The GENIUS MIND diagnostic system, which we use in our kindergartens, enables a comprehensive diagnosis of the child's overall development. In this way, we can accurately determine the child's talents, strengths and needs, as well as detect developmental abnormalities in a timely manner.
Diagnosis is processed by a psychologist and a special pedagogue.
Diagnosis is recommended for children from 4 years of age.
The school also offers diagnostics to children from outside.

Child psychodiagnostics is a professional method used mainly in counseling and clinical psychology, which aims to know the child's personality - according to the chosen method can examine his personality traits, temperament, intellectual potential, specific skills and possible developmental disorders. The results of psychodiagnostic examinations are used in the field of early care, pedagogy, pediatrics and psychiatry.
In counseling practice, we can use the psychodiagnostics of preschool children for several reasons - early diagnosis can capture not only possible disorders and delays in development, but also determine the child's potential, level of cognitive abilities and distribution of different types of intelligence and main areas of talent. From an early age, we can obtain information about the strengths and weaknesses of the child, we can further develop the strengths and try to compensate for the weak ones.
The neuroplasticity of the brain reaches the best level in young children, and therefore finding out the strengths and weaknesses of the child can be crucial, because there is a huge space for development and possible correction.
In addition to life itself, the greatest gift that parents can give to their children is to develop and saturate their mental potential, recognize it in time and not let it go out ... Thanks to this, children will be able to grow into self-realized and competent people with high self-esteem and respect for other beings. who will be actively involved in building a better world.

Why is the diagnosis of a child beneficial for parents?
Diagnosis is an investment in the future of children. Thanks to diagnosis, parents get to know the child's personality and find out the area of talent, its strengths and weaknesses, and based on them they can choose the direction of future education and support measures so that the child is happy and successful in adult life.
Why is diagnosis important for children?
So that we adults can find out what children cannot tell us on their own. Thanks to diagnostics, we know their natural potential and talents. Subsequently, we can set up an environment for them so that children can devote themselves to what they were born for and thus achieve that they will be fulfilled and self-realized.
How is the diagnostic examination performed?
The diagnostic examination takes place in the premises of GENIUS Kindergarten. The diagnosis lasts a total of 2 hours without the presence of parents. Subsequently, the results are processed and then a meeting with parents takes place, where the results are presented and explained together with recommendations.
