Duke Campus

A full-day preschool and child development center offering a nurturing, exploratory, educational program serving children 12 weeks to six years. Open to Duke benefit eligible members only. 

Our Reggio inspired Durham School is located near Duke’s West Campus, serving approximately 170 gleeful children. We have several outdoor playspaces where children can discover, run, jump, dig, dance and delight in a safe nurturing environment. Students and teachers alike enjoy long journeys in the dazzling woods that surround our campus. Classes take hikes to The Nasher, ride the Bull Connector downtown, explore the creek bed, and unearth all the mysteries the four seasons have to offer. Our rooms are designed to facilitate all the wonder and exploration a child can dream up. We host professionally trained chefs, who create locally sourced, organic and nourishing meals for our staff, children and families alike. 




We have a new website! Thank you to parent Alumni Jonathon Weisenfeld for the redesign. We will be working out all the bugs in the next little bit. Let us know if you have any trouble, and we will iron it out.
