Academic Works

 

      The school day begins at 8 a.m. and ends at 4:30 p.m. Our goal is to provide students with the opportunity to express themselves freely in an open and relaxed atmosphere. Students are taught academic and social skills which will benefit them in the future.

           The children are allocated to one of three categories; pre-kindergarten, junior kindergarten and senior kindergarten.

           Activity areas are provided for our students to explore and feed their curiosity. These areas include house pretend-play, building, science and nature, music, puppetry, board and water games, traffic and Montessori activities. Students also take part in a wide variety of structured activities.

     A homeroom teacher is responsible for the planning and coordination of the students' education.      Project Based Education is one of the most important features of our school. Students learn to problem solve and do research on the project of their choice. Effort is made to ensure that students gain experience and knowledge through discovery. Throughout the year teachers also instruct various GEMS activities which offer effective, practical, economical, and schedule-friendly ways to ensure a high-quality of science and math. During language activity hours, students improve their speaking, listening and fluency in the Turkish language. They also have the opportunity to learn and develop new concepts and ideas, increase their vocabulary and express themselves freely in Turkish.  

       During English the aim is to introduce them to another language through games, songs, stories, arts and crafts. Our intension is to give them a life-long interest in learning a foreign language. Children have 8 periods of English classes in Pre-kindergarten and 15 periods of English classes in junior and senior kindergarten.

     Each age group has different branch lessons according to their age level. Senior Kindergarten has PE, chess, arts, dance, science lab, music and IT.  Junior Kindergarten has PE, ceramics, dance and music. Pre- kindergarten has PE, ceramics, music and drama. The aim of these subjects is to increase creativity and a sense of rhythm; to improve their problem solving ability; to focus on physical activity, cooperation, endurance, strength and flexibility through various activities.      

            In order to support student development and education, the counselling service works hand-in-hand with parents and teachers by following student progress closely. If necessary, meetings are held with students and their parents. 

              A monthly bulletin is published on our website and provides information for parents on activities and events at our school.

With this understanding in mind, monitoring and support activities are carried on in order to improve the educational, social and emotional capacities of the students. Inasmuch, to find solutions to the different difficulties they may experience and to help them reach the different goals set for their age.
Working closely with parents and children, the Kindergarten Guidance Counselling Unit carries out, amongst other:

  • Supporting the students during their adjustment period.
  • Administering various objective tests and inventories in order to evaluate developmental areas and as such, guide educational processes throughout the year. (Bracken Basic Concept Test, Frostig Visual Perception Test, TIMI Multiple Intelligence Test, School Illness Inventory, Bender Gestalt Test, Koppitz Human Drawing Test, etc.)
  • Providing individual counseling for both students and parents. The results of these such tests and inventories are shared with teachers and families, and, if necessary, counseling is provided.
  • Identifying strengths and weaknesses in educational programs as they apply to our students to later help in their organization and application.
