The English School of Istanbul Preschool is the first branch of ESK in Turkey opening for the 2013-2014 academic year in Istanbul.

As the ESI team, our mission is to develop successful, caring, independent citizens of Turkey and the world, who are able to lead the future generations with their intelligence, values and determination. All of our teachers have UK Qualified Teacher's Status (QTS).
