We envision a society where the children are free
- to know and serve God
- to play
- to get the best education in order to create as adults a better society for our grandchildren.


Our mission is to establish, run and make accessible Christian nursery schools for many children, in order
- to know and serve God,
- and through their impact to regenarate our society.

Principii de educație

We are convinced that the children who grow up in a peaceful, cheerful, loving and open atmosphere, have more chance to become a composed, happy, well-balanced, understanding, open minded, helpful, active and creative pupil, teenager and later on adult. The safe, friendly, play-oriented, understanding environment is of paramount importance for the children, where the kindergarten teacher pays her whole attention to the children, loves, takes care, teaches and educates them. For us each child is a unique, unrepeatable and separate individual, who doesn't have to be cracked by a certain pedagogical method, but he or she needs to be loved, to be understood, to be guided and supervised, in order to develop according to his or her own developmental timing. The resourceful love and ingenious play helps the child the best to develop its own talents and aptitudes.

Principiile noastre

• Wisdom asked and granted from God, Christ-like love and serving
• To recognize the uniqueness of the child and to develop his/her abilities in a responsible way
• To ensure freedom to the child, adopting rules that help the groundwork of the moral attributes and his/her socialization through the common activities and experiences
• The learning process is built on the child's activity
• Close collaboration with the family, and if need, help and care.



The main educational tasks

• To develop a healthy lifestyle
• To ensure emotional nurture and socialization
• To implement intellectual development and training
• To look after the child, and to meet his/her somatic needs and demand of movement
• To help the formation of harmonious and aligned motion
• To facilitate the development of the child's bodily abilities
• To safeguard and train the child's health
• To shape the practice of a healthy lifestyle, personal hygiene, and maintaining a good health
• To secure a safe and healthy environment which is necessary for the development and progress of the child
• To provide special care, prevention and correction during the somatic training with the help of specialists in the field if needed.


With the help of God, after 1989 the lives of Romanian people and of the Hungarian minority took a favourable turn. It consists of much trouble to build a new society with people of the old era, therefore we elaborated a new strategy. The hole society needed a change of generation and of mentality. The Israelites were delivered by God from the Egyptian captivity, and they travelled during 40 years in wilderness. During this time the old generation died out and a new generation, who knew no slavery, entered the Promised Land. Jesus says: “And no one puts new wine into old wineskins and be spilled, and the wineskins be ruined. But new wine must be put into new wineskins, and both are preserved.” (Luke 5:37-38)

According to our strategy we have to pay attention to the children, we have to invest capital in them instead of waiting for the changing of existent, hesitant mentality. These children constitute the future, because after 20-30 years, we’ll pass on the baton to them, and they’ll take up our place.

This is the reason why we deal with the coming generation. In our opinion a young person can be of great use to the Church and to the society. The younger generation can be strong in its faith, profound in knowledge, well balanced in feeling, and strong in will. If we can educate prepared Christians to be physicians, teachers, politicians, ministers, men of low, artists, workmen, there is a possibility to exercise influence on the society, to shape the society and the way of thinking, mentality. The children of our kindergarten will be active for God as professing Christians. By this mean it can be diminished the secularization of the society, and the Church can become stronger through the local communities.


csemete ovodaPe data de 15 septembrie 1997 grădinița a fost înființată în urma planificării și rugăciunilor noastre. La început am pornit cu un singur grup de 14 copii. În prima zi, la ora opt, 14 copii s-au întâlnit și s-au cunoscut în compania a două educatoare. La acea vreme doamna Dr. Lészai Emőke și domna Chris Van Zanen au fost educatoarele.

Până în 2007 grădinița a aparținut Bisericii Reformate din Transilvania. După aceea a aparținut Fundației Csemete, iar după acreditare Grădinița a devenit personalitate juridică. În primul an de grădiniță activitatea a început într-o casă închiriată de către un preot american reformat. Între timp am început restaurarea casei moștenite de la părinții noștri pentru a asigura un loc potrivit copiilor. Timp de un an clădirea a fost restaurată.




În toamna anului 1998 copii au continuat să se joace, să învețe, și să se roage într-o casă reconstruită pe strada Paris nr 13. Am achiziționat treptat mobilierul și obiectele necesare, și în același timp am transformat grădina noastră în loc de joacă.


În anul 2003 am început construirea unei noi clădiri conform standardelor europene, cu săli moderne, mobilier nou, cu toate obiectele necesare pentru dezvoltarea armonioasă a copiilor. Clădirea nouă a fost inaugurată în anul 2007, și un an mai târziu (2008) am reabilitat și curtea grădiniței într-un loc de joacă modern și propice dezvoltării fizice și a abilităților copiilor. Am proiectat și executat un loc de joacă conform UE.

Clubul parintilor

Once per month we organise a Parents Club, when the parents can suggest different themes to be discussed (children's health, meal, habituation, illnesses, immune system, Christmas, carnival, painting eggs, etc.) We look for famous specialists, who will hold a lecture about the suggested theme and will answer the questions of the parents. This year the responsible for this activity is Laura Babos.


In fiecare miercuri copiii cu deficiențe psichomotorii se joacă cu colegii lor sănătoși la Grădinița Reformată Csemete. În aceste condiții se pot cunoaște și accepta mai bine. Ei învață cum să se compoarte unii cu alții. Intrarea este gratuită. Educatoarea Kata Kolozsi și profesoara Dr. Lídia Berszán conduc activitățile.

The kindergarten is a Hungarian-English one. Nowadays the life is unimaginable without knowing a language of international circulation. Without overburdening the children, they learn English in an easy way. We have English speaking volunteers who communicate with the children in English. Theyl spend seven hours a day with the groups next to the nursery teacher. In this way our children will learn more easily how to express themselves in English. Every Wednesday at five o’clock in the afternoon an extra music lesson starts in the nursery.

As the computer and Internet related technology dominate our lives in the 21st century we believe it is vital for children to accept the computer as a part of everyday life. Using age appropriate software, our aim is to familiarise the child with basic use of the computer. Carefully selected software provides the opportunitites for them to improve their language skills as well as learn things such as shapes, numbers, colours, name of the animals, to differentiate sounds etc.

The children study Romanian language too. The fact, children whose mother tongue is Hungarian have serious difficulties in the elementary school if they don’t know some Romanian. There are gym classes in the curricula and parents may opt for a fitness class, folk and modern dance class, swimming class as well.

The aim of our activity is both the Christian education and creating the most favourable, satisfactory conditions for them to grow up, to satisfy their thirst of knowledge, the intellectual curiosity.

Over half a century ago, the communist regime banned the Reformed kindergartens and now we are very glad to be able to start again the denominational kindergartens. The Hungarian teaching at every level is not complete without the Hungarian kindergartens. Overcoming the difficulties, our well-equipped kindergarten is waiting for 

RajzFor us is very important to create the proper environment for the children to play freely and passionately. Approaching to the school age we are focusing more on learning, developing manual skill and thinking. We would like for our children to become faithful, well-balanced, very worthy persons for our church and society.the children. The phrase “ora et labora” = pray and work – in the case of our children is changed to: play, pray and learn!

The year before last year 45 children attended our kindergarten in three groups. In the 2008–2009 school-year there were already four groups. Two nursery groups, each of ten children (two-three years old), these were lead by Eszter Simon and Éva Ambrus, one little group (three-four years old children), guided by Csilla Jankó, and the big group (five-six years old children) lead by dr. Emőke Lészai.
