The children in Happy Kids FDC are encouraged to join in with a wide variety of activities, including arts and craft, music, reading stories and rhymes, physical movement, group activities and lots more. In addition, we encourage children to learn to be independent. We support them to develop skills such as eating on their own, getting dressed, organising their own bag, sun safety, making choices for themselves,asking for help and developing an increasing level of awareness of self and others.

As they get older, our activities are increasingly oriented toward school readiness, the goal of which is to help children develop skills and knowledge for a smooth transition to "big school" or primary school.

Please feel free to take a look at our gallery of images, which have been presented here with permission of the families.

We have also included below some reviews from the families of children in our care. We understand how important it is that you feel assured of the quality of care, learning and experience your child will have with us.

Please don't hesitate to get in touch if you have any questions.

The following reviews of parents are from my Facebook page, Happy Kids Family Day Care.

"My son, Oliver, attended Happy Kids  Family Day Care for over a year.

Maria is a great educator and supported Oliver in learning many new skills through play. He always looked forward to and enjoyed his days here and it has played a huge role in his development.

I would recommend Happy Kids Family Day Care to anyone who is looking for a daycare with a

wonderful atmosphere and a family feel." ---  Anne Smith

" Our daughter has been attending Happy Kids FDC for over a year now. Maria is a great educator who teaches new skills through play.

The small group setting is a perfect environment with a family feel and  our daughter is always looking forward to seeing her friends."---- Loic Golliard

"Maria goes above and beyond, time and time again  by providing stellar education opportunities for my children, an infinite amount of patience and wisdom, and a genuine warmth and care that makes

us feel as if we are leaving our children with a trusted, skilled member of our family. My husband and I feel so lucky that we have our children attending Happy Kids Family Day Care and would not hesitate
