About Us

We are a family-owned childcare center that values the importance of individualized learning. Mrs. Ahmed, the founder, was a teacher for 11 years in a very reputable and gifted program before her heart led her to start a childcare center in Herndon.

Our Goals

We are committed to:

  • Offering continuous quality care in a safe and secure setting
  • Providing a warm environment that allows each child to develop at his/her own pace
  • Finding new ways to stimulate and expand each and every child’s curiosity and intellect
  • Providing parents with peace of mind while at work
  • Supporting staff members as they fulfill their commitment to childcare

Our Philosophy

We believe that children should be challenged and encouraged constantly according to their age level, allowing us to identify and further develop their strengths. This is what we practice at Happy Hearts Children Learning Center.

Our lead teachers are fully qualified and are first aid and CPR certified. Each are required to maintain 16 additional hours of training per year to stay up-to-date.
