Trust Your Child to People Who Really Care!


Serving the community since 1989, at MERRY MOPPET EARLY LEARNING CENTER in Hilliard, OH, Dublin/Worthington, OH. Our mission is to provide a safe, warm, nurturing and loving atmosphere that promotes the physical, social, emotional, and cognitive development of young children set in the context of Christian love. Our curriculum planning emphasizes learning as an interactive process. Teachers prepare the environment for children to learn through active exploration and interaction with adults, other children, and materials. These activities are designed to develop children’s self-esteem and positive feelings toward learning.

In seeking the very highest quality of experience for your child, Merry Moppet provides:

  1. A warm, loving environment – to be partners with parents – in the “next best place to home!”
  2. The finest competent instruction available locally! Your child will have a planned, active, well-balanced day in a positive learning atmosphere, which will prepare him or her for later school years and life experiences.
  3. A pre-K program that is very special in that many of the children are reading when they enter kindergarten!
  4. Your child will learn to build positive, healthy relationships with both his peers and with adults in an atmosphere where problem-solving, creative-thinking and positive attitudes are encouraged.
  5. The early childhood teachers provide a variety of fun-filled learning experiences plus a Christian emphasis.
  6. Merry Moppet Centers have been locally owned and family operated since 1989.
