Welcome to

Merry Days

Our aim is to provide a safe, happy and stimulating environment where children
can learn through a wide variety of play. Our emphasis is on an all-round
development with respect for each child’s individual needs. With a happy and
relaxed atmosphere and good supervision your child will be able to develop their
social, emotional, physical and intellectual needs, encouraging your child to be
independent and responsible.


Whilst at Merry Days the children will follow the Early Years Foundation Stage. The
foundation stage covers the child’s development from their third birthday to the
end of the Reception year.
