A day in Dawnwood is always exciting. Our students get a chance to follow their own interests, collaborate on fun and challenging projects and pursue their passions and interests. Dawnwood allows our children to make the learning environment distinctly theirs, decorating the walls with their beautiful art and setting up the resources and play areas how best they see fit. Its exciting, its dynamic, and most of all – its all about the child. Dawnwood Kindergarten really is a child’s learning garden.

Meals

Dawnwood sees mealtimes as the most important part of learning during the day. Collaborating with and supervised by Guangzhou Medical University, we prepare two main meals and two snacks each day and we make sure that children are nutritionally balanced.

We treat mealtimes as an important social occasion in which we support children to be independent, to share with others, and to talk with their friends, which makes the mealtimes become an enjoyable culture.

During the day our children will also have time to rest or quietly listen to stories, enjoy their music, and throughout the day have frequent opportunities to play and choose their own adventure.
