Cherry Tree is an innovative early years center, for children aged one to six, located in the heart of Prague with a large private garden. Inspired by forest kindergarten education, we combine outdoor learning and play. Our goal is to give each child a well-rounded, meaningful start to their educational journey.
We encourage children to take part in caring for our beautiful garden so they 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.
