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 native British English 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 Primary School, which started in September 2008; and the High School ready for new students from 2020.
