    This place is fantastic! I went there as a child all the way through Kindergarten (they offered a kindergarten class at that time). My son goes there and the staff is great! He is now 5 years old and I have never had to worry about his care. I am so greatful that I do not have to be concerned about him when I am at work. I will be sad next year because he will not be able to attend during the school year because we live in a different school system. I highly recommend this daycare.

    I love this place!!! They have taught my children so much about the Lord, my five year old has been praying on her own since she was one, and my toddler now joins in. The teachers are great! My children will continue to grow and learn at Merrie Time as long as possible. May God continue to bless these women who teach my beautiful babies!! R I P Mrs. Kathy

    I've used this daycare for about 5 years now. I've never had a issue with any of my children in any of their classes. They all love going and happy when i pick them back up. I highly recommend them.
