The Merit School of Broadlands


Such a fun day at school dancing!
Thanks so much to The Merit School for bringing their awesome school bus to the 6th Annual Virginia Touch-A-Truck! Come see them and so much more at StoneSprings Hospital Center until 3:00 p.m. today!
#shoutoutfriday to everyone at The Merit School of Broadlands who helps put this smile on his face!
Another great week!
So excited for Karate class and he came back showing me all his moves. #shoutoutfriday to The Merit School of Broadlands for putting this all together.
Another great day at Merit!
#shoutoutfriday to the teachers that make learning fun like when they made their own fruit basket this week!
Always his favorite, spending time at the activity table. This time it was water, so glad it’s at The Merit School of Broadlands and not the house. #ShoutFriday to the teachers and staff for making it so much fun.
What a fun science experiment. Making “green eggs”.
Love that she loves her teachers so much! 💕💕 #shoutoutfriday
#ShoutoutFriday to TMS Teachers that are always finding ways for my child to learn like this one where cole is learning to measure using soapy water in the sensory bin!
I can’t even begin to explain how grateful to god I am for the staff at The Merit School of Broadlands. This isn’t just a daycare/school. This is a family. As a mother of a somewhat introverted 3 year old, drop offs can be difficult. The staff at The MSB works very hard to get to know each child, helping them acclimate and adjust with ease. More importantly, they create a warm and loving environment that makes my child feel at home. My child also struggles with delayed speech and the structure and curriculum has helped him grow exponentially. Every day I see pictures of the children singing, crafting, building and exploring. The MSB staff has the utmost patience, professionalism and skill set at creating an enriched learning environment that feels like you’re dropping your child off with family. Thank you again to all of you for your hard work, patience and dedication to the development of my child. ♥️♥️♥️
