School Reviews

both my children attended Merriday School at age 3. it was the best place I could have ever put them. I knew when I left them each morning, they would be in great hands with Ms. Jackie! my son (Brandon) and daughter (Courtney) learned to swim there. they don''t have places like Merriday anymore. thank you, thank you, thank you.
