Happy Hollow is great! I am very satisfied and happy I chose this center. My two kids have so much fun, the staff is caring, and the whole team seems to really care. Much more flexible than other centers I toured.

When we moved to Hartford we checked out several childcare options. We chose Happy Hollow for our 1yr old because we really like the personal attention our son receives and the family-like environment. He already has so many friends there he doesn’t want to leave when we pick him up.
