Celebrating Over 30 Years
Three Decades of Experience
Happy Face Nursery School has been educating local families since 1973. It is a New Jersey State Certified, non-profit, non-sectarian institution governed by a Board of Trustees. The same ideas, philosophy, perseverance, motivation, teacher dedication, and family involvement that started Happy Face Nursery School in 1973, are what keep it going today.
Dedicated Teachers and Families
of Happy Faces!
All of our teachers are all college graduates and collectively receive 100 hours of continuing credit in early childhood education every year. The Board is comprised of parents, staff, and community members. To learn more about our staff, click here. We pride ourselves on being a pre-school versus a day care center. Families are important to us, and opportunities are always available to participate with your child in school. One favorite gathering is our monthly sing-a-longs, where parents come to school to listen to children sing the songs for the month. Refreshments are served afterward. Each month, we publish our newsletter called The Smile, which provides information on recent happenings and upcoming events.
Stimulating Learning Environment
Our curriculum is a developmentally-appropriate, literature-based program with an emphasis on learning through hands-on experiences such as art projects, small and large motor play, sing-alongs, and field trips. Children are encouraged to explore, question, and problem solve through social interaction with peers and teachers.
Children learn to cooperate and share when at play. Our beautiful outdoor mural engages curious children.
