Our school will be showcasing a Child Focused Development Program (ÇOGED) project: Montessori- Regio emilia- Waldrof education models applied in pre-school education were combined and developed and turned into a 21st century education model.

The implemented project has been integrated into the Turkish education system and has become a holistic education model suitable for the child’s individual skills and interests, self-regulation skills, individual learning speed and character traits. A sample curriculum has been prepared, making it applicable in every country, and its sustainability has been ensured. In this model, children work with the materials they want, whenever they want, wherever they want.

To give the child freedom of movement and activity in a pre-prepared environment so that he / she can improve himself. Learning in nature has priority. In the project, 9000 teachers were trained and 17,000 children benefited from education. Our education coordinator wrote a book and this book reached 25,000 people.

Our study was selected as the project short film was shot in Turkey and that makes a difference. This movie has been watched 1,000,000 times in the world. Our trainings continued online during the pandemic process, and the project was introduced to 3400 teachers living and training in different regions through the Teacher Academy Foundation, a stakeholder of the Varkey Foundation.
