It is essential to consider limited life experiences of students when it comes to preschool language teaching. Our children’s short-timed motivations are utilized to provide interactive speaking skills. Frameworks of our educational processes are meaningful activities, goal-oriented games and thematic approach. Fairy tales and songs which constitute much of the fantasy world of the age group, are the key elements for the language training we offer. In our kindergarden, preschool language training is conducted by highly experienced, distinguished experts in the relative age group. At the specific days of the week the students are taught visual arts, creative drama, music, physical education, chess, information Technologies, swimming, folk dances and balet which are given by our specialists.

We believe in the importance of parent-school communication in order to give a healthy and effecive education for our students.
