In order to effectively utilize children’s potentials, suitable environments and conditions are created to bring forth these potentials. To achieve this goal, a guidance approach is embraced for our children, enhancing their learning abilities through hands-on experiences. The preschool period is when children’s development in all areas is most active, and their learning pace is at its peak. In this context, the younger the children, the quicker and more effective their learning processes become, leading to more lasting retention of acquired knowledge.
Our educational programs are designed and implemented according to the developmental stages of the children. Throughout this process, our aim is to nurture children who are confident, capable of using language accurately and effectively, possessing self-regulation skills, being tolerant, having creative thinking abilities, developing critical thinking skills, being able to express their emotions and communicate effectively, seeking help from adults when needed, and fulfilling their responsibilities to themselves, their families, and their surroundings.
