Want to be part of our family in 2020?

Principal's Welcome

Welcome to Bloubergrant Pre-Primary’s web page. My staff and I would like to invite you to get to know us just a little bit better by browsing through some of the information below. We consider ourselves as a family at the school and we are all passionate for what we do. Most of my staff have been part of our team for many years.  We have been providing quality education for more than three decades and each year we try to build on and extend our skills in order to continue giving excellent service to our parents and children. We believe in learning through play and provide a safe, secure and happy environment in order to do so.

We also have a very large covered sandpit area. We have a covered wrap around verandah for the children to play on, a large scooter track and many well established trees for children to play under in the hot Summer months. We also have a water play area for the summer months.(depending on current water restrictions)

Trained staff

All our staff are fully trained and regularly go on skills development courses in order to keep up to date with new teaching techniques. All staff attend compulsory first aid training every two years. Classes are equipped with an assistant teacher. The outdoor play area is divided into zones and each zone is monitored by a staff member during outdoor free play.

I am a BEd Foundation Phase student studying at Varsity College. My experience as a student-teacher at this school has been AMAZING. I have learnt so much here. The learners are happy and so loving and the staff are so welcoming and willing to help you. I leave here every day feeling extremely fulfilled and happy. I couldn’t have asked for a better experience.

Both of our children were fortunate enough to attend Bloubergrant Pre Primary School! We chose this particular school as it reminded us of the schools we attended as children, with it’s large playground and devoted teachers.  

In an age of so much technology, it’s so important for children to ‘be children’ and to learn through play. And that’s exactly what this beautiful school did for our kids.

They loved every minute of their time there and often go back for a visit and a hug! The teachers gave them the grounding they needed for Primary School and for that we are eternally grateful!

Melanie

I have been involved at Bloubergrandt Pre-Primary for 6 years, 3 years with each of my boys. My Mother In Law was actually one of the founding ladies back in the day. She has passed away but we see her photograph every morning up on the wall when we arrive at school.

This school has given my boys and I such happy memories. From the teachers to the assistants, to even the ground staff – they are all amazing. You will never find more love and compassion at a school as you do at this one. Every morning, no matter the weather, the staff are outside to greet your children with love and warmth and the biggest hug should they want it. The school has the biggest playground and both my boys were always in their element playing outside. Play is such an important aspect at the school.

I will be leaving the end of this year with a very, very heavy heart as my youngest ventures the world of Grade 1 but I cannot wait till one day when my Grandkids will be able to share the warmth and love at Bloubergrandt Pre-Primary

Bloubergrant Pre Primary School the best school ever!

Dropping your child off at school in the morning is the start of a perfect day! You and your child are greeted with open arms!

My daughter attended there 6 years ago and my boy started this year. Teachers are helpful, friendly and have a positive attitude.

By sending your child to Bloubergrant Pre Primary you guarantee your child of a solid foundation.

My daughter has been in Grade 00 at Bloubergrant Pre-Primary since the beginning of 2019. Coming from another pre-school where she has been since she was a baby, I was very worried that she will not fit in quickly and that she would take a long time to settle in. I was pleasantly surprised when she immediately took a liking to her new school and had no problems finding her feet. The teachers and after-care teachers have been wonderful and supportive and I never feel that I have to check-up on her well-being.

I have been very impressed with the level of social interaction at the school and love the fact that there is a number of events where one can meet new parents and get to know the teachers better.

I will definitely enrol her again for 2020 and look forward to another awesome year at Bloubergrant Pre-Primary.

We were at two different schools before we found Bloubergrant Pre-primary. We have been here for three years now. My kids have loved every second. The teachers are experienced and are wonderful with the children. My heart is truly at peace knowing my children are there.

 We love you guys, it’s hard to say how amazing you are in a few sentences.
