Our APPROACH

Knowledge, Growth & Joy

At our childcare center, we're dedicated to creating a safe, nurturing environment where children can thrive. Our tailored early childhood education program emphasizes scaffolding children's learning, focusing on their individual needs and interests. We prioritize emotional and social development, fostering self-confidence and strong peer relationships in a loving, supportive atmosphere. Through our curriculum, we aim to cultivate these vital skills, helping children learn and grow.

Pillars of Success

Services

Positive Education

At our centers, we foster independence and self-confidence in our students through positive education. Our teachers employ techniques like positive reinforcement, redirection, and emotional guidance to support this approach.

Family Partnership

We believe in close partnerships with our families to ensure consistency for our students. From regular updates to listening to feedback, we prioritize collaboration every step of the way in their development.

Curated Environment

Environment plays a huge role in child development. What children hear, see, and experience matters. At Happy Days, we apply this concept to both our classroom spaces and curriculum. We pay careful attention to how each classroom is set up, as well as all content placed before the children.

Lifelong Learning

We view our students as life’s little explorers. Our program gives students the necessary tools to delve into the world around them as they grow and develop. Our children are equipped to continue their own educational endeavors for their whole life’s journey.

Grow NJ Kids

We are currently enrolled in the GNJK process & we look forward to all the wonderful opportunities this new endeavor will bring to our center, the community, our staff and most importantly the families we serve. "Grow NJ Kids is a state-sponsored initiative to raise the quality of childcare and early learning throughout New Jersey. Grow NJ Kids gives childcare and early learning programs resources to assess and improve their programs, while providing parents with information that allows them to evaluate the quality of programs and make the best choices for their child. The goal is to create a system that encourages ongoing improvement. Grow NJ Kids is part of a national effort. More than 40 other states are at some stage of launching their effort to improve quality. All types of programs can participate in Grow NJ Kids – a childcare center, a school- or center-based preschool program, a HeadStart program, as well as a registered family childcare provider, who cares for children in his/her home."
