What parents say about us


We have come to Tartu from Ukraine, Kiev for work when Dasha was 3 years of age. She only started fluently speaking her mother tongue. Of course, English was only an idea for some unclear future. We also left all our friends at home. And friendships for our girl was our concern No 2. That’s why we decided to join international group where all the children, even local, are in the same shoes – no one knows how to speak English properly.

Now Dasha can express herself in comprehensive sentences, she can describe all her needs and even discuss mama’s work 🙂 She is part of a team. She’s got her friends. With them she recently celebrated her 5-year anniversary!

I would really love to appreciate work of our teachers Kadri, Nora jr, Leila, Karmen, Nora sr and Gajatri. Within all this term my girl is WILLING to go to kindergarten every day! Because the atmosphere is friendly and creative, and when Dasha has arguments with mate she knows that fair “judge” will be there to sort it out. I think we are lucky to have Terake int. group for Dasha to get ready to school!

For us, TERAKE international nursery class has proven to be a great success.

First, it made our return from Scotland a breeze and allowed kids to further develop their English and make new friends. Second, putting together kids of different age is a brilliant idea – they act and behave as one big happy family. Third, their program based on international curriculum and adapted to suit local conditions.

And finally, all of this would not have happened if it wasn’t for the teachers and staff of TERAKE, they have really put much effort into making foreign kids feel at home. So would I recommend the group of Viljaterakesed? Yes, most definitely!

Our son Kristaps was very satisfied with your Day Care centre from the very first day. He goes to the kindergarden with a real pleasure, and gladly tells us what he’s been doing there during the day.

We also appreciate the encouragement to develop those interests that the child is most interested in, and at the same time showing also other possibilities. A great plus is also playing together of children of different age. It helps to the development in both ways – to the ones, who are younger to learn from older peers and the ones who are older to learn taking care of younger peers.

We are sure that Kristaps enjoys various kinds of activities and additional themes of each week. Undoubtedly, learning languages is a big plus. Kristaps has been attending the Day Care centre for 6 months, but already understands English and also speaks English. Additionally, he speaks also some words is Russian and Estonian (Kristaps’s mother tongue is Latvian). It will help him later when learning other languages.

We must stress that teachers are very friendly and genuinely interested in each child. It’s possible to see that they really do care, and children love them.  All in all, we are very satisfied with our choice of the Day Care Centre. Thank you for taking care of our son in such a lovely way!
