The Mount’s Early Years setting provides the highest standards of learning and care of girls from three to five years of age.

Children flourish in an inspiring and happy environment where having fun and learning go hand in hand.

Our experienced Early Years Team and Junior School staff work to ensure that all children feel secure and valued as they settle into School. Pupils are encouraged to develop independence and reach their potential through enjoyable activities. We recognise that each child is unique. Our activities are planned in response to observing the children’s needs and interests. This highly individualised approach to teaching enables each child to develop at their own pace. By drawing out each child’s natural curiosity and basing our activities on their enthusiasms and interests, we inspire excitement for learning.


Children can join The Mount from age 3 in our Pre-School Class. 

Children in Early Years benefit from tailored teaching as they develop and begin their learning journey. However, at The Mount Junior School we champion ‘vertical learning’ meaning children are provided with opportunities to work with pupils across the year groups. This begins with the Pre-School and Early Years Class. Through a variety of activities and teamwork we provide opportunities for children of different ages to learn and socialise together. This mixed age approach strengthens the strong caring ethos at the School’s heart, boosting warm, positive and supportive relationships within the School community.
