What Does a Play Wisely® Lesson Look Like ?
Each Play Wisely lesson lasts 30 minutes and is divided into three parts. We start working with a special set of flash cards, then we do activities to improve child's fine and gross motor skills, and at the end of a lesson we work with the flash cards again. The structure of a lesson is always the same, but every week we focus on a different type of physical activities and work with different set of cards. Intensity and type of activities we adjusted to the child's age and abilities as well as their current mood :-)
We offer lessons in English or Slovak language individually, in pairs or in a group of three children. We recommend 1 - 2 lessons per week. In all Play Wisely® lessons the mom, dad or anyone close to the child is present to ensure we create a warm and safe environment.

Lessons with the youngest children are designed to develop early attention and recognition capabilities.

In a playful and fun way we help children to get an early sensorial skills.
