Merit Pre-K is a well-balanced program combining structured academics and play time, including creative hands-on activities.

With a greater level of security and confidence, a Pre-K student is ready for a greater challenge. As students progress through the Pre-K program, the environment they have come to know gradually becomes more defined and organized. At this age children can pay attention for longer periods of time, so we incorporate activities to enhance their cognitive development and curiosity.
