In September, Brumlovka will welcome a new tenant in the Olivka building, where the popular private Czech-English preschool GENIUS Kindergarten will be opening. This will be the third branch of the accredited GENIUS kindergartens with a capacity for 30 children, which also operates its own elementary school in Prague – Krč near Brumlovka. The kindergarten will offer the unique GENIUS Mind educational program, which takes place in a bilingual format in the Czech and English languages. The aim of the program is to develop children with respect to their personality, strengths and weaknesses, and in particular in accordance with their needs. Enrolment for the 2022/2023 school year for children from the age of two is already underway. The kindergarten has found its place in the newly completed multifunctional Olivka building by Brumlovka Park, which will expand the services for children in the locality. In addition to the kindergarten, there will also be a unique model railway set in a Swiss landscape. The owner and manager of the Olivka Building is the Passerinvest Concern.
“Our goal is to strengthen the children’s self-confidence, creativity, playfulness and to lead them to mutual tolerance. A natural environment for games and self-development is important for children, and therefore we take the choice of new spaces very seriously. Brumlovka was the ideal choice for opening the third branch of the kindergarten not only in terms of the modern and pleasant spaces of Olivka, but also in terms of the maintained green Brumlovka Park, where the preschool is located. In the adjacent park we can also use a very nice playground with lots of game elements, which the children will definitely appreciate,” said Michal Zuza, the Director of GENIUS Kindergarten.
The Czech-English GENIUS Kindergarten was founded in 2010 with a clear intention – to create stable facilities with an individualistic approach to each child according to his talents and uniqueness. The name GENIUS was chosen to link with the philosophy of the nursery, which is: “Children are born as brilliant creative beings with a certain potential. It is necessary to uncover this potential and to develop it further,” The leadership of the kindergarten has, together with experts in the field, developed a unique educational concept GENIUS MIND, which takes place in a bilingual format in the Czech and English languages with the involvement of native speakers. This educational method is the cornerstone of the GENIUS Kindergarten schools. First, the potential of the child is identified on the basis of a diagnostic system, and the kindergarten continues to develop it naturally through the program using, for example, NTC learning and Mindfulness methods. The school also offers varied leisure activities in the form of afternoon clubs and children can look forward to hours of swimming, skating, ceramics, music and language lessons and much more.

It will occupy the entire second floor in Olivka and it will also have its own outdoor garden. On the ground floor of the building, fans of trains both young and old can look forward to a unique Swiss railway model with 35 train sets and 500 meters of tracks,” adds Lenka Preslová, Head of the Sales Department of Passerinvest.
The Olivka building is located with the Oliva residential building by Brumlovka Park in the residential neighbourhood of Prague – Michle between Hodonínská, Michelská and Pod Dálnicí streets. The building offers modern spaces in a locality with full civic amenities and wonderful transportation accessibility, as well as an abundance of peace and privacy thanks to the parks and generous surrounding greenery. The studio A69 – architekti is behind this architectural jewel in the shape of the fruit of the olive tree.
