Love, Learning & Laughter

“PLAY is the work of childhood.”
-Fred Rogers

Dear Parents,
I would like to welcome you and your children to the International Preschool and Kindergarten where their feelings count, their sadness is comforted, their joy is shared, and their accomplishments are praised. It is the wholehearted passion that makes our school truly a special and a wonderful place of learning for our children. They will be filled with learning, laughter, smiles and wonder.

I have been the school director of the International Preschool and Kindergarten since September 2015. I had my BS in Psychology and MA in Psychological Counseling and Guidance at Bosphorus University, Istanbul and got specialized in preschool education. I have been working in international preschools in Ankara since 1994 with an emphasis on early childhood education, child development, and parent education. My motto is “happiness is working with children”. My goal is to ensure that all children feel secure, safe, and are happy and loved which makes any learning possible.

The early years are learning years. Children in their earliest years have tremendous curiosity and capacity to learn. All of our skilled and qualified staff works hard to make school a positive experience for all children. They encourage and help your children learn and grow in a safe, loving, and caring atmosphere. Our staff’s commitment is outstanding and our kids are the beneficiaries. They look forward to enriching your children’s life.

Your child will be in the best hands, receiving a strong educational foundation, and most importantly, enjoying their time spent learning. I am extremely proud to say that our children will be more than prepared for the primary grades ahead of them, academically as well as socially and emotionally.

Lastly; we value building strong relationships with our International Preschool and Kindergarten parents and families. We work with you as a partner in education to ensure your child’s overall development.

I look forward to meeting you ALL!
