From the Principal’s Office
It’s hard to believe that the holidays are behind us and a new year is just beginning! As we welcome in the new year, it is time to set new goals and resolutions. Our Links to Learning curriculum is helping us provide the opportunities to set new goals and provide your children with the best educational program possible.
We are very excited to bring your child new learning opportunities each day. Every activity that your child is involved with comes with learning goals and objectives that bring them closer to the educational excellence that sets Merryhill apart.
Our Parent Surveys will launch January 3rd – January 6th via your email. If you do not receive a parent survey by Friday, January 6th, please let us know so we can have our marketing department resend one to you. The goal of our teachers and staff at Merryhill-Laguna is to provide the best possible care and early childhood education for your child. I am proud of our teachers; they are there to nurture your children and work together as partners with you, to help your child reach their highest potential. Thank you in advance for your positive comments.
It will also soon be time to reserve your child’s spot for our upcoming 2017-2018 school year. For those children (Infants-Intermediates) that will be returning for next year, look for information on our Priority Registration beginning in February.
Have a safe and prosperous New Year!
Lisa Norris – Principal

During the holidays our school was overwhelmed with the holiday spirit that was brought on by our parents. We would like to sincerely thank all of you for your generous contributions made to our holiday celebrations, “Chips for Kids” toy drive, and to our staff. Your thoughtfulness and kindness is truly appreciated and because of your generosity, it made a difference in so many of our holiday celebrations.
“I have a Dream” PJ Party
This month many of our classes will be focusing on the wonders of winter! The children will be exploring cold winter temperatures, winter animals and their habitats, and of course, winter fun!
We will also get cozy in our pajamas on Friday, January 13th for our “I have a dream” PJ party!
Martin Luther King, Jr. Day
As a reminder, Merryhill will be closed on Monday, January 16th in observance of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day.
It will soon be time to begin planning your child’s continued preschool education for next year. Our school is currently full and we anticipate full enrollment again for next year. It will be important for you to reserve your child’s spot. For those students that will be continuing with us (Infants through Intermediates, and those that will join our Pre-K2 class), we will begin Priority Registration sometime in February. Registration during our Priority Registration time period will be at a discounted rate of $90. That is a savings of $50 off the regular returning registration fee. Registration after that time period will be $140.
Look for information coming soon!
Parent Ambassador Program
If there is one thing that parents love to do, it’s talk about their children’s successes. When friends ask you about your child’s experience at Merryhill, what type of success stories do you share? Do you mention the personal and educational discoveries that your child is making thanks to our advanced curriculum? Do you talk about the new levels of self and social confidence your child has gained thanks to our encouraging atmosphere?
Whatever the glowing reports you deliver about how your child is growing with his or her education, we couldn’t be more appreciative. In fact, we’d like to show you just how thankful we are for your endorsements. Now when you tell other parents about our school, you can become a Merryhill School Parent Ambassador!
For every new child you refer who enrolls at our school you can receive up to a full free week of tuition (based on attendance of new student) after 3 months of attendance.
Tell your friends about Merryhill-Laguna and invite them to our Open House on Saturday, January 21st from 10 am – 1 pm.
This Open House is designed for those new families interested in enrolling their children for the upcoming 2017-2018 school year.
We would love to meet your friends and their children!
