Life is a miracle. Your child’s first five years lay a most important foundation for a happy, healthy and productive life to follow.
Each of our Duck’s Nest classrooms revolves around the development of both an individual and group social awareness. Our young students are encouraged to feel a sense of responsibility not only to themselves, but also to each other, to the environment, and ultimately to all life on our planet.
Our goal is to open the eyes and minds of our students to their unique environment and the world around them. Our indoor and outdoor environments are carefully set up to help the child to develop a sense of beauty and harmony, an appreciation of the balance of nature.
Duck’s Nest encourages children to appreciate and respect human differences, cultural diversity and global awareness. Our schools employ a multicultural approach to teaching children; reflecting the diverse socio-economic and ethnic makeup of our local community. We believe that compassion and tolerance are among our highest virtues.
We strive to give each child a deep feeling of being truly valued, included and honored. By accepting each child’s experiences and drawing them into the curriculum, we are affirming their individual backgrounds and cultures, which results in a tremendous increase in their self-confidence and self-esteem. Every Duck’s Nest day is seen as a unique opportunity for your child to take another step forward, learn to take risks, through play and social interaction, towards their personal path of development.
Supported by a collaborative and an enthusiastic community of Duck's Nest staff, peers and parents our children construct meaning through exploration, experimentation and reflection. Our goal is to nurture an awareness of diversity, mutual respect, compassion and empathy, but most of all to instill an enthusiasm for learning.
As your school of choice, we join hands with you in laying significant building blocks in your child’s earliest and most formative years. When you choose Duck’s Nest we understand that you are making a decision to entrust us with a very important responsibility.
