In December 2011, as 5 families, we created a Waldorf Education inspired Childrens Playgroup operating as a non-profit parent initiative for our children in Bitez, Bodrum. So far we have worked under the law of Imece, hence our name Imece Cocuk Bahcesi, which gave us the opportunity to develop slowly, so that we could explore what is right for our children and for us.
Over these 2.5 years our group has grown to 20 families, and many others are showing more interest in our small initiative. Therefore our market is expanding and we believe that the right time has come to formalise our project. As an alternative to a government school or one of the expensive private colleges, we aim to offer an inexpensive, private education both inspired by Waldorf and in line with the Turkish Ministry of Education’s requirements.
