Support Sokol through a tax-deductible donation Donate Now join us
In addition to our regular Friday school program and gymnastics for preschool and kindergarten kids, we will start a new program this year. This project is intended for children from 3 to 6 years of age. It was developed by the Sokol in the Czech Republic and every year more groups and schools have been joining.
All tasks in the project will help to develop and practice physical skills, play games with balls, learn about an environment, use Czech and Slovak language, and enjoy other non-traditional activities. Falcon Pepik will follow all their activities.
The program is based on the Sokol exercise and many years of practice of trainers for preschoolers and parents and children. Currently, the methodological material that teachers receive within the project is one of the best-elaborated curriculum materials for physical education, which we have in the country and which supports the framework educational program of preschool education.
The project is divided into three categories according to difficulty to suit the growth and development of preschool children. Specifically, these are the following age groups: the youngest category 3-4 years, the middle category 4-5 years, and the oldest children aged 5 to 6 years. Each age category has a certain number of assigned tasks and their complexity increases according to age. Once the children have learned the skill and managed to complete the assigned task, they stick a sticker in their workbook and can observe the achievements. Children are accompanied by various animals through individual tasks, which open the door to the world for them.

In addition to regular weekly meetings on Mondays, we will organize family trips suitable for this age group.
