A MARIST BROTHERS LINMEYER PRE-SCHOOL EXPERIENCE
Girls and boys between the ages of 4 and 6 years learn and play within a happy, caring and supportive environment.
Our little ones are guided by our Marist Characteristics, namely, Family Spirit, Love of Work, In the Way of Mary, Presence and Simplicity.
Our beliefs are all based on a Catholic ethos while our teaching principles remain firmly rooted in the Marist traditions. We warmly welcome students of all faiths and denominations.
Within the four pillars: Academics, Religion, Sport and Culture, we offer an exciting broad-based educational programme.
Marist Brothers Linmeyer is committed to ensuring that every Preschooler is cognitively, socially and emotionally prepared for Grade 1.
A DAY IN THE LIFE OF A PRESCHOOLER
Find out what happens during a typical day of a Marist Brothers Linmeyer Preschooler!
It is our hope that each girl and boy uses their curiosity and creativity to express views and feelings with confidence. Our focus will always be to create and develop a lifelong love of learning.
The staff are amazing, very friendly and wonderful with the children. I am so proud of what we as a Pre-School achieve every single year.
Head of Department - Foundation Phase
“The extra-curricular activities offered at the Pre-School are well balanced, it offers a good variety for boys and girls. This includes ballet, Clamber Club, gymnastics, pottery, cricket, karate, soccer and music. There are also excellent facilities with qualified personnel overseeing the different activities.”
Mrs Ganda, parent
“Marist Brothers Linmeyer Pre-School truly encompasses Catholic family values helping children fulfill their divine potential. They are also prepare them for life by giving the children tools they need to keep on learning throughout the many experiences that will come to them. This School enables students to recognise religion as an important expression of human experience. The School works together with students and parents to ensure well-rounded, spiritually enriched children.

Marist Brothers Linmeyer places a marked emphasis on social responsibility.
We believe that it should be every student’s goal to make a difference in the lives of those less fortunate.
Through giving, our students become mindful of other people’s circumstances and start to develop a willing nature – eager to assist where they can.
Each grade across the Primary School selects an Outreach Project for the year. The Pre-School students collect goodies to make up hampers. These are given to each Pre-School Support Staff member as a way of acknowledging them for all that they do.
Our School is also supportive of seasonal and Mini Council requests as well as community needs. We are always thankful to our Marist families who give so willingly and so generously.
These paid extras take place at the end of each School day
Sport teaches students to work as a team, improves social skills and boosts self-confidence. It also reduces stress, enhances mood and builds healthy bodies and minds.
The Pre-School extra murals are “paid” extra murals and do not form part of the School curriculum. All Pre-School extra-curricular activities take place on the School property.
Pamphlets are available from the Pre-School Reception.
