Connecting Education, Art, Nature and Local Culture

The Art of Education Association Bodrum (BESD) was founded in 2014 to establish an exciting and inexpensive alternative to private education in Turkey, inspired by the Waldorf approach to schooling, and in line with the Turkish Ministry of Education.

Having begun in 2011 with 5 families by establishing a Waldorf inspired playgroup located in Bitez, Bodrum, we are now a growing community of more than 20 young families, a team of highly motivated and trained Waldorf teachers and mentors, and the shared aim to establish a fully accredited Waldorf Kindergarten and Primary School in Bodrum.
