Imagine a Junior Kindergarten program that nurtures children’s curiosity. A program where children, with teachers as their guides, explore the world around them, share experiences, work and play together. A program that embraces a Montessori methodology, within the framework of the respected International Baccalaureate Primary Years Program. This is the Junior Kindergarten Program at Glenlyon Norfolk School.

Classes are no larger than 16 students with a teacher and an assistant. Physical Education, French, Mandarin, Music, Art and Library teachers support the work of the classroom teachers, providing specialist instruction and enrichment. Children develop early literacy and numeracy skills and have access to a fully equipped gymnasium, art room, music room and an extensive primary library. Nature School on Thursdays provides children with the opportunity to learn through playing outside.

Children who are four years of age by December of their enrolment year are eligible to attend either the morning session or for a full day. The readiness of each individual child does vary and it is the well-being of each child that is most important to us. An interview with the child and parents with the Junior School Principal or Director of Admissions, followed by a classroom visit, helps to provide the school and parents with the information upon which to make the best decision for each child regarding readiness and fit.

We invite you to fill out an application form and/or call to arrange an appointment to tour the school and ask questions, as you explore educational opportunities and options for your child.
