Welcome to Broadacres Academy

Welcome to Broadacres Academy

If you are looking for a unique educational experience, where children learn naturally, then welcome to Broadacres Academy.

Broadacres Academy is the new chapter in the life of a school that’s been in our community for the past 38 years. The school was founded in 1982 as Broadacres Farm Nursery School.

In January 2016, the school was taken over by two visionary educationalists, Dylan Cavanagh and André de Coning.  Both are lifelong learners and promoters of education change.

Dylan and André are experienced educators and leaders. They bring with them a strong ethos and culture of visionary educational leadership.

In 2017 a dynamic partnership with Skye Education was formed. Skye Education is our investment and development partner and they are committed to building an exceptional education facility at Broadacres.

The new development is based on and aligned to the Broadacres Academy educational philosophy of learning naturally.

Natural learning is facilitated through delivering the curriculum in a constructivist way.

The design of the new facilities focuses on movable learning spaces, outdoor learning spaces and communal learning areas.

Together, the delivery of the curriculum and the design of the facilities facilitate and complement the nurturing of individual learning. This will ensure that children are always engaged, and never lose their natural love of learning.

An exciting future

The Academy currently includes a Preschool (9 months to 5-year-olds), and a Preparatory School (Grade 0 – Grade 5, with Grade 6 classes opening in 2121).

We pride ourselves in delivering a 21st century education where children can follow their own educational journey and continue to love learning. This is what we believe every child is born to do.

A private education in a unique and progressive environment. What more could you ask for your child?

grounded in community values and focused on the natural development of each child’s potential.
