Why a career as an early childhood educator?

“Children are our greatest treasure” is not just a nice phrase, it’s what we believe in at Sofizo Educational Centre.

Only the best is good enough for them. That’s why at Sofizo, we’ll give you the knowledge you need to ensure that the children in your care get the very best.

“Happy children living between reality and fantasy and through the endless blue rush for unfulfilled magic.” – Tone Pavček

If you see yourself as a part of this reality and fantasy, if you love children, if you are creative and critical, active and imaginative, and of course responsible, then a career as a teacher or early childhood educator is the right choice for you.

That’s why the Early Childhood Education programme is for those of you who are ready to take responsibility for the care and protection of children, who love children, love playing with them and would like to be actively involved with young children.

Course book

The preschool education program (vocational course) includes only those contents that cover the professional knowledge that preschool educators need to successfully work with the youngest. How much content or areas you will need to master in order to successfully complete the course depends on your initial interview with us. We will discuss your interests, wishes and expectations and prepare a so-called personal education plan. If you already have certain knowledge and skills that the educational program or the vocational course of preschool education covers, it is not necessary for you to attend the entire process, nor do you have to fulfill all the obligations, as we will recognize some of them – based on the evidence you submit.

On this basis, we then work together to design a learning path that is tailored to you:

how and to what extent the courses are delivered according to the programme,

the timetabling of school commitments

As each student receives individual attention, it is possible to adapt their personal education plan.
