My child attended Happy Faces Early Learning Academy from age 4.5 months until his recent graduation at 3.5. For the first three years of his life, Happy Faces provided a loving, nurturing and strong learning environment for my son. He learned to walk, talk and write at Happy Faces. They also fully potty trained him. The administration is responsive and reliable.
