The Merit School of Arlington has been a tremendous gift to our family. The Merit School of Arlington feels like a family. Having moved to the area and left a school we loved in another state, we were not expecting to find a community that met - much less exceeded - our expectations. It is not always easy finding people you feel comfortable leaving your children with everyday, but the Merit School of Arlington hires the best of the best. The teachers are enthusiastic, energetic, compassionate, and bright. The atmosphere is always cheerful and nurturing; it's the perfect environment for a child to learn and grow. We are continually amazed at the content our 3yo comes home sharing with great excitement. (Imagine our surprise when she informed us that the president of the United States is Barak Obama and he lives in the White House in Washington, DC.) We are immensely grateful for the Merit School and to the people who make it what it is.
We visited dozens of child care facilities in the area. Merit School won us over in part because their facility is beautiful and spacious, but most of all the staff was warm and caring from day one. It has become a great community for our daughter. All of the teachers know her and participate in her care, even those teaching other ages. The administration is open and accommodating. Any concerns we had about day care in general have dissipated because we know that she is being taken care of by professionals who give their whole hearts to their work.
My wife and I have our 2 1/2 year old son in the Preschool Explorers B room since mid-February, and we could not be more happy. His language, sharing, and overall maturity has grown leaps and bounds since he has started. He loves his teachers, get ample physical exercise, and is happy. We appreciate the feedback and would even want more, but understand the limitations of daily status reports.
Our son is two years old, and we're extremely pleased with the care and attention that his teachers provide him and the effort his teachers put into letting us know how he is doing each day. We really feel like we're working together with them to develop good behavior and skills in our son. The facility is modern, airy, and well-equipped with a variety of activities for the kids. We would strongly recommend that interested parents come by and check out the center for themselves.
Everyone at the Merit School is so kind, caring, and truly interested in our child. They gave us thorough reports about him daily, and as he started thriving there, it was touching to see all of the teachers so happy for him (he had some weeks with separation problems!) The facility is beautiful, clean, and well-organized. The staff members are fun, and are always engaged with the children, even during their free-play time. In particular, Ms. Sheena, Mr. Ron, and Ms. Gabby are truly excellent and you can tell that they love what they do. All of the staff members (even those not caring for our child) are friendly and all of the children in our son's class seemed happy and content. We were truly sad to have to leave. Our son still asks about his teachers and his friends and we plan to visit soon. This was our first experience with outside-the-home childcare and we could not have been happier. We are telling anyone who asks to try the Merit School!
You can feel the excitement in the air! Our staff is eager to share the love of learning with your children. Take a virtual tour of our school here and be sure to schedule a personal visit today!
