The sense of rhythm affects and impress many developmental stages. This activity gives the student the ability to distinguish sounds, to ensure the integrity of attention while listening to the sound, and to accompany the music with their body and voice.
Modern dance develops children's creativity and movement abilities, enables them to discover their own bodies and reveals the unique rhythm that each child feeds inside.
Thanks to folk dances, our children learn to protect the cultural values of the society we live in. The aim of this activity is to teach folk dances, which are a part of our culture, by popularizing them, and to develop the child's self-confidence and give the child the ability to act as a group.
In Chess activity, it is aimed that the children can dream, develop their attention, be patient and self-confident, be respectful to the opponent in the games, play the game according to the rules, and most importantly, develop strategies by having fun.
Information Technologies and Coding
The activity aims to teach our children to use technology in a good way and to trigger the urge to develop technology in them.
With our drama activities, we ensure that children are active in the learning process, allow them to learn by doing and experiencing, support them to express themselves more easily and to become productive individuals, and make contributions to establishing positive social relations
With the library activity, we aim to help children acquire the habit of reading books at a young age and to adapt to the social environment by teaching them the rules of the library.
With art activities, children have the opportunity to use all their senses effectively. Children can use their senses such as sight, hearing, touch, smell and even taste effectively while working with paints, papers and kneading materials. While the richness of art materials supports the creativity of the child, it also develops the habits of using the materials effectively.
Science and Nature Activities
During the experiment, the feeling of curiosity, the desire to ask questions, learn and explore increases in the child who learns by experience. Thanks to science and nature activities, children become more sensitive to the environment and nature. Feelings of responsibility increase. It is easier to learn by doing. It is an activity for children to understand and learn about natural events such as rain, wind or simply plant growing in daily life. It enables to use laboratory materials correctly while doing research, to interpret the observed event, and to learn while wondering.
Culinary activities enable children to use their attention, planning skills, mathematical perception, aesthetic thinking ability, creativity and manual skills simultaneously. The culinary activities include activities related to vegetables and fruits, different types of food, kitchen tools and utensils, cutting, chopping, boiling, mixing. Concepts such as number, colour, shape, texture, taste completely develop children's vocabulary. Language development is supported with various techniques by targeting the development of fine muscles of children in the activities.
