About Happy Days Childcare & Learning Centers of Northwest Indiana

Our Philosophy

Choosing a child care center is one of the most important decisions parents can make. Your child's early years are critical future success. We understand the level of trust you place in us when you enroll your child at Happy Days Childcare & Learning Centers. We strive to provide the best in educational opportunities for all children in our care. We are dedicated to providing your child the foundation for a lifelong love of learning.

Our programs begin with age appropriate environments that encourage children to learn, play, and explore every aspect of their childhood. We strive not only to motivate children to explore the world around them, but also to come to better understanding of themselves. We are sensitive each child's individual social, emotional, intellectual, and physical needs.

When your child is in our care, whether in the classroom or out on our playground, they will be in a physical environment that is safe, clean, healthy, and child-oriented. Our childcare center offers your child challenging play and learning opportunities appropriate for each stage of their development.

The strength of our childcare program is our dedicated teaching staff. The development of our comprehensive curriculum uses age-appropriate learning activities. Our teachers' continued training provides them with the education and resources to create unique learning experiences for our children. By creating a caring and nurturing environment, the teachers are able to expand each child's creativity and boost their self-image.

While at the center we aim to be the stepping stone to your child's education. We believe that parents provide the roots that sustain children throughout their lives. For the benefit of your children, we encourage mutually respectful partnerships between parents and teachers. Our doors are open to parents at all times, and we encourage daily communication. By working together, we can enrich the lives of each of our children and their families
