Junior School

Prep to Year 4

Shaping new attitudes to learning

Children in Haileybury's Junior Schools get the best of everything from the outset: the best teachers, resources, facilities and curriculum. Through the program, Haileybury stimulates children to reach their potential. Boys and girls learn how to care, to listen, to take turns and to concentrate. They are encouraged to make decisions, become self-sufficient, answer questions, solve problems and work independently.

Literacy and Numeracy – the foundation stones of all learning at one of the top primary schools in Melbourne, Haileybury – mark the beginning of a total education that begins in Prep and continues through to Junior School. Delivery is through the explicit instruction method and results reflect that Haileybury students develop faster than their peers. Progress in these areas is carefully and objectively monitored. At Haileybury's private primary school in Melbourne, with the help of our specialist teachers, children enjoy music, visual arts, library, physical education, drama and movement, swimming, perceptual motor programs, information and communications technologies, a language awareness and Language Other Than English program.

A strong Pastoral Care program ensures that children are nurtured at every stage and develop their own sense of personal worth.
