Little Dalton is a truly bilingual (Putonghua and English) kindergarten guided by the Dalton
Plan and modeled after New York’s The Dalton School, a world renowned school ranked
among the Forbes’ Top 15 U.S. Prep Schools. Our aim is to provide a joyful environment that will nurture children’s inquisitiveness; develop their self-confidence in their own intelligence and ability to succeed; exploit their natural ability to acquire languages; and educate them to become happy, responsible and independent learners and thinkers.
We feel strongly that education led by teachers, examinations, and grades can produce
excellent students, but not necessarily great learners and thinkers. Great learners and
thinkers are driven by internal motivation, which can only be stimulated by giving our children appropriate autonomy, responsibilities, and opportunities for collaboration in their learning. This is the basis of the famed Dalton Plan, one of the most successful child-centered teaching models in the world, and the foundation of Little Dalton.
We offer Playgroup, Pre-K, K1, K2, K3. To enable a truly child-centered learning while ensuring sufficient social development, the staff to student ratio is maintained at maximum 1 to 10. For children who want more time to experience the Dalton Plan, optional Extra Dalton classes are available for children enrolled at Little Dalton.
Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions. We could arrange school tours for you to see our beautiful campus and find out more about who we are and what we believe in.
With all best wishes and kind regards,
