The Geelong College offers excellent start in learning and life

The Geelong College Junior School at Campbell House offers excellence in learning through a Reggio Emilia inspiredprogram. Chinese and French language classes are offered from Early Learning, and art, music and physical
education classes with specialist teachers compliment inquiry-based numeracy and literacy learning.

We also engage in regular mindfulness and yoga sessions to help develop happy, resilient and focused learners.

Next year will be an exciting year for The Geelong College with our new junior school, incorporating Early Learning and Prep to Year 3, opening its doors in term two, as well as an expanded Early Learning program.

“The state-of-the-art Junior School designed by Old Collegian and master architect John Wardle will be such an amazing place to learn,” Head of Junior School, Sondra Wood explained.

“In keeping with the Reggio Emilia principles, the environment will become a very real part of the learning process.

The classrooms are designed to cater for core subjects as well as spaces for art and music within the Year Level precincts, giving the children a place to belong each year.

“People always comment on the lovely sense of community at the Junior School and we are confident that even though the buildings will be new and much larger, this cosy, welcoming feel, that is integral to who we are, will continue and develop.

“Our Early Learning program will also expand providing flexible attendance over five days for children aged between three and five years at a similar cost to other day-care and kindergartens in the area.”

Families are encouraged to visit the centre on an Open Day or phone 5226 3156 to arrange a tour.
