What We Stand For

Welcome, and thank you for visiting our website. DK Schoolhouse was founded in 2012 with the purpose of improving the quality of early childhood education in Cambodia. Our goal is to provide a tailor-made learning experience so that:

“Each child who comes through our doors joins a community of children, families and teachers engaged in the joy, work and wonder of childhood."

Through out the years, we have worked to develop learning programs best suited to Cambodian children, and children growing up in Cambodia. We incorporate many culturally appropriate aspects into our internationally qualified curriculum.

Our goal is to provide an enriching early childhood education, and we ensure each child's needs are being met through our 5 main learning aspects:

Character Development

What children learn about character in the early childhood classroom shapes their character for the rest of their lives. From preschool through primary, our children are given the tools to foster important social skills. We help each child to build resiliency, learn compassion, identify with the feelings of others and show concern for the world around them.

Community Focus

Establishing a strong home-school community helps your child get the most out of his/her day at school. Our team works closely with parents to ensure they are an active part of the learning experience. We have a deep respect for Cambodian culture & give children an awareness of the local community & customs. By volunteering for school events, attending workshops and keeping in touch via school communication platforms, parents can keep track of, and be involved in their child's learning during the school year.

Critical Thinking and Problem Solving

At our schoolhouse we provide children with an assortment of materials, which promote problem solving skills. Hands-on activities introduce children to foundational concepts of measurement, number representation, shapes and quantities. Tactile activities are used to reinforce math concepts introduced throughout study period.

Communication and Literacy

We encourage children to ask questions and express themselves verbally. Children are supported in vocabulary building and foundation writing through daily class discussion and guided drawing periods. Class discussions help children learn to listen to others and articulate their own thoughts and feelings. Our library provides children with plenty of opportunities to explore, develop a personal interest in books and uncover an early love for reading.

How to Read Vs. How to Understand

From preschool to primary we have an excellent range of thoughtfully selected, age appropriate books..

The real key is ensuring children understand what they are reading. In other words, we don't just teach children “how to read" but teach children how to understand what they are reading.

One of the main reasons children develop a distaste for reading or don't like to read is because they've gone past words and phrases they do not understand. Teaching children to sound out words is necessary, but ignoring whether or not they understand the meaning of words is a common mistake. Telling children to 'guess' or figure out words they're unsure of by looking at context is another way children develop a distaste for reading. Telling children to skip over parts they don't understand is some of the worst advice one can tell a young reader, and is liable to result in a child who eventually doesn't like to read at all.

When we work with our students, we advance and preserve their understanding without interrupting their enthusiasm.

Whether pre-kindergarten or primary, our line up of reading materials is organized in the correct gradient that steadily increases vocabulary and literacy, while simultaneously keeping and building children's interest in reading and books. The end result is students with curious minds who love to read!
