I am not led,
The mission of Little Dalton is to provide a progressive, creative, nurturing dual language and teaching environment of excellence that:
The Dalton Plan is the keystone to our philosophy. We aim at providing an environment in children’s early years that nurtures their natural inquisitiveness, develops self-confidence in their own capacity to problem solve and succeed, exploits their natural ability to acquire languages, and educates them to be responsible and independent learners and thinkers. Little Dalton challenges each student to develop intellectual independence, creativity, and a sense of responsibility and respect towards others both within the school and in the wider community.
Students are taught to take the lead in their own life-long learning process. Our motto is:
“Non ducor, duco” – I am not led, I lead”
The Dalton Plan
The Dalton Plan is based on an educational pioneer, Helen Parkhurst’s strong belief that whenever children are given responsibility for their learning, they instinctively seek the best way of achieving it and execute their decisions with focus and diligence, leading to success.
Little Dalton is a private independent kindergarten with a diverse student body which provides child-centered education for families in Hong Kong.
Little Dalton is a progressive, Dual Language Kindergarten guided by The Dalton Plan. Our curriculum is specially designed and delivered by experts to combine diligence and creativity.
