Welcome to Bannockburn Nursery School, a Bethesda tradition for over 60 years.
Welcome to Bannockburn Nursery School
Since 1950 Bannockburn Nursery School has been a leader in quality preschool education in Bethesda, Maryland. This community-based school emphasizes skill-building in a play setting. As a cooperative education program, our parents contribute by aiding the professional staff in an interactive and mutually-fulfilling environment. Children benefit from the assurance of family while growing and learning. And parents gain valuable insight into their children’s educational and sociological growth.
Students and parents have cultivated lifelong friendships at BNS. Families are united as a part of this cherished school, each sharing in the mission to educate and support each child. The student body reflects the cultural diversity of the area.
BNS is housed in the Bannockburn Community Clubhouse, not far from the intersection of MacArthur Boulevard and Goldsboro Road. There are two playgrounds with equipment, along with large, open, green and asphalt spaces outdoors. Inside, the well proportioned classrooms generously lend their tactile supplies of books and blocks and costumes and art supplies to inspire the budding talents of tomorrow. The classrooms are joined by two common areas, a kitchen, and two bathrooms. The administrative office is open and accessible during schooltime.
This small-town community preschool is an unfolding treasure for students and their families, an oasis that ceases to lose its luster long after the toddler days are gone.
