ABBEYS is an EDUCATIONAL CENTRE with two campuses, a Pre-Primary in Eastlea and a Preparatory School in Greendale in Harare. The Pre-Primary started operations in 1971 (then known as (Anne’s Day Nursery) which later changed its name to ABBEYS in 1999 when it was acquired by its current owners.
The Preparatory School opened its doors for the first Grade 1 intake in January of 2012 with only 8children (five girls and three boys), then at the Pre-Primary premises. Today there is over 140 children and counting. Migration to the current home happened during the third term of 2013. Building of the magnificent Classroom block started on the 1st of September 2015, and actual occupation of the 1st classroom happened in January of 2017.
We are registered with the Ministry of Education and we follow the national Curriculum that provides a holistic education aimed at developing each individual child emotionally, spiritually, socially, intellectually and physically. Every child is unique thus remedial educational programmes that cater for every child’s individual needs are also on offer. As a private school we are allowed to add to the programme and have added French. Chinese is still under consideration.
ABBEYS offers a well-structured holistic educational programme, with a view to the actualisation of a pupil’s potential in body mind and spirit. Care is taken to ensure that the curriculum is relevant in an ever-changing world, whilst ensuring that the formative values remain unchanged.
