What parents have to say about the program:
I am very pleased with Happy Faces. We didn’t plan to send our daughter to a day care, but circumstances changed and we needed to. We loved our first visit to Happy Faces and had a good feel for the caring teachers, fun, bright, and CLEAN atmosphere. Emily has been at the school for 1.5 years and she looks forward to going to “school” in the morning and seeing her friends. She is learning a lot and I feel she will be well prepared when it’s time to go into Kindergarten. The teachers communicate well and I always feel like I’m leaving my child in safe-hands. I highly recommend Happy Faces!
