The Age of Discovery
Experience the magic of our nurturing preschool learning community where curiosity and a love of learning bloom.
Our Preschool at Broadacres Academy welcomes children from the age of 6 months up to 5 years. We foster an exceptional learning environment that encourages exploration and natural, age-appropriate development. Our team of passionate and dedicated teachers’ primary aim is to ensure that each child is loved, happy and thriving in a relaxed learning environment.
Our little ones flourish in our community where parents and school become family. Open communication and giving and receiving consistent feedback help to form strong relationships with all our parents.
Just like a loving home, the Preschool learning community is a safe, nurturing, happy space for each child who attends our beautiful school. We pride ourselves in the love that children experience when they are in our care.
Broadacres Academy is enriched with character, space, love, and an all over magical feeling.
Our campus exudes the welcoming atmosphere and essence of the original farm school that served the community for 35 years. The children absolutely love going for farm walks, learning about our environment, and feeding our farm animals.
At Broadacres Academy Preschool, our children are given every opportunity to learn through exploration and discovery. They are guided in diverse daily activities by their experienced and caring teachers. We believe that self-directed learning encourages children to become lifelong learners who never lose their natural love of learning.
You’ll hear happy chatter and fun emanating from our preschool throughout the day as our little ones enjoy messy play, exploring different textures, art activities, music and dance, puzzles, stories, outdoor gross motor activities, and so much more.
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.

The Broadacres Academy Preschool follows the ISASA guidelines to the Early Childhood Development (ECD) curriculum. This ensures that the correct developmental milestones are reached. In Grade 000 and 00, we expand on the ECD Curriculum by including modules from the Key to Learning programme. In the 4 and 5-year-old classes, Logic, Story Grammar, Maths and Visual Spatial modules form part of the Preschool Curriculum.
Broadacres Academy Nursery and Preschool promotes the development of Arts and Culture in our children. They love performing on stage and we give them every opportunity to do so.
There is always time for creative activity. The children love painting, drawing, singing, dancing and playing instruments. We expose the children to the Colourstrings Music Programme.
These activities create a diverse, holistic curriculum in which all aspects of the child are developed.

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 17h00 each day. Closing time is at 17:00 with gates closing at 17:30. There is a half-day option until 15:30. It includes a cooked lunch, constant structured supervision and a light afternoon snack.

We do not allow students to be dropped off or collected by Uber transport, unless a parent or guardian is present.
Children learn through play and physical activity. Outdoor and play activities are emphasised because of their direct link between gross and fine motor skill development in growing children. Each child will get one half an hour Buzzi Body session per week, which is included in the fees. Additional extra murals are offered at an additional cost.
