“THE CITY FOX takes Belgrade”

Children do not need an oasis in order to play. They want to explore and take an active part in their surroundings! Let’s discover the city together!

City foxes meet people, observing professionals as they go about their business. They discover urban animals in all of the city’s nooks and crannies. They imbue the city with verve and color. We speak in English throughout the day, do sports every day, visit the city’s parks, and once a week we go on an outing!

City Foxes on the road

  • We want to experience nature with our entire bodies—perception, color, movement, smell, and sound are all of great importance.
  • It is now that we are just getting to know what are to become our lifelong dreams.
  • Together we watch the seasons turn, we accompany the children as they make their discoveries, helping them make sense of the stories, songs, and rituals, all the while communicating in English!

Children explore the environment using all their senses. The world is open for them to see, hear, taste, smell, touch, and experience it. Where better than in the great outdoors to appropriately train, develop, and engage one’s senses? We venture into the urban outdoor every day. At the same time, we place a great deal of emphasis on a sense of community. Children should participate in the activities, be involved, and be allowed to hone their exploratory instincts.

As the name “City Foxes” suggests, we’re on the lookout for anything crawling, scampering, or sprouting in the city. In our immediate vicinity, there are numerous parks and infinite ways to familiarize ourselves with nature; however, we choose to do more than explore just our immediate environment, and once a week we organize outings where we visit other Belgrade neighborhoods as well.

Equipped with a magnifying glass, discovery box and bottle, we collect natural objects, filling our backpacks with pebbles, snail shells, and conifer cones. These natural materials serve both as unstructured play and craft materials. We want to guide children through the basic principles of design, while encouraging them to be creative and to experiment.

In harmony with nature

Several factors combine to comprise environmental awareness. The foundation is an awareness of our surroundings, and knowledge of animal and plant life, ecosystems, and challenges facing the environment. Children should learn how to connect with nature, appropriately for their age. Knowing about the environment engenders a pro-environmental attitude, which in turn ensures ecological behavior. When children are aware of the importance of a clean environment, they are much less likely to litter.

At “VRAPČIĆI”, children are encouraged to explore and arrive at answers about ecological processes, based on age-appropriate examples and information. We observe flora and fauna, we admire it, identifying it as needed, but we never damage or destroy it.

We always leave nature as we found it!

THERE’S MORE...

We have pre-eminent lecturers and coaches working with us, such as Konstantin Kostyukov, Oleg Kireyev and Igor Krstin.

Principal Dancer and Director of Ballet of the National Theater, choreographer, as well as Principal Dancer of the Ballet of the Shevchenko Theater in Kiev, Konstantin Kostyukov, works with children in our kindergarten, employing the methodology of renowned ballet pedagogue Agrippina Vaganova from St. Petersburg, thus conveying to them the classical dance form system.

Oleg Kireyev is a world-famous saxophonist and the first Russian musician to combine ethnic jazz motifs with folk instruments. He has released 15 jazz albums, and his “Mandala” album has been nominated for a Grammy Award for best contemporary jazz album. This passionate world-renowned artist will hold music workshops and introduce the children to all instruments, so that, upon graduating from “Vrapčići”, they will know all the instruments comprising an orchestra. We also offer individual piano and singing lessons.

We have teamed up with the “Žandarmerija” Karate Club, one of the most successful karate clubs in Serbia. Training sessions in our kindergarten are held by the Director of the KC “Žandarmerija” Igor Krstin, as well as by members of the national team and students of the Faculty of Sport and Physical Education, who have extensive experience working with children of pre-school and elementary-school age.

Enrollment in our kindergarten and stay is open all year. We would be happy to discuss with you which group and program is the most suitable for your child. Call us or send us an email, and we will respond immediately.

“Vrapčići” director and co-founder is Anna Poletaeva, pedagogy specialist and history teacher committed to development in the field of education, with a specialization in preschool education. She has gained invaluable work experience in reputable elementary and high schools, enriched further through founding and developing multilingual kindergartens and extended stays.

Extended stay Vrapčići is located in Belgrade city center, in a beautiful house in a quiet part of Vračar, right next to Neimarski Park.

HOW DO WE CARE FOR YOUR CHILD’S HEALTH AND THEIR DIET?

Our motto is “a healthy mind in a healthy body”. Our goal is to ensure preventive healthcare for the children, to foster in children a culture of health and a motivation to lead a healthy lifestyle. That is why our teachers do calisthenics with the children every morning, and why the children go for a walk every day. This is a supplement to our sports program.

Special attention is given to the children’s healthy diet regime, because, together with physical activity, it forms the foundation for both their health and their academic progress. The diet in our kindergarten is based on healthy and tasty products obtained from certified producers. We put a lot of care into the food we offer to children.

Our chef, with whom we have been cooperating for many years, creates our menus under the supervision of a licensed nutritionist. The daily menu is adapted to the children‘s age and the caloric value of the meal. Our emphasis is on fruits and vegetables, in addition to fish.

We use low-fat foods, and place a lot of importance on our children developing an understanding of the food they eat, and of why it is important to eat a fresh carrot every now and then.

The complete diet in the extended stay is divided into 4 meals, and it includes a healthy breakfast and snack (porridge and fruit), soups, cooked meals and salads. Fried and artificial meals have been excluded from the diet.

The menu is made every 10 days, and parents can get acquainted with the contents of the menu on a daily basis.
