Kindergarten and Preschool

Introduction

Music House Kindergarten is an accredited kindergarten for families based in the peaceful surroundings of the Buda Hills, and it is located in a green and quiet environment. We offer a music-based curriculum with small groups furnished with age-appropriate games and developmental equipment, plus a dedicated music room and gymnasium. We also have a book corner and a well-equipped, private playground. Our Hungarian and foreign teachers work in close co-operation with parents to develop confident and independent children. Music House provides nutritious meals four times a day, prepared daily by our dedicated kitchen staff.

It is important for us to have good communication and information exchange between the kindergarten’s management, teachers and parents / families. In addition, it is possible to organise meetings during the year, if need be, with teachers and management.

The kindergarten is open every weekday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Activities

In addition to our music-based curriculum, Music House offers a strong emphasis on the development of all key individual skills including gross motor skills, fine motor skills, speech, creativity, imagination, and socialisation during free play. We also offer a varied programme, as we have unique and exciting activities based on regularly changing topics.

As the children are immersed in the English language all day, every day (including with native English speakers), they develop their skills in a natural and fun way, comparable to the acquisition of a mother tongue. We actively encourage the children to play and to learn language in a fun and enriching way. For this intensive in-depth approach, the presence of native English-speaking kindergarten teachers is essential, who consistently use their mother tongue in the daily life of the kindergarten including with the following subjects:

School Preparation

The make-up of our kindergarten reflects our international background and we have both Hungarian and foreign students. We therefore consider it key to prepare the children for both the British and American school system as well as the Hungarian education system (be it only Hungarian or bilingual Hungarian-English) during the school preparation years. This allows our families great flexibility when it comes to choosing their next school environment once their child has graduated from Music House.

The methodology with which we work and with which we achieve our goal includes not only the preparatory classes for the British and American school system (writing, reading, mathematics, logical development etc.) but also the preparatory classes for the Hungarian education system (this is optional).

By the end of their preschool years, our goal is for the children to be able to follow any school programme, including bilingual Hungarian-English systems. Our pupils have successfully gone on to study at various institutions including British/American international schools around the world, private bilingual English-Hungarian institutions, and state English-Hungarian institutions. Overall, our pupils leave us with impeccable and confident language skills.

Community life & special events

In addition to the above regular programmes during the year, we value our family atmosphere as we are a relatively small institution with small groups and many siblings. We also value the direct relationships between teachers and families as well as our co-operation with international institutions and schools. At Music House, we also hold regular private events aimed at our attending families.

The following programmes are examples of special events involving our families. These include events which our students directly take part in as a way to enrich their learning experience and grow their self-confidence.

  • Christmas Show,
  • Parents’ Day,
  • Picnic with families,
  • End-of-year show with graduation programmes

I am truly happy and grateful to have found Music House! From my first introduction visit I was sure that this is the best place for my son to attend nursery. My son’s adaptation was smooth thanks to Edina and the staff, who are creating a calm, safe and loving environment for all the children! He loves to go every day there and is walking in with joyful jumping! I highly recommend Music house to anyone.

We have made an extensive research for nurseries and kindergartens in Budapest. However after we toured the Music House, we made the decision it is the right place for our son. Our son has settled down very smoothly and quickly thanks to the welcoming and worm environment. The teachers are excellent, and we already have seen positive progress in our son’s development after one month. The following key areas are really worth highlighting - excellent management, effective and transparent communication, safety and super cleanness of the premises. We definitely recommend!

This is a great nursery, warm, loving and welcoming. Feels like a second home. Kids and staff are happy, the facilities are really bright and colourful and lot of care goes into keeping the kids happy, entertained while developing their skills. Staff take individual and patient care with all kids. My child showed progress in many areas almost immediately and settled in almost immediately. We love that music and art is a core part of everything the kids do in their classes as tools to develop and enhance their abilities. I can warmly recommend this nursery/kindergarten to anyone.

I fell in love with Music House from the moment I walked in the door for a tour. It is calm, clean and such a happy place to be. My son loves going to school everyday and he is happy when I pick him up in the afternoon. He is learning, meeting new friends from all over the world and trying new Hungarian food! I love the small class sizes and I know my son is loved and well taken care of. I 100% recommend Music House to parents who want a school that feels like a family. 🙂

I can't speak highly enough of this fantastic nursery. Our children have serious dietary issues and after one disastrous experience at another nursery, we were so apprehensive. But Edina and Attila and all their staff has left us feeling so reassured and calm to know our children are being taken care of. The extra step they take to ensure that everything is safe for them is comparable to us 🙂 They love them like their own children. My daughter literally runs to the door every morning excited to go to school and the smile on her face when she comes home tells it all.

For those who want an intimate and caring environment for your children’s early learning experience, then, I would highly recommend The Music House. Our four year old twins started pre-Kindergarten at The Music House in Mid September. Moving country can be hard on little ones for the first while but Edina, Attila and their professional team have been so helpful and accommodating that the transition has been made very easy. The kids look forward to going to school each morning and I hear them singing new songs from school as we drive along in the car. Each day varies which keeps everything more interesting and enjoyable. Overall, a wonderful pre-school!

An island of calmness and joy! I fell in love with Music House at our first visit and get the same feeling going there every day. The love and care for the children is outstanding, as well as the range of possibilities for development. I cannot compare to any other place I have seen. Starting nursery is a beautiful, but tough challenge for every parent - I can tell, I feel so safe and content, but most importantly my Son enjoys his time at Music House so much! Thanks so much for all the loving and professional teachers! ❤️
