Classes, Sessions, and Staff PhotoThe children are grouped by ages into four classes. "Popcorn" and "Peanut" classes are reserved for younger children and "Bubblegum”, "Crackerjack” and "M&M"classes are for children preparing for entrance into kindergarten. We are licensed for 20 children per class and each class has three teaching staff.


Our theme based curriculum is geared toward helping children develop literacy, math and science concepts as well as fostering creativity, social, emotional and physical development. The "Second Step" early learning program is also implemented at Happy Valley and focuses on teaching important skills related to children's social and emotional development.  It focuses on skills for learning, empathy, emotion management and friendship skills, and problem solving.  The “Get Set For School” program through Handwriting Without Tears is utilized for our Pre-K children. Through music, movement, building, coloring and multi-sensory activities, children have fun as they develop important school readiness skills.


Classes are in session from September through May, Monday through Friday.  We offer a three-hour morning session two or three days per week (8:00 A.M - 11:00 A.M or 8:15 A.M. - 11:15 A.M.).  For Preschool we offer a two and one half hour afternoon session two, three or four days per week (12:00 P.M. - 2:30 P.M or 12:15 P.M. - 2:45 P.M.).  Our Pre-K afternoon session is two hours and forty-five minutes two or three days per week (12:00 - 2:45 PM or 12:15 - 3:00 PM).  Our four-day program is available to Pre-K children only, and is Monday through Thursday 12:15 PM - 3:00 PM.


We provide a staff that incorporates experience in early childhood education, a degree in Early Childhood, Child Development or Director's certification. They are caring and nurturing and have a strong dedication to the children and families they serve.
