Admissions Process

A simple path to joining us at York Steiner School

Birth to Three Years

If your child is under three and you would like to join a Gentle Beginnings or Parent and Toddler Group, please contact us – or just ask at the school office.

Early Years and Main School

The first step on the path to Nursery, Kindergarten and the Main School  is to visit us for an Enquirers Morning.  After this, should you feel that Steiner education is right for your family, there is a simple process to follow.

There is usually a discussion with the teacher appropriate for the class your child would enter. This will also be an opportunity to ask further questions, should you have any. The purpose of interview is not to test, but rather to ensure that the choice is right for both sides.

We will require a short biography of your child and if your child is already in school we will ask for school reports. Older children will be asked to spend time in the classroom before a final decision is made.
