Photo of English Daycare / International Preschool in IstanbulKIS Preschool was designed to expose children to various languages from their earliest years. Learning is encouraged through play in class and outdoors. A wide variety of resources are used to encourage children to participate and to be interested in their learning. Different teaching techniques like art and craft activities, songs and rhymes, story time, circle time free and organized playtime, and outdoor play; help children actively learn, explore, create, and grow into confident individuals.

Our full-day English preschool program offers teaching styles that include whole class, structured individual, small and large group activities, giving children a well-balanced preschool education.

KIS preschoolers are also eligible to participate in a French immersion program taught by native Francophone Aboriginal teachers. Students learn French by signing and playing. KIS students not only learn the language but take part in French celebrations and public holidays with group projects and presentations.

At KIS, our goal is to provide preschoolers with a level-headed program with the holistic approach that will begin to lay the building blocks for a lifetime of learning and interest in languages.

KG students learn through play, purposeful work, puppetry, narration, and other expressive arts and designs. The rewards of this play-based approach to school entry become apparent when children enter Grade 1, and start their school journey up through the years.

KIS students now have the opportunity to explore the worlds of literacy, numeracy and arithmancy. The KG program plans to achieve and acquire language competence, build rich vocabulary, and broaden knowledge by exposing students to carefully selected curriculum. KG curriculum allows students to analyze and observe their world, thus articulate their observations. Students develop lifelong capacities for creative thinking, self-confidence, reasoning and dialogue, awareness of others, and readiness and enthusiasm for academic learning.
