Junior Kindergarten

Imagine a Junior Kindergarten that nurtures children’s curiosity.

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

What Makes the GNS Junior Kindergarten Exceptional?

  1. Our teachers introduce and implement learning within the framework of the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Program; we are the only school in Victoria to offer this enriched, inquiry-based program.
  2. We have an 8:1 student to teacher ratio in our JK classrooms.
  3. 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.
  4. Every Thursday—rain or shine— Nature School provides our children with the opportunity to learn through exploring outdoors.
  5. In September, students will get to enjoy their new classrooms in the brand new Junior Kindergarten/Kindergarten complex.
  6. Our students get to learn and play at the only oceanfront Junior School in Canada.
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 an assessment, helps to provide the school and parents with the information upon which to make the best decision for each child regarding readiness and fit.
