                                        Our Philosophy

  We believe that all children deserve love, attention, and nurturing. We believe that a safe environment allows children to explore and grow. At Merrimac Learning Center, we allow children to have hands-on learning experiences. This fosters age appropriate development. We read to the children everyday.We also reiterate the importance of sensory development through play.Children learn best from experiencing the world around them. For example, how would you know if an apple was sweet if you could not ever taste it or smell it? Children are very curious by nature and we encourage them to learn through their 5 senses.  We believe that positive reinforcement is important for children to develop self-esteem. Children need an environment that supports free expression and stimulates learning. Most importantly, however, We believe that children need to have fun! At Merrimac, we often have ice cream parties, movie days, and play lots of exciting games. We also reiterate the importance of sensory development through play.Children learn best from experiencing the world around them. For example, how would you know if an apple was sweet if you could not ever taste it or smell it? Children are very curious by nature and we encourage them to learn through their 5 senses.  Merrimac limits TV to just one movie, or one hour per day.

   The young years have been proven to be the optimum time to learn a vast majority of the things we carry in to life with us. There is an optimum time to learn and if we miss it we never really catch up.
At Merrimac we strongly believe that each and every child is unique and their identity and self-image is an important part of them growing up. Every child has the right to the awareness of his/her family roots, their cultural and religious background and the society they are living in. We respect that individuality and encourage each child to be proud of whom they are.

  At Merrimac  we recognize that you have a difficult schedule and support parents the best we can. We recognize the importance of work, and the stress and demands placed on parents. We strive to make it easier on parents by giving them the knowledge that their children are in good hands.

We have very little turnover and maintain the highest professional standards at our facility. We are delighted and honored to get the opportunity to participate in the important early years of your child/children's development. It is a responsibility that we take seriously.
