We believe good nutrition plays an important role in helping your child achieve his/her greatest potential. Studies have shown that snacks and lunches high in nutritional value help children to remain calm and focused; and this in turn, enhances learning. This is why The Dalton School provides a nutritious, well balanced lunch program that is included with our school fees. The program is provided to our students by Real Food for Real Kids.

Parents are encouraged to provide their children with two nutritious, nut-free snacks per day.

Before School Care
Before school care is provided free of charge to parents that require it. The Dalton School also provides a wide range of After School Programs and Camps.


Uniforms are purchased through Uniform Basics and PE t-shirts/sweatshirts are available for purchase through the school store, The Owl's Nest.
