Principal's Welcome

     My name is Denisa Kasana. I completed my high school studies in Bratislava and graduated from the High School of Pedagogy. Later, I continued with my studies and pursued a bachelors and masters degree at the Faculty of Education at Comenius University in Bratislava. 

      Upon graduating from high school I taught two years in a preschool in Bratislava. After, I went abroad to USA where I had the opportunity to see the preschool educational system in Texas. Seeing new methods, procedures and the individual approach to children's personalities had a great impact on me. When I came back to Europe I searched for a method that would allow my son Martin to study the same way as in USA. However, after the revolution the options were limited. 

       I decided to visit the QSI International School of Bratislava and found it very interesting. Unfortunately, at that time there was no preschool for children aged 2 - 4. I talked to the management and proposed to establish a preschool; this is where my career in QSI began. Throughout my career I had the opportunity to meet and work with children from all around the world. At the early beginning there were only a few children and so the pedagogues not only taught the area they specialized in, but they were able to dedicate their time to activities such as swimming, P.E., art, etc. I also established and organized the QSI summer schools and summer camps; I am happy the tradition continues to this day. I also focused on extracurricular activities, mostly art and ceramics, and organized Saturday workshops with aesthetic objectives. 

       My son, Martin, graduated from the University of Minnesota Carlson School of Management in December of 2011. Currently, Martin works at Microsoft in Prague, after 11 years spent at Microsoft in Austin, Texas. My younger son, Andrejko, and my daughter, Dianka, study at QSI International School of Bratislava. I am very proud of the progress all three of my children make not only in terms of the English language but overall in all areas of their lives.

Testimonials

Včerajšie rodičko bolo krásne aj podnetné. Mala som možnosť mať rozhovory, ktoré by sa inak asi ani nemohli stať. Ďakujem, že ste to spolu s kolegyňami usporiadali. S Deniskou sme dohodli, že mi pomôže zorientovať sa v základných školách, pre mňa pomoc na nezaplatenie. Veľmi si vážim, že tu ste aj pre nás rodičov, ďakujem, že ste.

Chcem poďakovať za čas, ktorý ste mi venovali na rodičku. Mrzí ma, že už nezvýšil čas povedať Vám ako skvele robíte svoju prácu, tak aspoň takto :-) Najlepším dôkazom je, že Šimík sa do škôlky a na Vás vždy veľmi teší a máte zásluhu na jeho pokrokoch.  Pôsobíte veľmi systematicky a pedantne a vidno, že práca Vás baví.. Máte pekný prístup k detičkám, vždy ste usmiata a ochotná zodpovedať akúkoľvek otázku. Keď prídeme do škôlky, je tam vďaka Vám, Mary a pani Drahuške taká pohoda, že s manželom sme skonštatovali, že kľudne by sme sa tam zostali hrať :-) 

Ešte raz ďakujeme.

Our family has been very fortunate to be part of Benjamin for the last five years. When we got here so many years ago, we would never have realized how connected we would be to such a warm community of people.

And now, it is time to say good bye……. :(

Five years is a long period of time, but it seems to have come to an end too quickly.

We believe the biggest compliment a teacher can get is when a child goes home and says: ‘Mom, Dad, I had a great day at school’. Our children did that every day returning home from Benjamin.

Today, we would like to say 1000 times thank you for those amazing 5 years.

Thank you for every day’s smiling and offering a hug when our kids walked in the door.

Thank you for creating an safe environment full of love for learning, appreciation for growing, and room for making mistakes along the way.

Thank you for making a great difference. Because you care so much about our children, you have directed them to trust themselves in all that they do and to become all that they dream of, if they work hard and play fair.

Thank you for teaching them what is the value of real friendship.

Thank you for all you passion, care, but most of all, for your love!

Our children have been blessed by being part of Benjamin. It has given them not only education but also values which shall remain with them all their life.

As the years fly by, many things will change… but one thing will remain constant and it is the value of a great teacher. Thank you for being one.

Sincerely,

Michaela & Michal Barabas

Ďakujeme za milé koncoročné hodnotenie:) Pokrok, ktorý urobila Barborka za rok, čo je u Vás, vnímame aj my. Je to v prvom rade Vašou dôkladnou prácou a starostlivosťou, za čo sme Vám nesmierne vďační. Sme presvedčení, že sme pre ňu vybrali tú najlepšiu školku, napokon, hovorí to každému aj ona sama. Nielenže sa u Vás veľa naučila a v mnohých veciach aj "dospela", ale je u Vás šťastná, a tak robí štastnými aj nás. Veľká vďaka za Vašu precíznu prácu, vážime si, s akým nasadením sa o naše deti staráte.

Thank you so much for your great commitment to the kids, special thanks for our little Simonka, one has to be proud parent reading the report like the one you had sent for our little one. Even though, we can see, it's not just about a paper-report, but she really loves English and we DO see her constant improvement without any doubt of this investment into our child. 

Moreover, her progress is not only in English, but also socially, mentally and emotionally, thanks to you Adka and Dianka.

Thank you very much NOT ONLY for the whole preschool Senec facility, its educational system, quality, environment BUT ALSO for having Dianka and Andrejka! Our daughter Eliska really favors them and keeps mentioning them when at home, alongside with her favorite doll Cookim : ) THANK YOU again for everything you do and we are really happy we “found” you! : )

We would like to give you our sincere thank you and recommendation to confirm how great of an experience, joy, and care our Son Stanko has received from the Benjamin Tnravska Team.  Especially we would like to recognize the work of his teacher Ms Danka Schnirtczova. She has a love filled, patient, and educational approach to our son as well as to her other students. It is reassuring to know that our most loved son is taken care of so well during the whool week. Great work Danka!! Another big thank you goes out to Mrs. Drahusa!

Thank you,

Above all I am happy to hear that Hejneho method found its way to Benjamin. I was already "high" when I heard about Montessori math principles in our Kindergarten. But Hejneho method is a dream to come true. I plan to teach my kids myself by the H-mat principles when they are a bit older - and you were faster than me .o).

 

I am really happy that Math is taking a big part of kids days in preschool.

 

Thank you for everything :o)

Every morning I get the question: "Mom, is there preschool today?" - "Yes" (a wave of joy) - "Will we have show-and-tell?" - When I answer "Yes" Lenka becomes so happy she screams out loud: "YAAAAAY"

I would like to say and send you big THANK YOU after our first month in Benjamin. It was one of our best decisions in last couple of months, if not years.:-) We can see the progress every day, they are learning lot of things. But not only that, I can see the happiness in their eyes. When we are leaving from Benjamin and passing the building with the car, Matko is yelling: "Mojaaaa skolkaaaa":-) And Saska started to prepare her own presents for her teachers. She said: "I love them, I want to give them something." Our mornings and preparation to the preschool is very smooth and without any problems. It is really about perfect people in Bejamin and their approach. You are doing great job and I can imagine that it is not always easy. Simply, we are happy parents with happy kids in Benjamin. Once more, thanks a lot to all people in Trnavska and Myslenicka.

Best regards,

Family Danis

Our Linda chose Benjamin all by her self. In July 2009 we signed her up for one week of summer school at Benjamin. After one week she said: "This is my new English preschool and it is where I want to go everyday :)
