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.

In the saddle


It’s Friday afternoon. As the van pulls up outside the Dukesbridge school gates, our little ones squeal with delight. It’s finally time to board. With faces beaming with excitement, we make our way to the stables for our weekly horse-riding lesson.

I love animals. I have two dogs at home and have always thought that they were a man’s best companion. However, since I have started accompanying the children to the stables, I have been pleasantly surprised to see how equally loving and friendly horses can be. The children and I have since developed a strong bond with these animals. Our little pony “Noisette” and a bigger one “Letchi” are our favourites, and it seems that even they are super excited to see us every week. 



My work is PLAY!


Out of all the traditional games I used to play a couple of decades ago in Mauritius, my absolute favourite was “La marelle”. Well, I thought it was a traditional Mauritian one until I joined Dukesbridge a few years ago and discovered that it is a widely played game all around the world, the English name for it being “Hopscotch”! As I showed my students how to play it last week, I was taken back to my own kindergarten years and relived some cherished memories of having fun playing with friends in the village.  



Heathy snacks for school

It’s that time of year again; hurrying the kids out the door for school! With all the craziness in the morning to get the kids ready, along with the madness that happens after school, preparing them healthy snacks can become lost in the mix. Let’s face it… kids as well as adults have some pretty inconsistent eating habits. Snacking now appears to be a necessary part of everyday life as many children seem to burn through food very fast. Growing up as a kid, I still remember keeping an eye on the classroom clock, waiting for 10.15 am for snack time, I felt so eager to open my lunch box and find all the delicious healthy snacks. My dad used to pack biscuit crackers and all-time favourite The Laughing Cow cheese. The fact of the matter is that young children have smaller stomachs than adults, so they need to eat small quantities of food every few hours to keep their energy levels up and get the right amount of nutrients.
