Happy House

Childcare in

Royal Oak

Our center is located in a converted house and accommodates  up to 21 children ages  6 weeks to 5 years.  We strive to create a cozy home away from home atmosphere. Our small size is especially conducive for the reopening after COVOID 19. The outdoor classroom, sensory garden, and separate infant/toddler and preschool play yards, help to make this a perfect place to learn and grow! 

Our program is Reggio Emilia inspired and aligns with all Michigan Early Childhood Standards of Quality for Prekindergarten. We utilize a separate classroom environment with a private outdoor classroom dedicated to expanding the learning environment. 

Beginning in the fall of 2020 Happy House will be incorporating new curriculum in our classrooms.

Eco Friendly Toys

Happy House is dedicated to providing quality, earth friendly play equipment. While, it is impossible to remove all plastic from our program, we do our best to seek out wooden, fabric, and RECYCLED plastic toys that can stand up to the tough play of children.

Baby Signs

The Baby Signs program is used with the children of Happy House. Starting at around 6 months, we begin  using a few basic signs to help the child tell us what they need. The older children enjoy helping teach the babies!
