Strongly individualized care of children and teaching of English with native speakers

The project of English Monty Preschool was first launched in September 2005 and met with very positive feedback. Its founders, Alexandra and Petr Vidlák, created the first English preschool in Ostrava and the entire region. The interest over the coming months and years showed that this completely new type of education for children from 3 to 6 years had been wanted in Ostrava for a long time, but Monty was the first one able to fully satisfy this demand.

The main principles of Monty from the very beginning have been individualization of care and teaching by English native speakers. Only through these main pillars is it possible to achieve results that both parents and founders of the Monty preschool expect. These principles have been gradually transferred to other parts of the Monty education portfolio, such as: the nursery for children from 1 year, which was founded in 2007; Monty Elementary School, which started in September 2008; and the High School which launched in September 2020.


Even in English courses, it appears that individual lessons or small group work is most effective. We can see these results as our students pass the prestigious Cambridge exams without problems. Children attending Monty preschool and school achieve practical bilingualism, which is very important  for their future competitiveness in the labour market. Monty is also able to provide care for very specific foreign clients, at all educational levels.

In Ostrava there are many foreign companies whose employees and their families come and require education and care for their children in English.


Monty School provides education for children from the 1st to the 9th grades of compulsory schooling and for 15 to 19 year-old students of High School. The school is registered in the Register of Schools and the Register of School Legal Entities of Ministry of Education and is an official part of the Czech school education system with all obligations. Monty Elementary School focuses on the linguistic preparation of students and teaching CLIL method in the context of so-called integrated thematic instruction. The school is unique in the fact that in each class there are a maximum of 16 children and two teachers, one English native speaker and one Czech. In connection with the search for new financial sources the school took advantage of the implementation of additional activities also in extracurricular activities, language learning and teaching.

Monty aims to be a modern, progressive education center of the highest level, which serves kids and students from 1 to 19 years old. All the steps of the company have been moving towards this goal.
