At MBNS, we believe the "whole child" is nurtured. Children are encouraged to show the full range of their emotions, as well as fully express themselves creatively, cognitively and physically.

MBNS is a community that endeavors to support and nurture the growth of adult family members and children, at home and at school, offering a rich school environment for both adults and children complemented by ongoing adult education and support groups.
