Junior Kindergarten

All JK applicants will attend a ‘JK Days’ session at Montcrest. Applicants will take part in a short morning session in both the JK classroom and outdoor learning area. Applicants will work with JK teachers, whilst engaging in carefully crafted play-based activities, designed to show school readiness. Whilst JK applicants take part in their activities, parents are invited to enjoy coffee and a short presentation about getting the best start to Early Years education at Montcrest School.

All JK sessions are held from 9:00 a.m. until 10:30 a.m. Please select a date before contacting the Admissions Office at Montcrest. All families will need to reserve a place, which is done on a first come, first served, basis.
