Annie Merrick, Preschool Director

We are so excited to welcome back our friend and neighbor, Ms. Annie Merrick, for the third time–and now, finally, in the role as our permanent director! She begins her service among us, full time, on August 1st.


Annie Merrick has been working in the early childhood field for 17 years. She has worked in every position, starting with afternoon assistant and ending with director.  She earned her BA in Sociology from UNCW and earned her 90 hour and 45 hour certificates. She is married to her husband Chris and lives in Canton with him, her very favorite dog, George, and their daughter, Emma! She loves cooking, watching soccer (go Liverpool!) and home projects.  She is looking forward to meeting all you and your kiddos.
