Since 2008, Duhovka has been educating children from toddlers at an age of 1.5 years, to graduates from our high school who are on the threshold of adulthood. Duhovka is based on a bilingual Czech-English environment and the Montessori educational method.
The people who work for Duhovka are united by the desire to give students the best of themselves - to be role models for them and to be inspired by them at the same time. They are people who enjoy working with children and who are conscientious about their work.

We founded Duhovka in 2008 originally as a bilingual Montessori preschool in Prague 6 for our children. We started the school with eight children and two teachers. Gradually, however, it turned out that many people longed for alternative education and they brought their children to us. An elementary school and a multi-year grammar school were added to the preschool. Finally, we also established a Montessori teacher training institute, which operates in Prague, Florida and Norway. At present, there are more than 500 children, their parents and many employees in Duhovka. It consists of the people who form the Duhovka community together.

„I really enjoy that Duhovka is full of enthusiastic people who love and understand children. The Montessori method is amazing because at the end of the day you do not see bored and unmotivated children but curious beings who are not afraid to ask questions and are able to think about things. The sparkling eyes of the children I meet at school remind me of this when at times I have a harder day.“
„Duhovka is great because management and colleagues support you. If you do not know how to deal with something, you can ask. When you feel like trying to do something differently, there is always a willing "ear" to listen to the idea. I feel like I'm not alone in this.“
„I like that in my class, I teach together with a teacher from the US. There are two of us in the classroom and we inspire each other. Each of us have our own style of teaching and communicating with children. It's great that my colleague is also a qualified teacher with long experience. We teach in our native language and naturally complement each other, because some children are closer to Czech and others to English. In addition, my English has significantly improved during my time in Duhovka.“
„I am satisfied in Duhovka and I enjoy going to work. It has a lot to do with my inner feeling of doing meaningful work (which is not Duhovka-specific), but also with the environment, colleagues, Montessori culture (which is very Duhovka-specific).“
„I'm happy in Duhovka. What we create together for Duhovka children, students, their parents and for ourselves - employees, is an environment full of support and understanding, where everybody strives to do their best. This makes working in Duhovka challenging but at the same time motivating for me. With such great colleagues, it can be done.“
