About Happy House Learning Center
About Our Center.
Our Center opened its doors for the first time in April 2003. The first steps were taken to assure high-quality education by applying for and attaining accreditation from the Apple Accrediting Agencies. Through the combined efforts of administrators, staff, parents, and students; the standards were raised. The next step taken was the expansion of the facilities; a kindergarten and first grade classrooms and additional staff was added. We are proud to announce that we are a 4 Star Quality Counts center sponsor by The Early Learning Coalition and The Children’s Trust. Over the years we have maintained the quality of our program; our center offers an open door policy. Our parents are involved in the renovation or establishment of our policies and are updated on our curriculum and planning of activities. Our children enjoy a quality program, where their individual needs are addressed with love and professionalism.
We receive funds and scholarships from School Readiness, VPK, Florida Pride Scholarship, food program and Quality Counts. At this moment we offer Child Care for infants to four years old, VPK children, kindergarten, first grade and aftercare program.
My Happy House strongly believes that in order for the child to make academic and social/emotional gains, there needs to be a home/school partnership. Twice per year, our teachers hold parent/teacher conference. During these conferences, teachers and parents discuss the children’s’ growth, areas that still need to be developed, and what can be done at home to reinforce what is being done in the classroom
While in our care, children are provided a free, nutritious breakfast, lunch and snack, cultural and fun field trips.
Speech, Occupational and Physical Therapist are welcome to our program to provide therapy for those children indentified as needing intervention.
My Happy House offers the parents workshops that focus on early childhood education, parenting skills, literacy, and other topics to help our parents with parenting and life skills.
Emergency situations often require the administration of first aid and CPR. Carlos Ortega, director assistant, offers training in first aid and CPR that can be helpful for families to learn injury prevention and emergency responses.
We also provide two Open Houses per year where parents get informed of what is happening in child’s classroom every day.
