Little Dalton offers a unique learning experience for our students. We are proud to provide an opportunity to study in a bilingual, child-centered setting with an emphasis on inquiry and individualisation following the Dalton Plan. Students enrolled in our optional Extra Dalton classes gleam the benefits of additional reinforcement and extension of skills through practical application with their peers during a diverse variety of activities.

Interviews and places are offered based on availability.
Hard copies of the application form and all required materials must be submitted by post, by courier or in person. As we require parent’s original signature on our application form, we cannot accept applications by email.
