Our space

The space is equipped following the most modern standards and it meets the strictest safety, hygiene and technical requirements. The furniture is completely adjusted to the children.

The inside space comprising the area of 500 square meters with the fenced yard of additional 300 square meters at which “Discover Me Academy” is situated was purposefully built to be a kindergarten and, as such, is exquisitely adapted to suit the needs of children. The location is very accessible — it can be accessed directly from the city’s main transit street from both directions as well as directly from Radnička Street from the direction of Grbavica/Kovačići. What serves as a great advantage is the availability of many parking spots in front of the building.

Each of our classrooms covers an area of circa 60 square meters and possesses a direct way out into the yard, which makes organizing the children to go out to the yard a lot easier. All of the classrooms are directly linked with children’s toilets, each of which have separate cabins for girls and boys and a direct access to the yard as well, which means that children, after spending their time on fresh air, go inside through the toilets, change their shoes, clean/change their clothes and wash their hands, so the rooms in which children spend most of their time remains impeccable health and hygiene wise.

The space has abundant storage areas. The communication part of the space consists of a large cloakroom with separate storage areas and a waiting room with a toilet for parents. It is important to highlight that the place also has its own kitchen with a dining room for children.
