A qualified education supporting academic and social development provided to the child in pre-school term will constitute a secure base for the future lives. It is a truth that a conscious, qualified and eligible education taken in the early years of life is directly proportional to the learning talent in latter ages and future success.
Çevre Kindergardens aim to raise individuals who follow rapidly progressing technological innovations, take a stand against increasing problems, know how to see perspectives from different angles in order to gain problem solving skills and sustain their existence. In this sense, to meet all the progressive needs of our children, an eclectic programme consisted of internationally authorised and ratified educational programmes like High Scope, Multiple Intelligence, Gems and Creative Games designed by experts in educational field are implemented. The most important reason our kindergartens are preferred is our strong foreign language education. Carried out by predominantly native teachers, the English education provides a concrete infrastructure to facilitate our students’ transition into Primary School. In addition, having the music and art lessons implemented by native teachers enable an atmosphere for our students to learn authentically by experience.

Music, visual arts, swimming, gym, modern dance, chess, mind games, branch lessons; ballet, gymnastics, piano, club works constitute a very important part of our educational program.
