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. 



Group Tours  

We have lots to do to prepare for our upcoming school year and will be suspending tours. Please check back with us in the fall. We can't wait to meet you in person!
