Our philosophy at Merryhill is to provide a variety of experiences to enhance every child’s growth and development. In doing so, we recognize the individuality and uniqueness of each child who walks through our doors. Our staff takes great measures to grow positive self-images and foster confidence in our children’s abilities and talents.

To provide the quality child care services we strive to achieve, we create appropriate activities for the educational, social, emotional and physical development of all children entrusted in our care. Our philosophy is modeled on the practices and beliefs endorsed by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC).

Childcare 6 weeks to 6 years.
At Merryhill particular care is taken when selecting staff. We look for care givers who are responsive to young children and highly motivated to help them grow and develop according to our philosophy.

When choosing teachers for each program area, we seek out qualifications and traits essential in providing quality child care, including previous child care experience, a high level of education, maturity, friendliness, patience and a nurturing heart.

Our teachers are actively involved in training seminars and are required to dedicate a percentage of their hours each year to further their education. Each member of our staff is given the opportunity to plan exciting and creative programs for our children.

For safety precautions, each teacher is certified in Pediatric First Aid and Pediatric CPR. A senior staff member is on duty at all times during the center’s hours of operation. In addition, we have a registered nurse who reports to the center on a weekly basis and remains on call for emergency situations.

A pediatric dentist, physician, social service worker, and educational consultant are also available as needed.
