At Merrick Woods Country Day School, we take into consideration the fact that each child is an individual, with different levels of ability, different potentials, and different background experiences.
Basically, each child comes to us with different needs, motivations, and abilities.
It is our challenge to meet these needs and create in each of them a positive self image along with the joy of learning.
We provide an atmosphere conducive to each child's self expression.
We provide potential success experiences that develop each child's self confidence.
We do not compare children or their work. We give opportunities to use materials freely in a creative environment.
This does not mean that children are to function without direction.
We establish broad guidelines that are consistent for them to follow.

Choosing a private school is a process with many parts to it. It also takes 18-24 months to complete. This collection of articles deals with the first part of the process in which you begin to look at private schools and what they offer.
A parent and I chat about finding the best school for her daughter. While the parent may be fictitious, her questions are quite typical of the kind of questions and concerns parents have when thinking about sending their children to private school.
Marketing the small private school can be done affordably and effectively. We suggest five easy steps to make that happen.
