When Dawn was younger, she attended a kindergarten, where she met her friends {{si|Kenny}} and [[Leona]]. She also knew {{an|Barry}} and [[Noelle]] from before leaving [[Twinleaf Town]], but it is unclear how and when Dawn first met them.
In ''[[DP161|Yes in Dee Dee, It's Dawn!]]'', Dawn revealed the story behind her nickname, '''Dee Dee''' (Japanese: '''ピカリ''' ''Pikari''). She explained that she, Kenny, and Leona had been selected as the week's Pokémon caretakers at their kindergarten, and were responsible for looking after the school's pets, {{p|Plusle}} and {{p|Minun}}. While Kenny and Leona cleaned down the pen, Dawn hugged the two {{type|Electric}} {{OBP|Pokémon|species}} tightly and received an electric shock as a result. This caused Dawn's hair to fizz out and sparkle, earning her the nickname "Diamond Dandruff" or "Dee Dee" for short. From then on, many of her classmates called Dawn by this embarrassing nickname. This led to Dawn developing a fear of Plusle and Minun.
