Special days


Apple Harvest


We visit the apple garden nearby at harvest time where we pick the ripe fruit together with the children.

After that we hold a harvest party.


Michael's day market


To revive a national tradition we hold a market at the end of September, where children can exchange their goods brought from home (fresh and shriveled fruits) in a playful way.


International day of animals


In accordance to our possibilities we pay a visit to the zoo or wildlife park on this day, thus inspiring children to get to know the world of animals from a close view.




Scaring, singing, collecting candy – that is how we walk around in the kindergarten in costumes (witch, ghost, etc.) After that, we hold a dance party.


Advent Preparation


Our Luca day's handcraft afternoon provides us the opportunity to involve the parents in our Christmas preparations. It bears a special significance for us.

We finish the year with a cheerful picnic.

We stick to national traditions on this day with decorating easter eggs, the boys sprinkling with water, the girls preparing with painted eggs. The bunny's hidden presents in the garden are playfully sought out. We try to cheer up the children with a living bunny if it is possible.

When a bunny visits us, we feed and pet him with pleasure!

About us

Our kindergarten was founded by Pege Zsóka in 1981, on the 12th district's Böszörményi út.

Shortly the space became limited due to expanding requirements, so we moved to Gellért hill for a while, before eventually occupying our recent location.
