Ready for School

Merryhill Preschool is dedicated to teaching young children the necessary skills for future academic success

Merryhill Preschool, located at 4250 Trail Boss Drive in Castle Rock, has been serving students from six weeks old through pre-K since 2005. Merryhill Preschool’s signature Links to Learning preschool curriculum prepares students for kindergarten and beyond by tapping into a child’s readiness to learn with activities that are fun, challenging, and engaging.

The seven components of Links to Learning are Language and Literacy, Mathematical Thinking, Social-Emotional Learning, Wellness, Creative Expression, Scientific Exploration, and Citizens of the World. Throughout the day, students participate in a variety of activities that touch on all seven components, including exercising fine motor skills and hand-eye coordination, learning about healthy choices through basic nutritional and safety concepts, practicing self-expression through music and art, recognizing and labeling emotions, sharing, and making friends.

“For nearly two decades, Merryhill Preschool has proudly been serving the Castle Rock community by combining learning experiences with structured play to help children grow academically, socially, and emotionally,” said Peyton Johnston, Principal at Merryhill Preschool in Castle Rock. “Our staff is full of passionate educators who are dedicated to providing a learning environment that fosters curiosity and creativity, and prepares students for their futures inside and outside of the classroom.”

In addition to the extensive curriculum, Merryhill Preschool also works to instill a sense of social responsibility in all students by participating in a variety of community initiatives throughout the year, including environmentally friendly activities on Earth Day, meeting with first responders and thanking them for their service, donation drives for local organizations, and more! Through these initiatives, students learn from a young age that they have the power to make a difference in the world. 

Merryhill Preschool puts the child's needs above all else and the entire staff is passionate about caring for and educating young children. The teachers are dedicated and constantly work to ensure every child is happy, thriving, and ready for what comes next. Family boards provide daily and weekly classroom updates, a monthly folder includes skills and goals, samples of a child’s work and ideas for activities to do at home, and the Links 2 Home app allows teachers to send daily reports and photos.
