(age 3 to 7 years)
The Dulwich Kindergarten, known as DUCKS, caters to our youngest students from Nursery to Year 2 (age 3 to 7 years). Our DUCKS school provides a happy and purposeful introduction to learning.
In DUCKS our approach to learning is student-centred and cross-curricular. Our inquiry-based learning model nurtures learning dispositions and engages students in topics in which they express interest. Children learn how to communicate their ideas and listen to others, to solve problems, and to persevere with relevant tasks.
We believe that, just as children have different interests, each child has an individual learning style. We understand that students make progress in different areas at different rates and we work closely with parents to support their child's unique learning journey.
Our DUCKS environment is specially designed to meet the needs of our youngest students. We encourage outdoor learning to develop their curiosity and look to nurture confident young learners who take pride in their achievements.
