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 36 years. The school was founded in 1982 as Broadacres Farm Nursery School.

Over the years, the school has maintained a high standard as the nursery school of choice in the area.

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.

The existing preschool, with its rural charm and unique farm environment, remains central to the ethos of the Broadacres Academy brand.

An exciting future

In addition to the thriving preschool, Broadacres Academy has grown, and now offers the community a fully fledged Junior Preparatory School with classes from Grade 0 – Grade 3. The Senior Preparatory School is growing organically, and we are proud to have our first Grade 4 class starting in 2019.

Exciting developments are taking place and we have broken ground on a new chapter in the school’s history. Phase one of our development plan for the new school facilities has been completed, and we will take occupation of our new Admin Block and Prep School in January 2019!

The Academy currently includes a Preschool (crèche to 5-year-olds), a Preparatory School (Grade 0 – Grade 4) and a Tutor Centre for registered homeschoolers (Grade 7 – Grade 12).

From January 2019, our new Grade 4  classes will be open.  Learn more about the admissions process here.

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?

What we Believe

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.
