Happy Holidays from MBNS

We hope you are staying warm while keeping a cool head this holiday season. Need some more cheer to keep you going? 

We are offering wonderful treats for purchase as well as featured items from some of our Holiday Pop-Up Shop vendors! In order to ensure that everyone safely distances for this fundraiser, this will be a “drive-up” event only (no walk-ups, please!). Please pop your trunk and your box/parcel will be placed inside for you to open when you arrive home.

We’re all doing our part to keep everyone safe and we thank you for doing yours!

Pick ups will take place this Sunday from 10:30am-2:30pm.

Delivery option is available as well! Contactless deliveries will be made next Sunday between 2:30pm-4pm for households South of Artesia or Sunday 10:30am-12:30pm if your household is North of MBNS!

All payments can be sent via Venmo to @manhattanbeachnurseryschool

For questions, please contact Delayna at fundraising@mbns.education or Carol at director@mbns.education


THANK YOU EVERYONE! Our 2020 Holiday Pop-Up fundraiser has come to a close.

We thank you for participating and making this wonderful event happen. A special thank you goes out to Susan Odle (one of our amazing alumni herself)  for bringing this idea to the community a few years ago! With this, our 3rd successful year, we are looking forward more in the years to come.

A big thank you to all of you our Alumni and currently enrolled families that shared their business and one-of-a-kind products with us. Their time and monetary donations will greatly support the programs that our school offers our community.

Thank you to Mayumi (our Publicity Chair) for marketing our newsletters and crafting enticing posts on social media. Thank you Carol (our Director) for vendor logistics and content. Also, thank you Delayna (our Fundraising Chair) for managing the website and assisting with back-end logistics.

Thank you all for your participation! Here’s to a bright future at MBNS!


Welcome to MBNS

FALL 2020
We are still here. Creating, collaborating, connecting. Though it looks a bit different from before, it’s still carried by the ideals that our school holds dear. That each child is supported as they grow and develop in a loving and safe environment (wherever that may be!).

Right now we are focusing on feeding that growth through online connections, bi-weekly fun (and zero waste!) “MIXIT” activity boxes, our curriculum lending library, and our physically safe/distant blanket visits.

Though we hope to return to our lovely campus soon, we are committed to waiting until it is safe to do so. Please check regularly for updates.



At MBNS the “whole child” is nurtured. Children are encouraged to show the full range of their emotions, just as they are encouraged to fully express themselves creatively, cognitively, and physically. Simply, children learn best when they are allowed freedom to control and explore their own environment. Each child’s individuality is respected.
