Wider Community Engagement

Our conviction that each person has been created to carry forward an ever-advancing civilization, finds expression in focusing our program on assisting students to find ways to improve their surrounding environments. This extends beyond the four walls of a school. By engaging the students from an early age in social action, we cultivate their leadership skills and capacity and desire to help others while being active agents of change in the world. Our students and parents take part in various projects, conferences, and NGO events helping them to apply their theoretical knowledge into informed practice.

Participation in Community & Service

As our service to the community, we do various activities, such as:

  • Taking care of the surroundings of our school by planting flowers, bushes, and trees, and keeping the area clean.  
  • Participating in charity projects to help people in need. 
  • Supporting and taking part in events focusing on the education of important topics, such as the environment and diversity.
  • Starting dialogues with companies on their environmental action plans.

We work closely with institutions and individuals around the world to engage in the newest research and bridge research with practice. Our partnerships include close consultations with professors and researchers at the University of Cambridge and a lecturer at the Institute of Education (UCL). We also cooperate with other schools around the world such as Townshend International (CZ) and The School of the Nations (Macau). We take part in Erasmus projects where we are able to visit other institutions across Europe to explore educational themes. Our most recent research project was on the topic of inclusion and inclusive practices in the classroom and outdoors. 

We make every effort to engage with local governments and organisations in order to support the learning practices. Currently, we are collaborating with the Mayor of Bratislava on a number of projects aimed at educating for sustainability and the local district in which we reside on a number of educational and environmental matters. 

Over the years, Brilliant Stars has become a space for innovative ideas and raising students who strive to contribute to society. We are thrilled that our progressive school is able to be part of the transformation of learning in Slovakia and although we all still have a lot to learn, we open our doors and are always pleased to act as inspiration and a model for other institutions.

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.
