Q. What are your hours of operation?

A. We are open Monday through Friday from 8.00 – 5.00pm. Our staff work in socially distanced environments and no outside guests are currently allowed on the premises.



Q. What is the DK Schoolhouse Education Philosophy?

The heart of DK Schoolhouse’s teaching philosophy is to foster the skills of resiliency and emotional intelligence, which are crucial for promoting academic, social and personal success. We focus on instilling a love of learning in each child and helping them build valuable life skills to help them succeed later in life.

We believe, and the leading educational studies have proven, that children are better able to explore new areas of learning and engage with the world around them when they are given the tools to help express, understand and cope with their own emotions, and the emotions of others.

Youth and Sports in an effort to stop the spread of Covid19 and the effects it has had on education worldwide.

The school year begins on the 9th of August, 2021 and runs through mid July. We run three terms per academic year. We observe important public holidays and Civil New Year. Our holiday schedule is minimal and we try to accommodate parents working schedules as much as possible. A calendar is given out at the start of each school year detailing our holiday schedule. A 1 – 2 week holiday is taken at the end of each school term.
