Kid's International Pre-School
Kid's International Preschool teachers are carefully selected based on their previous teaching experience, love of children and ability to bond and effectively communicate with their students. Our teachers provide children opportunities to explore a wide variety of materials while providing gentle instruction as required. The child's enjoyment and learning through these explorations are given more importance than the final product or outcome.
We currently have a wonderful, united team of native English-speaking teachers. Every teacher has real concern for the current and future needs of our students. Working closely together, our educator’s goal is to provide all our students a quality foundation to start their formal education in an English speaking environment.
KIPS was co-founded by Carolina Tankal and Hale Baran in 2013. They share over 25 years’ experience as educators and parents. Together they have created a safe, positive, and caring environment where children are provided the basic building-blocks for their formal education.
Carolina Tankal is an expat who now calls Ankara her home. A mother of three young children, she knows the importance of a quality pre-school program. Her teaching philosophy goes beyond the classroom. At the end of the day, a child's enjoyment, happiness and self-confidence are what are important.
Hale Baran has over 20 years’ experience as an educator and school administrator. Two decades of active, involved education has provided her with insights into the necessary building-blocks required of pre-schoolers during their time with her. KIPS programs and curriculum have been developed to exercise and build the skills needed to succeed after a student’s time at KIPS.
