Meet the Teachers at Kiaat Ridge Pre-Primary 

Margie Brooks

Hi, my name is Margie Brooks and I’ve been in the teaching profession for 30 years.  My career started in Cape Town 30 years ago and has continued to date here in the Lowveld.  Teaching has always been my passion, but besides this, my love for and amazement for little ones is an indescribable experience. As much as you can educate children, in turn you too can learn a lot from them as well and that’s what makes it such a rewardingly humble experience.

I have completed both CAPS (Curriculum and Assessment Policy Statement) training which I’ve tackled twice and completed internal training programmes too. I am currently teaching at Kiaat Ridge Pre-Primary, which commenced in 2010 and am teaching the Gr RR and Gr R groups.  My aim is to develop their abilities holistically and encourage them so as to fulfil their utmost potential and accomplish their milestones in their preschool development.


We at Kiaat consist of an energetic, vibrant, passionate and hardworking team. We place the emotional, mental and physical interests of our learners as first priority each and every day.  I therefore affirm that Kiaat Ridge Pre-Primary is an entrusted and competent learning and development school institution.


To me it is a great privilege and honour to be a part of our Kiaat family and just so would be ecstatic to have your little one as a part of our family.

Shari du Preez

Hi, my name is Shari du Preez and I have been working with children actively for the last 6 years. I am currently working with the 1 – 4 year olds.  My passion for children started at a very early stage in my life. I enjoy every aspect of teaching. I completed 2 years at Educare Basic Preschool Teaching and received my certificates.  I had my own preschool for 2 years.

I have been working at Kiaat Ridge Pre-Primary for over a year.  We have a great team working here, making sure each child receives the very best of what we have to offer.  Here your child is seen as an individual, with the possibility to become anything and anyone.  I am truly blessed to be a part of this amazing team.
