The Boorhaanol Vision and Mission

Our Motto: "Preparing your child for school, life and Madrassah"

The Boorhaanol nursery and pre-primary aims to prepare all children in their care holistically. We nurture, educate and teach knowledge, skills, attitudes and values to children from 18 months to 6 years of age. Incorporating their race, culture and religion and ensuring that they are school ready in all spheres of development. These spheres includes: physical development, intellectual/cognitive development, language development, social development, emotional development and spiritual development (based on Islam).

We will expose the learners left in our care to all facets of life, including practical and environmental issues. We will introduce them and expose them to a variety of scenarios both concrete and abstract.

We will ensure that all this is achieved in a fun, loving, safe, secure and playful manner.


The Boorhaanol School is a project of the Boorhaanol Islam Movement.
It was established in 1970 with the objective of preparing children for school, life and madrassah.The main educational objective is to develop the child in totality (holistically), being the social, cultural, intellectual, spiritual, physical, and emotional development of the child. Such total development of the child does not take place in a cultural vacuum; hence the cultural base of the School is ISLAM.

The pre-school is registered with the Department of Social Welfare as well as the Western Cape Education Department.

Apart from an offering excellent pre-school service, we also have a fully functional primary school aftercare facility that includes a nutritious meal to the aftercare learners, a full Madrassah programme, 4 days of the week and daily, if time allows a homework period. We also offer specialised life skills programme to our primary school aftercare learners on a Friday.

We offer a full developmental early learning programme by using an integrated combined learning system consisting of educational theories of Piaget, Montessori, the National Curriculum Framework of South Africa as well as the CAPS system of the Western Cape Education Department.

The best of the educational theories are selected and used to design our own personalised educational system incorporating the deen of ISLAM. Our key focus is the outcomes. I.e. ensuring your child has gained all the emerging skills for reading, writing and math for secular school. At the same time ensuring we have developed their psyche to cope with the social and emotional stresses of secular school as well as developing their faith to ensure spiritual and cultural awareness.
