The aim of the Program

The aim of the program is to strengthen and bring up to the highest standard of child development within its own conditions with the preschool education. Women take an active role in working life therefore this enables an increase in demand for preschool education and the institutions within that sector.

The education of the people who needs special requirements is very important both in our country and all around the world. As a result of being a modern-social republic, requirements for private institutions have been increased with the developments in special education services, organizational forms and the rights provided by the regulations.

The program will also consider the compatibility at the changeover from the secondary school to vocational high schools and from vocational schools to undergraduate education.
