Ms. Merritt Balding

My name is Merritt Balding and I am so excited to be in 4K at Northside Elementary School. I graduated from Winthrop with a Bachelor's Degree in Early Childhood Education.  I have taught kindergarten for over 28 years.  It is so exciting to see the learning happening in the young minds of children. I believe that children learn in a safe, happy environment where they can play and discover. 4K is the place to be and I am so grateful to be part of your child's first educational experience.
