The Turkish-American Association (TAA) is a rooted and prestigious non-governmental organization established in 1951 upon bilateral agreements between Turkey and USA. TAD Preschool is the first pre-school educational institution of TAA and also acts as the Master Franchisee of TAA preschools authorized to deal franchisees throughout Turkey. The educational curriculum of TAA Preschool was developed by Counselors and Academics in 2 years. Within this period, the reasons behind children not being able to learn English in Turkey was researched, international standards were evaluated and both national and international research studies have been analyzed before the development of the TAD Preschool Curriculum.
All TAD Preschool teachers attend regular in-service teacher training programs conducted by expert teacher trainers in order to keep all teachers up to date with modern improvements and technologies as well as equipping them with the teaching methodologies that will serve the interests of our learners and to ensure that all teaching and instruction is conducted within the TAD Preschool standards.
There are various techniques and methods developed in the world for preschool education. These methods include Montessori’s Educational Approach which focuses on the child developing a positive attitude towards the school, presenting a love for learning and discipline, motivation, acting independently, enjoying repetition and working, increasing self-confidence, increasing curiosity, inner trust and safety feelings, Reggio Emilio’s Education Method which focuses on the child developing the desired skills, pre-planned group work in a designed setting and interaction about the environment, Gardner’s Multiple Intelligence theory which focuses on the 8 different intelligences that children possess and the High Scope Education System which focuses on the social, emotional, cognitive and physical development of children.
