Mateřská škola‘s Director
Helena works as a preschool teacher since 1975. In 1981-185 she worked as a Deputy to the Director in a Chlupova preschool facitily in Prague 5. In 1985 she was appointed the headmaster of the Sluníčko pod střechou pre-school facility in Prague 13 and has since worked on this position.
Under her leadership Sluníčko pod střechou has built an excellent reputation of a school offering high-quality preschool education.
In 1995 Helena established a close cooperation with Pedagogical Faculty of Charles University in Prague which resulted in two important things: at first many students, future pre-school teachers, do their practical training in Sluníčko pod střechou every year. Secondly she has had the opportunity to get involved in many interesting projects and researches (e.g. enviromental project and exchange programme with a Hamburg pre-school facility; long-time cooperation with an NGO suppporting children-foreigners in education and their teachers).
Helena had also promoted and put in practise inclusive education long before the Czech Republic passed a law introducing inclusive education to schools.
Since 2017 she has been lecturing workshops for pre-school teachers on the topic of education of two-year-old children in pre-school facilities.
She holds a Master´s degree in Pre-school Pedagogy (Special Education) from Charles University, Prague.
Helena speaks Czech and Russian.
