What Parents Say (From Google Reviews)

I have used this daycare for a little over 7 years, for all 3 of my children. I remember when I was originally searching for a daycare with my first born. I had visited 3 other centers, but when I walked into Happy Hearts I just knew this was the right center. They have taken excellent care of my kids the last 7 years, from infancy through pre-k, and now with virtual learning also!! The staff has always been amazing, I can literally feel the love they have for my boys. Always so excited to see them, and concerned should they have to miss a day due to illness. The curriculum they use is high quality, and comprehensive. When my 1st son went to kindergarten, I knew he was more than ready due to what he learned in Pre-K at Happy Hearts. I have no doubt my two younger sons will also be ready when they make the transition from preschool to elementary school. Happy Hearts owner, Azmat Ahmed, and the staff also have been incredibly flexible with my schedule. As an RN my schedule changes every week, sometimes more than once, and they always worked with my schedule...priceless!! The pricing is extremely competitive, to be honest, the best I have come across for the peace of mind this center provides me and for the love they selflessly give to my kiddos!! I have recommended family & friends to Happy Hearts, and I will continue to do so. If you are looking for a daycare/preschool I am telling you this is the place!!

Our daughter has been going to Happy Hearts Daycare/Preschool for a year and we love it! They give us peace of mind as parents that our child is being looked after and cared for. Educationally, she comes home showing us new things she has learned at her age level. Socially, she’s learning to interact with children and play and have fun together. The school takes sanitation to heart during these times. Happy Hearts puts children first! I’m so thankful!

Moved to the area in January and had a seamless transition when starting my kids here. The staff was awesome with my kids. One was in the daycare and the other used the after school school age program. The only recommendation I would add for the center is to invest in a type of card payment system instead of having checks/money orders as the only way to pay. Other than that small thing the facility was clean and professional. Especially in this time of COVID you want a place that takes good care of your children.

My boys have been going to Happy Hearts for a year and love it! The great hours and affordable cost plus morning preschool are why we chose it. My kids were previously at a daycare that (at 1 and 3) they hated. It was amazing to see the transformation when we came to Happy Hearts. The older one adores his teacher and missed her so much during the shutdown. The younger one yells "YAY!" every time we turn into the parking lot and races into his room every morning. The teachers are all great and I am very impressed with how they relate to the kids. My husband and I have been thrilled by the progress my older son has made in writing and math. I love that it's a diverse community and my kids get to know a variety of people. I would definitely recommend this daycare!

We have been taking our son here for a year and we love it. The teachers are so loving and kind, and our son is so excited to see them everyday. He has been learning numbers, letters, colors, and more- it is definitely focused on learning as well as quality care. They have also been extremely helpful during the pandemic- they have been very safe in reopening and we feel very comfortable sending our son during this time. Highly recommend!
