Our Philosophy

All children can and must learn. They learn at their best when their mental and emotional needs are satisfied and when they feel safe in the surrounding environment. Our school Happy Childhood is proud to provide an educating and caring ambiance in which all our children feel safe and involved. Our center promotes individual creativity, social and academic growth, as well as respect for others, which brings up happy, confident, and successful children!

Our History

    July 1989

    A group of concerned parents of children with disabilities could not find a preschool that would provide the therapy services their children needed and education they deserved. So, they decided to establish an early learning center that would serve all children, no matter their physical or emotional development level or socioeconomic status.
