Ellwanger Barry Nursery School
Where Families Grow
EBNS is a parent-run cooperative nursery school and kindergarten. Our Waldorf-style program is centered on daily immersion into the natural world around us. Led by longtime educator, Katie Banta, children are taught through a sense of curiosity and wonder at the world around us. The cooperative structure of the school means that all parents of enrolled students share classroom assistant responsibilities and administrative work equally. This creates a close-knit community that is united in its mission to bring the best early-educational experience possible to EBNS children!
We believe that children thrive in an environment which values their own uniqueness, while providing support and opportunities to grow emotionally, socially and creatively. It is our mission to create a safe, loving educational community focused on celebrating the child's natural sense of wonder and curiosity.
