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.
