Preschool Admissions Procedure

Welcome to the Preschool Admissions page of the Broadacres Academy website!

Broadacres Academy offers your family a unique private education in a wonderful farm environment.

Our Preschool, formerly known as the Broadacres Farm Nursery School, has been a well-known and established part of the community for 36 years.

The school is conveniently situated in the greater Fourways area of Johannesburg. We look forward to welcoming you, and sharing the Broadacres experience with you and your child.

The admissions procedure is set out in the steps below.


  • Visit our school for a relaxed walkabout with our head of the Preschool, Karen McDonald during term time on WEDNESDAYS  at 08:30. Experience first-hand the rural charm of our unique farm environment; or

  • Arrange a day-visit for your child at the school. Let them experience a Broadacres school day. Your child is welcome to spend a day with us to see if they enjoy the small classes and personalised individual attention of caring and committed teachers offered at Broadacres Academy; or

  • Chat with one of our Broadacres Academy Parent Ambassadors (we will gladly put you in touch).


You can

  • Download an application form here.

  • Collect an application form from the admissions office at school.

  • Mail us to request an information pack.


Your child will be offered a place upon the successful completion of your application and payment of the required fees.

We look forward to a long and happy association with you.

Preschool children are welcome to wear any practical and appropriate clothing.

There is a school t-shirt that we like to have children wear on a Friday. The school sun hat is available to wear every day and we certainly encourage this.

Preschool t-shirts and hats can be purchased from our uniform stockists,  McCullagh and Bothwell in Fourways Crossing.

Broadacres Academy follows a three-term calendar. These term dates apply to the Preschool, Prep School & Tutor Centre.

The school is closed during the  mid-term breaks as well as school holidays.

Aftercare is available to the Preschool and Preparatory School children.

The Preschool aftercare is included in the fee structure for children staying until 17h30. This includes constant structured supervision and a light snack.

Parents are responsible for their children’s transport arrangements to and from school.

There are various transport options available, and should you wish to explore these, please feel free to get information from the Admin office.

We do not allow children to be dropped off or collected by Uber transport, unless a parent or guardian is present.
