Secondary Pedagogical School

Welcome on the webpage of Secondary Pedagogical School which is a part of the First German Municipal Secondary School, Elementary School and Kindergarten, CSO.

The study program of Pre-school and Out-of-school Pedagogy was opened in 2011. The First German Municipal Secondary School, Elementary School and Kindergarten, CSO, is located in Mendel Square 3/4, Brno. It was founded in compliance with valid legal regulations and on the basis of the Ministry of Education’s bylaw in 1992.

Education at this private school results in state school-leaving exam with the same validity as education acquired at schools founded by state, church or city.

Since September 1, 2011, new Secondary Pedagogical School has been open in Mendel Square 3/4 offering the study program in Pre-school and Out-of-school pedagogy. In 2015/2016 we will open one class with the maximum number of 26 students

Students are taught to educate children and young people and to organize their hobby activities. Students learn to participate in developing the children’s talents, mainly in the area of rational, emotional, physical and social abilities. The future kindergarten teachers learn to understand and communicate with children. To work with children, they need to acquire knowledge and skills not only in the area of pedagogy, psychology and biology, but they also need to know how to develop children in arts, acting, music or physical education. Apart from this, our future graduates learn why it is important to take care of the children’s safety and how to do it; they adopt the rules of healthy lifestyle as well as legal regulations related to school education.

The acquired theoretical knowledge is applied in pedagogical process right in the School Complex. Under the supervision of experienced teachers, our student-teachers can practice their skills in Fantazie Kindergarten and in the after-school club at the English Elementary School. They will practice their skills  in preparing projects aimed at educating children, i.e. planning and preparing activities for children and organizing and managing a class.
