Happy Time Day Care Center began its journey in 1969. The road has been long, hard and steady. There was a great need for child care in the community because many women began to work outside of the home. Delores Anderson, founder of Happy Time Day Care Center, decided to open a "day care center" in November 1969. Delores, a pioneer in early childhood education, worked countless hours to make Happy Time Day Care Center the best it could be.
In January 1986, Nancy Thomas, Delores's daughter joined Happy Time Day Care Center as a teacher. She worked in the classroom for 10 years and has been the director since 1995.
Our philosophy is very simple. We are an education based on relationships. Our focus is to provide a balanced approach to children, parents, teachers and community. By doing so, we become stronger as a community. Children go to school with skills to be successful. Parent have peace of mind knowing their child is educated and safe. The staff have support and supplies to create dynamic environments for children to explore, discover and learn. When all of this is in place, the community prospers.
