Happy Hollow Learning Center is the perfect fit for our family. My daughter had never been under anyone else’s care other than mine. With the great teachers and staff, she was able to make a very smooth transition. We have noticed so much growth since her starting there. It isn’t easy working full time and sending my precious little girl to daycare, but having Happy Hollow as the place she spends her days certainly sets my mind more at ease. I am so grateful that I have found a daycare where she is so well cared for and loved.

Having experience with child care centers from both customer and employee points of view, I can say with confidence that the Happy Hollow Learning Center provides quality care for all of its students. The staff and administration do a great job with my two children who have been attending for almost a full year.
