Merriday School is a family owned and operated school located in Syracuse, NY. Merriday has been open for almost 80 years.  Our program is designed to meet children's needs while challenging them to be the best they can be.

Our School

Our full-day Preschool - First Grade programs start at age three. Each of our programs offers a well rounded curriculum with a focus on the following areas of a child's growth: cognitive, fine arts, social, emotional and physical. The teachers at Merriday School understand that children learn at their own pace, that they need to be actively engaged to learn, and that play is an integral part of the learning process. 

Small groups allow teachers to be aware of the needs of each child and offer individualized attention when necessary, while children have a better chance to cooperate among themselves. 

Children in all of our programs receive specialized instruction in Spanish, American Sign Language, Art,  Music, and Movement. 

Merriday School encourages each child to develop socially, as an individual, responding to personal needs while adapting to the challenges of learning skills.  


Your child will have the opportunity to pursue a range of extracurricular activities to complement his or her rigorous academic curriculum. Our low student-to-teacher ratio ensures that your child gets the attention he or she deserves.

We invite you to come visit our school and learn more about our philosophy for preparing your child for success.
