Our History

Bokmakierie Pre-Primary School, forms part of the network of GDE nursery schools south of Johannesburg. Our school is in Mondeor, in a serene part of the suburb adjacent to a nature reserve.

The School opened on 16 October 1978 as Alan Manor Nursery School.  It was a cold and wet morning and 120 children arrived. We had 6 staff members, 1 secretary and 2 helpers.

At the inaugurating of the school in 1980 the name officially changed to a Bokmakierie.  The decision on the name "Bokmakierie" was due to the Bokmakierie birds in the area.

1 May 1995 saw the start of 2 playgroups as well as aftercare facilities with a variety of additional activities available.

During the year 1999 we started our baby section with great success.

As from January 2001 Bokmakierie privatised as a section 21 Company.  Bokmakierie still functions according to GDE Rules although we don’t receive any financial support from the GDE.

We currently have 105 children in the school ranging between the ages 6 months to 6 years of age.

Happy, healthy children perform with confidence!

All our staff members strive for the best quality education, discipline and overall development of a child.

The best Pre School in the south area

Bokmakierie produces the best kids graduates, it doesn’t matter which primary school they go to, they just continue to be the most vibrant, energetic and genius littles ones. I have been a parent at the school for more than 6years now. My 9 year old is the product of Bokmakierie and my two little ones are still in Bokmakierie. It’s a great school, a little heaven for our little ones..👌🏼👌🏼

The transport service is also superb!! Great job sister Nobuhle, teacher Drennie and the rest of your team.

Mrs Pretorius, your efforts in restoring Bokmakierie pre primary school and making it a better place for our kids are noted and appreciated, thank you.

Great school

My son started at Bokmakierie in 2017 then went to primary until today he still talks about his teachers. I have always been sceptical on my kids starting school early in 2018 l took my 2year old daughter it was such a smooth transition. The love the teachers have for the kids is the best. The school is clean and safe
