EARLY yEARS pROGRAMME

Our early years’ programmes are full day programs based on the philosophy that young children benefit from developing skills of personal independence.

The international backgrounds and experiences of the BLIS community create a learning environment rich in diversity.

The International Baccalaureate Primary Years Program offers an international education through a learner-centered, inquiry-based, team-teaching approach.

At BLIS, we utilize a wide range of resources. As our students begin to develop the skills of lifelong learning and international-mindedness, they apply their learning to the real world.

We promote academic, aesthetic, physical and social growth. By recognizing the individual abilities, interests and talents of each child, our young learners are encouraged to question ideas and search for knowledge. We foster critical thinking and creativity.

Grades 1-4

 

Grades 1-4 continues the International Baccalaureate (IB) Primary Years Program (PYP) and demonstrates a learner-centered, inquiry-based, team-teaching approach.

Each year, students engage in challenging units of inquiry that explore the transdisciplinary themes of Who We Are, Where We Are in Place and Time, How We Express Ourselves, How the World Works, How We Organize Ourselves, and Sharing the Planet.

The program focuses on developing strong academic English language skills. Each homeroom class has a full-time international teacher and a full-time Turkish teacher.

Our rigorous academic program includes study in languages, mathematics, units of inquiry (science, social studies) and the arts. Specialist teachers strengthen the curriculum with instruction in physical education, visual arts, music, drama, dance, library and information communication technology (ICT).

At the end of fourth grade, students present a culminating exhibition demonstrating successful completion of their IB PYP years.
