We usually accept children over 3 years of age, Depending on social skills and previous experience with similar institutions we can accept a younger child. Each case is discussed individually after the child's short attendance to our school. Children have to be toilet trained. 

Children are often tearful when their Mummy leaves them – tears are part of nursery life. It is a big step for children and parents. However, tears usually dry up within five minutes of their parent's departure. But only if it is a real departure. It does not help if parents linger around the hall, in front of the building and the playground because if children happen to see them the tears will start again and it will only make the parting longer and harder. It is important not slip out while the child is otherwise occupied – saying goodbye and reassuring him/her that you will be back soon to collect him/her is important. The preschool teachers are gentle and flexible with the children and parents entering the kindergarten and since each child is different there are no strict rules regarding the way and speed of transition. The most important thing for us is that to ensure efficiency of education the cooperation between parents and teachers is smooth. 


In Orchidea Kindergarten the maximum number of children depends on the size of the room. There are at least 2 teachers in each group, a Hungarian-speaking one and an English speaking one.

How do I know how my child performs in the kindergarten?

Each child has a folder in which we collect his/her materials, e.g. worksheets or other activity sheets. We keep it till the end of the year but parents can look at their child’s progress any time. These folders can be taken home at the end of the educational year as a reminder of their personal achievements or as a souvenir from preschool years.

We are happy when parents work with us and discuss what was learnt in school. Our goal is to promote individual development of children in all areas of education with an emphasis on the smooth and seamless transition of the child to the next grade.


 We aim to bring cultural programmes into our kindergarten at least once a month such as concerts and puppet programs. Other programmes include field trips or outings. On Children's Day we take a long day trip.
We place great emphasis on offering various possibilities of sports for the children. Sport activities are supervised by qualified trainers keeping children's age appropriacy in mind.
