Grayston Preparatory School:
Grayston Preparatory School is proudly South African and is located at the corner of North Road and Gillard Street, Sandown, Johannesburg. Originally the school was located in Sandown where the Sandton Library is now situated. The increase in enrolment numbers prompted the authorities to move the school to the existing site over thirty years ago in 1977.
Grayston Preparatory School proudly goes forward, “Holding the Hand that Holds the Future”.
Aftercare facility and Holiday Care Facility.
This convenient and well-managed facility is available to all Grayston children from Grade 000 to Grade 7 from directly after school until 17:30 Monday to Friday during the school term, and from 07:30 to 17:30 during school holidays.
Although the responsibility is on the children to do their homework at this time, homework is supervised by enthusiastic trained staff before and after co-curricular activities. The computer laboratories and media centre are available to all Aftercare children during this time.
Holiday care programmes are planned well in advance. Our learners enjoy outings to parks and zoos. Several art activities such as: making paperweights, papier-mâché’ modelling, pottery etc. are scheduled for the holiday time. The children bake from time to time and love treasure hunts.
A variety of sandwiches, fruits and fruit juices are provided for the children during the afternoon. During the holidays, children enjoy a hot meal for lunch each day, plus morning and afternoon snacks.
Child Support Centre
The Child Support Centre is an Assessment and Therapy Unit which started at Grayston in 1993. We provide a multi disciplinary assessment to any child that may be experiencing academic or emotional difficulties. In addition the Support Centre provides adult counselling for individuals, couples and families. This counselling is provided for individual issues, marital challenges, trauma, parenting techniques or family conflict.
Our team of professionals include the Educational Psychologist, Occupational Therapist, Speech, Language and Hearing Therapist and the Remedial Therapist. Working closely with Grayston staff allows us the opportunity to obtain a holistic view of the child. After the initial assessment process, if the child requires intervention, therapy is provided on the school premises.
