Welcome to the MAGIC WORLD
International Kindergarten Zagreb
Why Magic world Kindergarten?
Magic world, or in Croatian Čarobni svijet, was founded in 2015.
Our English program is verified and approved by the Croatian Ministry
The curriculum starts with the child’s needs and interests. A pleasant, family atmosphere makes every child feel safe, inspired, and empowered.
The approach that we use is learning through play and the holistic development of every child. Our qualified teachers have experience in Early Childhood Education and teaching English as a second language.
Our groups and programs
Children are divided into two groups: Caterpillars (1-3) and Butterflies (3-6+). Caterpillars transform into colorful Butterflies and move to the upper floor when they turn three. Our groups are composed of children from different countries, cultures, religions, and races. Therefore, our kindergarten nurtures diversity and multiculturalism from an early age.
The primary language is English, which children learn the best through everyday use. Non-English-speaking children can learn English in a few months by understanding it first, then speaking it. Authentic pronunciation and phonetics exposure are essential for speaking the language correctly.
Extra curricular activities
This program’s goals and content are a fundamental part of the standard ten-hour kindergarten program.
The most natural way for children to learn English is through play and situational learning.
Additionally, the program incorporates rhymes, stories, language plays, rule-based games, puppets, and pretend play.
The program aims to promote healthy growth and development of children, improve their health and optimize their anthropological characteristics.
All basic motor skills are classified into four groups/units:
- Mastering space (walking, running, rolling and crawling)
- Overcoming obstacles (climbing and jumping)
- Overcoming resistance (suppression, pulling, lifting and carrying)
- Manipulating with objects (rolling, throwing, catching, and shooting)
From planting and digging to building and comparing sizes, children are eager to participate in STEM activities from an early age.
STEM education, which consists of the initials of the words Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics, is an educational approach that integrates all these subjects.
Critical thinking, logical analysis, inquiry and project-based learning are the keystones of STEM education. It boosts the curiosity of the children, making the learning process fun, relevant, and everlasting.
The Program is for children whose age is determined by the Law on Education in Primary School. The tasks of the preschool program are:
- Development of independence
- Development of communication skills
- Development of curiosity and creative attitude toward the world
- Acquisition of motor skills
- Development of visual and musical communication
- Introduction to elementary mathematical concepts
Our primary concern is the education and welfare of your child.
The Kindergarten area consists of 180 m2 of indoor space and 1345 m2 of outdoor space. The interior space is made up of two floors and has the same layout, featuring a playroom, classroom, hall, dressing room, and bathroom. We often take children to a nearby forest, where they play there and explore nature.
The playrooms and classrooms are designed, equipped, and adjusted to meet the children’s modern needs, interests, and age. Science, pretend play, building, art and music, pre-reading, and math are some of the activity centers where children learn through play.
Small groups in the kindergarten provide closer relationships and a pleasant and relaxed atmosphere.
