You & Me Toddler Group starting up!

We are so pleased to announce our winter You and Me Toddler Program at Manhattan Beach Nursery School!  Toddler Group is a lovely opportunity for walking toddlers and their loved adult to explore our dynamic school in the company of other toddlers and our experienced teacher Kate.  Kate will have age-appropriate fine and gross motor activities for the children to explore at their own pace and will be available to help support social growth amongst peers.  

Toddler Group will run 8 Fridays from 10:30-noon.  Tuition is $224.  We want all of our programs to be accessible to all regardless of financial circumstances, so please let our director Carol know if you need to work out an alternate arrangement.  Please see dates below:

January 10th, January 17th, January 24th, January 31st, February 7, February 14th, February 21st, February 28th

If you are interested in enrolling, please print, fill out, and submit a Membership Application along with the $45 processing fee and class tuition to MBNS (1520 Nelson Ave, Manhattan Beach 90266).   

2019 Holiday Pop-Up Shop and Makers’ Faire, continues through 11/24, Sunday evening.

Our Holiday Pop-Up Shop and Makers’ Faire will continue for one week online. Again, this is a great opportunity to get some holiday shopping done *and* support your school, with partial proceeds going to MBNS. Sale will end on Sunday, November 24, 2019, at 6pm. (Websites may not represent all that is available for purchase; for most complete information, contact vendors.)

Thank you for considering supporting our school! Each of our fundraisers helps keeps our school beautiful and functional, our wonderful teachers compensated, and supports our never-ending need for more rainbow tape, paint, and paper.
