From the Principal’s Offic
Nothing is more important to us, as parents and educators, than our children. This past year has been a combination of education, friendships, and the continued building of a firm foundation for each and every child as we guide them through the future and into adulthood. It is not possible to put a price on the future or an excellent education. At Merryhill, we strive to offer the very best by providing a quality early childhood education in an atmosphere of genuine caring and professionalism.
As this school year comes to an end, we thank each of you for your tremendous support that you have given us so we may continue to build on our reputation as the “preschool of choice” in our community. Thanks for a great year and we look forward to many more with you and your family!
And now, with the new school year right around the corner, we are looking forward to many fun and enriching learning experiences for your child. Please make sure that you have checked out your new school year packet for all the details on your child’s link to the next level of learning!
We would like to wish all of our graduating students a fond farewell as they make their way to Kindergarten. And we would like to welcome in all of our new students to Merryhill. We are so glad you are here!

Electronic Sign-in and out System
Each day, you must sign your child in and out of school using the iPad located on the front desk. Please remember to sign in BEFORE dropping your child off in their classroom and when signing your child out for the day, please do so AFTER picking them up from the classroom. All authorized pick up and drop off individuals MUST have their own PIN and have their picture taken. If you have people on your list that have not set up their PIN or had their photo taken, please have them come into the school as soon as possible to get this done. We will not release the children to those individuals who do not have a PIN.
