Every year, 450 children are welcomed as "honored guests" into Bing's light-filled classrooms that open wide to a sprawling terrain of hills, rabbit hutches, fruit trees, and play structures.
At Bing, children are encouraged and empowered to take learning into their own hands—literally. Blocks, paint, sand, water, and clay are not only vehicles of their unbridled imaginations, but also tools through which they shape and understand their worlds.
Children, ages two to five years, are enrolled in the school. The school operates on the Stanford academic calendar and also offers a 7-week summer session. Children are enrolled for two or three half day morning or afternoon sessions of 3-1/2 hours for the nursery school program or 2-1/2 hours for the two-year-old program. Extended Care is also available for the Nursery School Programs Only (Early and Lunch care for the morning programs, and Late care for the afternoon programs). Bing Nursery School offers a needs-based scholarship program available to all families after they are accepted into the program, as well as a discounted tuition rate for Stanford affiliated families. The school employs a teaching staff of 40 early childhood educators.
