Greenacres Pre-Primary School


Started in 1992 by Marelize de Rooy, Greenacres is privately owned, administered and organised using the Barkly House philosophy. Based on Christian principles, we seek to build up trust and mutual respect between staff, children, parents and the community. We are registered with the Department of Education and compliant with Department of Social Development requirements as a private, fee paying day school / educare centre, dependent for its continuity on parental fees and donations.

The Barkly House belief is that during the first 2 years of a baby's life, the baby is reliant on instinct, but thereafter it is up to the parents and teachers to encourage the natural love of learning inherent in every child from birth. We have a diverse range of daily activities - morning special time, news time, music & movement, art, puzzle building and games. Midmorning snack time is followed by free play and story time. School finishes at 12.30pm and those staying for aftercare have a full hearty cooked meal and a nap (if needed).

Every term we are privileged to get a visit from an important community member, for example:
- Firemen, in their fire engine, demonstrate the hoses and siren.
- Policemen arrive with 'Captain Crime Stop' whom the kids adore.
Trips to local small holdings are met with great excitement as we love to learn about the various farm animals. Grade Rs are taken to the various primary schools in the valley for their 'open days'.

We invite people to visit us with interesting topics and entertainment and no longer take our children off the property on outings.

Greenacres traditionally has 7 groups with a maximum capacity of 18 children per class, with the exception of our Twinkle Star Class Little Acre Group which has a maximum of 10 children.

At times during the day the children will interact with their seniors and their juniors. This promotes care and consideration for each other.
