About Us

About

Welcome to Cherry Tree Early Years Centre, a place to learn and grow with nature!

Inspired by forest kindergarten education, Cherry Tree combines outdoor learning and play to give each child a well-rounded, meaningful start to their educational journey. Children aged 1-6 years old are welcomed into our international, English speaking environment.

At Cherry Tree, we believe in the importance of children spending time in nature and the benefits that our outdoor curriculum provides. Through exploration, and observation children become more empathetic while self-motivating and directing their own learning.

The name of our center comes from the beautiful Cherry Tree which stands tall in our garden.

 

Our vision

At Cherry Tree, we believe that nature provides endless opportunities for a child’s healthy physical and mental development. Experience has shown us that an outdoor environment improves children’s motivation, contributes to increased physical activity, helps develop their early social life skills, and promotes overall well-being.

We encourage children to take part in taking care of our beautiful garden so each child can contribute to its well-being and benefit from its produce. Through play, children obtain practical knowledge about ecology and sustainability while witnessing the miracles of nature in front of their own eyes. At Cherry Tree children enjoy a unique opportunity to organically understand the cycle of life while being an active and creative part of it.

Our story


We are Prague based educators with different life paths. Together, we bring you a unique nature-based early education concept inspired by forest education. We believe that the best days end in dirty clothes and we spend time outdoors, rain or shine! At Cherry Tree, we follow the Framework Education Program for Preschools issued by the Czech Ministry of Education and provide our children with a fully-fledged preschool curriculum.
