Experience the Difference

From the very moment you enter the Merrimack PTA Kindergarten and Preschool, you will know why it is the right place for your child. Whether it is the cheerful staff or our unique two room schoolhouse, steeped in history, you will know that Merrimack PTA stands apart. Merrimack PTA Kindergarten and Preschool is a private, non-profit organization established in 1961 under the auspices of the Parent Teacher Association of the Merrimack School District.

We are a small private school in the heart of Merrimack’s Reeds Ferry district. Our caring staff work hard everyday to ensure that your children benefit from a happy, safe, but challenging environment.


Our Philosophy

Merrimack PTA’s educational philosophy promotes the total development of each child and respects the individual differences from one student to the next. We believe that nurturing self-confidence in children is essential to the adjusting, exploring, and growing stages of their development.

Our curriculum is an age-appropriate, educationally sound program that has been tested and proven to be highly effective. The curriculum is based on our philosophy that children learn best through hands-on activities that address the needs of each child. Our program reflects our belief that children need a balance of child-initiated and teacher-lead activities each day.
