Priority registration has ended! Thank you for loving our school and wanting to come back year after year! Most of all, thank you for trusting us to take excellent care of your child and allowing us to build that strong foundation they need for their future education!
What is commitment? Dedication, loyalty, trust and promise are just a few words that describe commitment. These are very powerful words! I have committed myself to Merryhill School for 25 years because I love our school, I take pride in our school, and our company takes good care of us! I am sure this is how all of you feel and we want to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for committing to Merryhill School! After our stellar Open House we are now full in all of our classrooms with waiting lists to get into the new school year that starts June 3rd! The only class that has openings now is our Toddler and Infant room. We had our first family here at 7:04 am camping out for the Open House (Open House started at 10:00 am), just to register for the new school year! Thanks to our amazing teachers and our families who love us so much and spread the word of Merryhill School to others, we broke another record this year!
Now that the buzz of the holiday season is behind us…Our Merryhill teachers, Ms. Vanessa, and I would like to thank you for all the generosity over the holidays. Thank you for all of the love and appreciation!

Parent Referral Program:
If there’s one thing parents love to do, it’s talk about their children’s successes.
When friends ask you about your child’s experiences at Merryhill School, what type of success stories do you share? Do you mention the personal and educational discoveries 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?
*For every new child you refer who enrolls at our school for three months, you’ll receive one FREE week of tuition for your child*.
It’s our way of saying thanks for doing what comes naturally – singing the praises of your child and sharing your experiences with the Merryhill School difference!!
