Hospitāļu Street 5A
Laumiņas Rezidence at Hospitāļu Street is our branch in the city centre, with three groups for children aged 1-5 years. The kindergarten is situated in two buildings, one of which is newly renovated. The third group was opened in September 2019. Although we are located in the Riga city centre, the premises of the groups are spacious, light and cosy. Two enclosed playgrounds are available for children — a larger one where they can engage in active play and explore the world, and a smaller one. Both of these playgrounds are colourful, well-equipped, suitable for various activities, as well as there is a sandbox for building big and small sandcastles.
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 lovely, 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, English language, as well as have sessions with an audio speech therapist.
