Celebrating our Founders' Vision!

On November 4, 1946, a group of influential women living in Evansville, Indiana, opened the Episcopal Nursery School in the Guild Room at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church. Evansville had experienced a boom in population from the war, and quality nursery schools were in short supply. This group of community leaders and educators had a vision for an independent school that was focused on the development of the whole child. On opening day in 1946, the school employed one teacher Esther Baumgart and had only seven students enrolled; tuition was only $22  a month!
