Indoor Learning Facilities

Our bright and flexible indoor spaces have been uniquely designed to support the dynamic learning of our students.  Our spaces are well-equipped with a range of materials ensuring a wholesome and effective learning environment.


Our classrooms have been set up to provide a welcoming, warm environment where lessons are taught through individual and group instructions, interactive and hands-on materials, and collective discussions. All our classrooms are well lit by natural light and are facing nature and greenery, not to mention the addition of many indoor plants to clean the air and refresh the space. 

We strive to embody self-directed learning and interactive teaching throughout the school day, refraining from standard practices such as frontal and un-differentiated teaching. We have created well-equipped and attractive learning environments using beautiful and enticing hands-on materials as well as specific Montessori teaching tools with which our students, using all their senses, can be fully immersed in individual and collaborative learning. 


Computers, Tablets, and a SmartBoard are available in the classrooms for students to use for their research and projects. They are distributed across the ages and meant to be used as an alternative resource along with books and our other educational materials.


Students use our cozy library at the school regularly. They can enjoy the pleasant atmosphere, read and borrow books, and use the facility for project research. Library visits are an integral part of literacy and are designed into the timetable.

We attach great importance to reading and take many steps to nurture students' love of books and develop the habit of becoming enthusiastic readers early on.  We carefully choose and fill our library with meaningful and life-changing books. Book fairs, book swaps, celebrating book characters, and mystery readers are among the various ways we encourage a love for reading. 

Specialised Spaces

Science Laboratory

As modern science places a much greater emphasis on practical activity and experimentation, the STEM lessons will be taught in our newly built science lab.

Music Room

Our newly created music room is a well-equipped space for our students to develop their musical interests. Whether it is learning about music theory, performing for their peers, or practicing with the school orchestra, the melodies of the music room are a much-loved addition to the ambiance of the school.

Pottery Atelier 

The soothing qualities of clay are a benefit our students are able to take advantage of with the addition of our in-house pottery atelier. Developing clay-working techniques, expanding their diverse creativities, and improving motor skills and sensory development are all at their fingertips!

Additional Spaces

We have a number of additional spaces we use regularly as part of our expanded facilities for both school day and extra-curricular activities. These include a ballet studio and a large indoor gym, both adjacent to our school building.

Dining Hall

Our dining hall is a vibrant communal eating space where our students are able to socialise with their peers and teachers, expand their palette by experiencing culturally rich cuisines, and enjoy nutritious meals. 

To learn more about our kitchen and our approach towards sustainable and healthy cuisine have a look at Healthy Eating.

What People Say

Do you still remember the excited eyes and hunger for new knowledge and skills that are so typical of kindergarteners? When searching for a school, retaining the love of learning was our top criteria. That’s why we came to Brilliant Stars. And the choice was good - kids asking “when can I start some math?” on the first day of school, kids going deeper on some school topic and bringing their findings back to others, kids writing short books, kids looking forward to discussing moral choices and current affairs… by now, our kids are 10 years old. They still love learning.
I whole-heartedly recommend Brilliant Stars to any parents searching for a warm, safe school environment that nurtures the whole child. My daughter attended preschool and year one for three years and leaves the school confident and prepared for her next adventure. Brilliant Stars' dedicated staff supported her natural talents and personality and showed her how much she can accomplish. I especially valued Brilliant Stars' emphasis on virtue education and the effort they make to instill their students with a sense of responsibility-- for themselves, for their friends and loved ones, and for the world around them. Brilliant Stars' curriculum and philosophy unlocks academic excellence without neglecting equally important social skills and commitment to community. We had experience with other, more expensive private schools in Bratislava but Brilliant Stars outclasses them easily---- it is what we will miss most about leaving Slovakia.
Thank you for the excellent cooperation in the last 5 years. Having had the chance to attend Brilliant Stars was the best start to education of our children we could have imagined. Hearing children chatter fluently in English at the end of Kindergarten, was a great achievement. Not being a bilingual family, we considered that as one of the main objectives and it was met. Your enthusiastic and motivated team whom our children and us will keep the best memories of. Always smiling, ready to help and discuss, proactively report on status. Last but not least – healthy cuisine, clean environment, library, well-groomed premises, educational tools and playground… Brilliant Stars should be referred to as a role model for other educational institutions!
I would like to thank you for all the efforts you took and make this difficult time as smooth as it is possible. Everything was so well-organised and once again I must say that I am very proud to my child in this school 🧡
I have two children at Brilliant Stars' and I am delighted with the care and approach of all of the staff towards childcare and education in the early years. Both my children are flourishing under their academic, social and moral guidance. My older child has loved the use of Jolly Phonics (a UK approach to teaching literacy) as a learning tool and enjoys his numeracy, science, art and music lessons. The kindergarten also offers a wide variety of extra activites and has a lending library. Finally, and one of the key reasons why I chose this kindergarten, is that the head teacher is an inspiration to everyone involved with the kindergarten - very proactive, accommodating, hands-on and very focused on the children and what is best for them. I can highly recommend this kindergarten and given the high standard they have set can only expect their new Stupava branch to be just as good.
I think Brilliant start gives children 'active learning', and teachers know how to support children's Curiosity. I can see that my children are having good time. Because my children can't stop speaking what they have done today with big smile when I pick them up after school.
Thank you and your entire team for the tremendous work. I have been impressed from the very beginning by the flexibility of your staff and the speed with which you managed to convert the entire curriculum online.
