The preschool/pre-k program is available for children ages three to five years during which time they engage in activities to prepare them for Kindergarten. Based on Vermont Act 166 every three and four year old can get some free hours of tuition at a pre-approved program. Happy Days is a pre approved program with a licensed preK teacher.
The daily schedule consists of: indoor and outdoor play, breakfast, group time, lunch, stories, music, drama, art and computer time as well as field trips and special events. Children also learn skills such as listening in a group, participating in group discussions, problem solving with peers and adults, and many self help skills.
Happy Days has a formal collaborative agreement with local school systems. Children may receive early intervention, speech and language, occupational therapy and other services at Happy Days.
