The Age of Wonder

Explore the journey that will support your child as they develop their natural love of learning in the Preparatory School.

Bubbly conversations and joyful learning can be heard from our secure Junior Prep learning spaces. We create opportunities for the children to immerse themselves in exploratory learning during Grade 0 – 3. This forms the foundation of each child’s happy journey through the Prep School at Broadacres Academy. With our staff, your child will receive an excellent educational grounding in this critical, building-block stage of their schooling.

Children in the Junior Prep School embark on a sense-making process, becoming actively involved in their learning journey by:

  • asking questions
  • learning through experience
  • problem-solving
  • exploring
  • thinking critically

Learning is not limited to the classroom. Grounded by our community values of kindness, integrity, empathy, courtesy, love for the environment and compassion for others, our children flourish in their purpose-built learning spaces. The beauty of our campus makes outdoor learning in nature possible, which enables open-mindedness and a love for our planet.

We believe that learning is a journey of exploration,

A collaboration between learner and teacher,
Inspired by curiosity,

Guided by professional insight and commitment,

Grounded in community values,

And focused on the natural development of each child’s potential.

Enrich their school day with fun.

Nurture a happy, confident child.

Develop a natural love of learning.

Join our campus head for a weekly walkabout of our Junior Prep school. Experience for yourself the joy, wonder and high energy as you explore beautiful, highly-resourced classrooms filled with natural light and organic materials.

At Our Little Village, we’ve created a haven where children belong, a home away from home to provide the peace of mind parents need.

Our in-house service has its own experienced staff, delightful, safe settings and are packed with age-appropriate, fun-filled activities that focus on the social development of the children in our care. This service beautifully compliments the Broadacres ethos of kindness and care, and is an extension of the learning that occurs during the academic day.

We pride ourselves on our exceptional safety standards, wonderfully prepared meals during our clubs and a close and protective bond with the children.

Aftercare is available to the Preparatory School children at an additional cost (as per the fee schedule), and runs until 17h30 each day. It includes a cooked lunch, constant structured supervision and a light afternoon snack. Note that there is no aftercare on the days that we break up for half-term and end of term.

Holiday Care is run internally by Our Little Village in all our school holidays, with minimal closure times.
