Early Years Funding.

The Mount School York is a registered provider of the Early Years Funding for which all 3 and 4 year olds are eligible. Please contact Jane Wilson in the Admissions Office to find out more about the scheme.


A deposit of £100 is required to confirm the acceptance of a place. This is simply a deposit, not an extra fee and it will be returned to the parents when the child leaves Pre-School. Should the child transfer to Reception, the £100 will not be returned and will become the non-refundable Acceptance Fee of a place in Junior School. Those children who are joining Reception from Pre-School will be given priority for the choice of Pre-School sessions available

On the form, you will be able to indicate the sessions you would like for your child, we will try our best to accommodate these; however, they are all subject to availability.  Once the form and registration fee have been received, a member of our admissions team will get in touch to discuss your child’s needs and to arrange a taster session for them in the Pre-School.
