Merrick Woods

  • 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.
