No, it is not required to be potty trained to start school. However, after child’s transition to our school, we discuss the potty training process with the parents and start the process with cooperation of parents.
2. How do you handle challenging behaviors of children?
Verbal praises and recognition are used to motivate positive behaviour for children. Children are given choices rather than given orders so they feel they have the ability to make decisions for themselves. Food or treats are never given as rewards to accomplish a certain task or achieve certain behaviours.

4. How do you do new children’s transition in to your school?
During the first days of the school, it is accepted that one of child’s relatives can join to the classroom along with the child.

But in average we want parents to spare time with us at least for 3 days.
