Apūzes Street 34A
The Apuzes Street branch of the Laumiņas Rezidence is located in new spacious, light premises, in a closed territory aside from the street and traffic.
We have five well-designed groups for children aged 1-5 years, broad playgrounds and each group has their own little “garden” to take care of and later enjoy the harvested goods. Together we have created an exciting path of sensations, as well as an outdoor play kitchen and a large wall blackboard so that children could explore the diversity of the world with greater interest.
Our daily life is fun, happy, musical and full of surprises because every day we learn something new. In the morning there are classes hosted by lovely, sweet sports and music teachers who help not only to prepare for festivities but also to exercise both indoors and outdoors. The daily rhythm is unhurried, corresponding to the children’s development level, we work pursuant to the new competence approach.
We have loving, kind and professional educators who take care of the daily activities and teaching of children. Our educators are always growing and developing, improving themselves by attending various courses. We also have the best educator assistants (nannies).
Children have options to additionally attend classes in ceramics, dancing, judo, English language, as well as have sessions with an audio speech therapist.
