work hard and dream big
Cygnet Preparatory School is an independent school established in 1968, offering children a progressive and exceptional education from the age of two to Grade 3. The boys and girls are given personal attention by the staff, who are all committed to the enrichment and development of each pupil in their care.
The Nursery, Pre-primary and Junior Primary provides individualised attention and outstanding teaching that results in excellence in all elements of learning. Every learner’s intellectual, artistic, physical, moral and social growth needs are developed in a safe, stimulating environment, which is characterised by balance, tolerance and an appreciation of every child as an individual.
Cygnet’s vision is to be the independent school of choice in the Westville community. We aim to meet the developmental needs of every child in a safe, caring and family orientated environment. Cygnet is a place where exceptional education becomes a family experience. Our children are enriched by a professional and insightful staff who offer support and guidance to parents as the primary educators of their children.
Cygnet pupils are guided, nurtured and stimulated in ways that grow self-esteem, empathy and respect for others and a sense of responsibility in the wider environment. Cygnet pupils are educated to develop the knowledge, skills and values that should enable them to be participating, productive and caring citizens of the future. We strive to produce children with integrity and servant leadership who understand that accountability and choices are their responsibility. To fulfil its vision of producing life-long learners who are contributing members of society, Cygnet holds dear the core values of honesty, respect, compassion, self-discipline and perseverance.
