School Calendar & Events

drawn by a Bethesda Student

The Spring Fair is an annual tradtion
that all students look forward to.
Games, food, prizes, live performances,
and a tag sale are just some of the
activities that help raise money
for scholarships to the school.


Bethesda Nursery School's Summer Program is designed to take advantage of the naturally relaxed pace of summer. Kids have fun while learning in our spacious playground, with its perfect combination of shaded and sunny areas. Easels, bikes, slip‘n’ slide and sprinklers and hoses are frequent fun offerings! We seize this opportunity to explore our messiest experiences and activities are planned to stimulate creativity within independent and group play. When children and teachers are happy to be in school, we know we are on the right course. 

***Bethesda's Summer Program is full as of March 25, 2021. More spots may become available if the State's guidelines on class sizes change. If you would like to be added to the wait-list, please contact our Director. Thanks for all of the enthusiastic interest!***
