For over sixty years our dedicated teachers and volunteers have been teaching children of Czech heritage in supplementary language programmes. MMI funds the school from its own donations and budget with no government support.
Currently the classes offered are engaging, lively and teach children the basics of communication in Czech, be it reading, writing, listening and speaking. Additionally, children learn about Czech culture, tradition and heritage; and have fun putting on performances and plays.
The Institute has been fortunate in obtaining the generous patronage of the Czech Foreign Ministry which supplies our school with the latest in children’s story books and educational material.
Classes are offered to children 5 to 12 years of age and run every Saturday (except for long weekends). The winter semester stars in mid-September and runs for 12 Saturdays. The spring semester starts in mid-January and runs for 20 Saturdays.
Classes start at 10 am and end at 12 pm. A nominal fee of $5 per child per class is charged with discounts for other children from the same family.
