The Hedgehog group is comprised of 4- and 5-year-olds. In the upper level of preschool, we emphasize oral communication skills and expanding vocabulary. Our course of study follows the annual holidays and introduces students to the flora and fauna characteristic of Hungary. While engaged in folk games and handicrafts, children learn to follow instructions involving several steps. Children learn the Hungarian alphabet through games with letters of the alphabet, so we can say this group also plays a role in preparing children for school.
