Mala ulica: space for many things

This is a great place for mothers who want to actively spend their time with their babies, future moms who want to be well-prepared for their role, and toddlers and kids who can play and socialize with their peers.

    I am an economist, I have a Master’s in Business Science, I am a mediator, and a mother of three. When I was out of ideas on where to go and what to do on long rainy weekends so that all three of them would be amused, the idea arose on a family center like Mala ulica: a friendly and comfortable space for mothers and all pre-school-aged children. I think that I managed to successfully realize the idea together with my committed and enthusiastic team and ample support from the City Municipality of Ljubljana.

    After graduating from the Academy of Fine Arts and Design, I continued my studies at the Faculty of Education, where I gained knowledge on the education of children and adults. Artistic expression and creating together with children has been a part of my life since my teenage years. Their joy gives me fresh ideas and the drive for new and different projects. Talking to the parents opens new horizons of thought for me, while the staff makes the dreams of expanding the Mala ulica program a reality.

    I am a teacher by profession. I am interested in things that are different, unconventional; that is why I am especially drawn to those children in Mala ulica who differ from the average. I really enjoy looking after the children in holiday daycare, where I can get to know them better during that week. I like being in their company, because it helps me to bring out my own inner child. Currently, I am challenging myself by hosting groups of parents for the Incredible Years project

    I studied social studies and received the Prešeren Award for Students for my thesis The body as a medium of communication and distress control of the youth. I spent many years honing my abilities and experience in psychosocial help for children and youth in emotional distress and in support to their families. My colleague and I currently host groups for parents as part of the Incredible Years license project – I am also no stranger to creative and movement workshops.

    I’m an ethnologist, cultural anthropologist and a mom of two daughters. Ever since I can remember sports activities have been a joyous part of my life.
    Joining my love for working with kids and a passion for sports I decided to combine the two and share this at the Mala Ulica family center. As a sports
    educator for children and youth I motivate and bring a smile to the families that participate in my gym and sports activities. Working at the MU family center is
    very enriching and fulfilling making it a pleasure to run creative workshops, do fun activities, invent and imagine new made up stories which both myself and
    the children enjoy on a weekly basis.

    By profession I’m a forest engineer. As far back as I can remember the forest has been my backyard. My love for nature and adventure has taken me on nature walks with my dog, climbing Birch trees, playing in tree houses or going on long alpine tours. Luckily at MU I am able to join two passions, namely working with kids and nature walks in the forest.
    I also have a knack for surprising the little ones with different fun and educational cooking workshops or creating a completely new toy made up of materials given to us by nature. What I enjoy most of all is walking through the wooded footpaths on Rožnik where we can discover new and hidden secrets that the forest has to offer.

Mala ulica house rules

Mala ulica is designed so that families feel comfortable here. We pride ourselves in providing quality services, ensuring hygiene standards, and placing special emphasis on the safety of the visitors.

Visits

Once the space capacities have been met, the doors of Mala ulica are locked so that we can provide a quality service. Booking entrance in advance is not possible. Please give notice in advance for groups of 8 or more children. Children may enter Mala ulica only if they are accompanied by an adult (over 18 years old) who is responsible for them for the entire duration of the visit to Mala ulica.

Diseases

Here at Mala ulica, we strive to prevent the spread of disease through regular cleanings and ensuring the health standards. Children who are not feeling well and are sick should refrain from visiting Mala ulica at that time. If you find out your child has an infectious disease (e.g. chickenpox, measles, etc.) after having visited Mala ulica, please inform us about this immediately.

Hygiene

We want to keep the spaces as clean as possible and to protect the visitors, especially children playing on the floor, so we recommend everyone wears slippers inside Mala ulica. You can bring your own (and your child’s); some slippers are available at the reception.

Access

There is a specially designated area in front of the main entrance for parking strollers. Motor vehicles can be parked on the outer public parking lot on Dalmatinova Street or in one of the parking garages (Trdinova, Kozolec, or Kongresni trg). The family center is accessible to movement-impaired children and adults; the entrance for people in wheelchairs can be reached from the park.
