about us

Mission Statement

The Merry Go Around Child Development Center is a diverse program dedicated to nurturing the whole child in all areas of development: physical, emotional, cognitive, social, and language. This is accomplished through the collaboration of the families, staff, children, and community. We provide developmentally-appropriate, individualized care that promotes growth, joy, respect, and self-worth through meaningful experiences. We strive to create and maintain a caring and supportive environment that encourages exploration and enriches the imagination.

A Little Bit About Us

We are a non-profit child care center accredited by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC).  We service federal and military families, as well as families in the community.

  • Low teacher to child ratio
  • Respect and celebrate the cultural and ethnic diversity of all children and families
  • Development of your child’s physical, social, emotional, and cognitive needs
  • All tuition is vested directly back into the Center

NAEYC Accreditation

The Merry Go Around has proudly earned accreditation by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC), the nation’s largest organization of early childhood educators. NAEYC provides a widely-recognized, professionally-sponsored accreditation system. Early childhood schools and child care centers voluntarily comply with certain criteria to achieve this honor.
