Early Childhood Programs

Imagine a preschool that nurtures your child’s curiosity

A preschool where children, with teachers as their guides, explore the world around them, share experiences, learn and play together. An environment that embraces a Montessori methodology, within the framework of the respected International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme. These are the Early Childhood Programs at Glenlyon Norfolk School.
Glenlyon Norfolk School is pleased to be offering two early childhood programs at our Beach Drive Campus: our First Steps half-day program for three-year-olds and our full-day Junior Kindergarten for four-year-olds.

What Makes Our Program Special?

  1. Our teachers introduce and implement learning within the framework of the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme. 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, 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 by exploring the outdoors.
  5. Our in-class learning takes place in new, purpose-built classrooms, specifically designed to enhance the experience of our youngest students.
  6. Our students get to learn and play at the only oceanfront Junior School in Canada.
