer its preschool programs in September 2016. In addition, we are opening our Academy which will serve young families, expectant parents and infants/toddlers.
At Green Tree parents can find everything under one roof.
Enrollment for children from 2 to 6 years age,
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 6 to 1. Through our theme based curriculum children can become knights and princesses, community helpers, world travelers, archaeologists and much more.
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.
The daily schedule provides children with structure and continuity which helps them to be secure in their environment.

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.

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.

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!

Naši rodinu pojí s Green Tree Preschool relativně dlouhá historie. Náš starší syn Nicholas začal Green Tree navštěvovat v roce 2006, když mu bylo pouhých 18 měsíců a zůstal celkem 3 roky. Náš mladší syn Robert také nastoupil do Green Tree, když mu byly necelé dva roky. Dnes je mu 5 let a v tomto školním roce bude v Green Tree končit, protože od září 2016 nastoupí do větší školy. Obě naše děti byly v Green Tree velice šťastné. Náš starší syn, který momentálně chodí do 5 třídy základní školy, se i nyní po šesti letech rád v Green Tree zastavaví, třeba cestou ze školy. A dělá to celkem pravidelně. A nutno podotknout, že ho v Green Tree vždy rádi vidí. To co dělá Green Tree výjimečnou školou je dle naší zkušenosti kombinace velice přátelského až domáckého prostředí v kombinaci s profesionálním přístupem ke vzdělávání a rozvoji dětí prostřednictvím hry a zábavy. Green Tree Preschool se ale nezaměřuje pouze na vzdělávání a rozvoj dětí, ale co jsme vždy oceňovali, klade důraz také na budování přátelských vztahů mezi dětmi a budování jakési vzájemně se podporující komunity. Obě naše děti si v Green Tree Preschool našli velice dobré přátele a byli tam opravdu šťastné.

At Green Tree Academy we realize that learning takes place from the moment we are born. In our new facility we will offer programs for expectant parents, post natal exercise for parents and babies, seminars for young parents covering topics such as nutrition, parenting, health, first aid, etc.
We will also give parents an opportunity to choose from a variety of extension activities for our preschool children and those up to the age 8. These classes will include sport, music and art.
We believe The Green Tree Academy will become a center for early years education attracting parents and children from Prague 6 and beyond.
See our calendar for a complete list of our activities including dates, times and fees.
