Before moving to Syracuse, our son had been in a few different schools. We tried early learning at our University, and a couple corporate schools like La Petite. Those programs paled in comparison to Merriday and it's staff. The pricipal is sincere and ingaging, the teachers are patient and sensitive to individual needs, and the parents of the children are involved. We absolutely adore Merriday and pulling our son from this school is our only regret to moving away. You just won't find this kind of program anywhere else. Money has never been the reason behind my child attending there. If you've been to other schools, you know how tuition tends to be the motivation behind the program. I have never once felt that here. These are great people who teach our kids cause they WANT to. I just can't say enough how happy we are with the place, and I urge every parent to meet with Mrs. Jacki and visit the school. Our was smart before he started attending. Now, he's sensitive to others feelings, he's helpful and takes responsibility for himself and his possessions, and he has an appreciation for the World and everyone in it. These qualities take years to develop. He's attended for 9 months.

My daughter has been attending Merriday since she was 3 years old and now is the kindergarten class. I love how much she has flourished as a student. I am amazed at how much my daughter has learned from day 1. This is a great private school at an affordable price and I'm sad that they only go up to grade 2. Everyone in the school has a personal relationship with my daughter and I don't feel as if she's just another student they just push along. They are diverse and the students get to experience many more opportunities in the community than a large school. I have talked to 3 different parents who's children have gone through Merriday and they were very pleased as well with the educational foundation their children received.

The Merriday School has been an outstanding environment for my 2 little boys. Currently in Pre-school and Pre-K my little fellows are extremely excited to attend school. They speak lovingly about their teachers and are always excited to do homework over the weekend. The ability to create a learning environment that motivates a child to continue to learning out of school hours is commendable. Another huge kudo goes to Mrs. Jackie and her staff in also creating a culturally motivated environment for learning not only the basics but appreciation for all ethnic groups and celebrations. My boys are able to share with me the many special things about different cultures, holidays, history, in a context of appreciation. I am encouraged every day I drop off my boys to this wonderful place of learning, as I am confident they are recieving assistance in the 'stuff' that counts.

Merriday is a smalland efficient school. Parents looking to get thier child quality education in a small class romm setting....this is the place. My daughter has been attending Merriday and her educational, social, and emotional skills have blossomed to help bring out a confident,bright and articulate little girl. Ms. Jackie(her principle) takes time out to get to know each individual child. She has been a blessing to me and my daughter and I commend her and my daughters teacher(Ms. Barrows). All of the staff are professional and polite... Always willing to point you in the right direction. I can not say enough about the benefits my child has reaped in attending Merriday. This will be my daughters last year and I am very skeptical that the public school distric will be able to compete with the outstanding performance of Merriday, however I am confident that my daughter has recieved a solid foundation that will stay with her for many years.
