Junior Kindergarten

Imagine a Junior Kindergarten that nurtures children’s curiosity.

A full-time 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. This is the Junior Kindergarten at Glenlyon Norfolk School.

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 through exploring outdoors.
  5. Our in-class learning takes places 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.
