Structured, Engaging and Conducive

Environment for your child




Dukesbridge caters for children aged 2 to 5 in Mauritius and currently operates out of four campuses located in Moka, Vacoas, Curepipe and Port Louis.  Its origin dates back to 1992 when its sister school, Les Marionnettes, was founded by two primary school teaching veterans to meet the childcare needs of the Quatre-Bornes community.  From its humble beginnings, the school has evolved into a full-fledged nursery, pre-primary and primary education hub welcoming children from across the island.  Backed by the growing demand of parents, Dukesbridge was launched as an English-Medium preparatory school.


All through fun and play, our educators have been fully trained to care, equip and empower every child according to his or her current developmental stage and needs.  We strongly believe in developing a child’s confidence as well as inculcating an awareness of the child’s surrounding environment from an early age.  Our all-rounder approach is aimed at nurturing the child’s intellectual and communication skills while at the same time placing value on multi-disciplinary extracurricular activities such as music, dance and sports.


Dukesbridge offers an international proposition to pre-schooling in Mauritius at reasonable rates.  The cornerstone of our success is the trusted partnership between the school and the parents.  Our differentiated approach is child and parent centered; we listen to your child but we also work with you.  Parents have an individual login which gives them access to their child’s daily journal, an opportunity to follow the classroom programme and even suggested activities at home that align with the child’s learning progression.  This reflects our commitment to deploy our best efforts in ensuring that your child thrives and flourishes.

Registration Process and Fees

Prospective parents are advised to contact the administrative department of the school for any enquiries and for the enrolment process. Admission is subject to availability of places and is at the discretion of Management. Whilst admission to the nursery takes place once the child turns 2, it is advisable to put the name of the child down for enrolment at the earliest opportunity. The child automatically transitions to the pre-primary school upon turning 3. Children from both Mauritian resident and non-resident backgrounds are accepted, however a commitment to using the English language at home is required by the parents.

Behind the Scenes


There are many proud moments in a parent’s life but surely one of them has to be watching your own child perform in a Musical on the big stage in front of a thousand spectators. With bated breath, parents and their guests were kept on the edge of their seats for an hour and a half watching our youngsters perform our first ever School Musical at the Mahatma Gandhi Institute (MGI) Auditorium in Mauritius a few days ago…and boy were they good! Stage fright nor general fear of public appearance had no place amongst the children; they were just so excited to do what they had been preparing for: singing and acting their way into the hearts of the crowd. Many have asked me how this became possible and I thought it would be good to share some of what has been an incredible journey over the last several months. 



Happy Independence Day


After an extended rainy weekend during which Mauritius dodged a bullet as Tropical Cyclone “Haliba” slowly disappeared, the Heavy Rain Warning was lifted just in time for today’s national celebrations. Tomorrow, the 12th March 2015, marks the 47th anniversary of Mauritius’ claim to independence from the British, and as per the tradition, a flag-raising ceremony is held across all schools on the day prior. Teachers and students had been preparing for this day of celebration for weeks: dance performances had been rehearsed, festive decorations had been ordered, the bouncy castles had been organised, the lawns had been cut last Friday … My heart almost sank as I looked outside through the window this morning. As the rain bucketed down, a wall of fog cascading down the mountain range, wind blowing a gale and a power cut thrown in for good measure, I wondered how this celebration would play out. 



Sleep like a baby


"It is 6pm and I can already feel anxious thoughts invading my mind about how many times Ashton will wake up tonight. I feel like I am at the end of my tether as he screams so much at bedtime and then through the night he wakes every hour until he decides it’s time to start his day at 5am…”
