At Happy Days Preschool, our mission is to provide a warm, accepting and supportive atmosphere, which allows each child to explore the feelings of him/herself and others. We understand that children must have an abundance of self-esteem in order to grow into happy and successful adults. Therefore, we encourage each child’s sense of self-awareness and acceptance.
We allow children to explore and develop at their own rate, and respect each child’s autonomy. The magical process of free creating and exploration brings about positive and successful learning experiences. We use the Creative Curriculum Program, which allows our teachers to implement Nevada Infant/Toddler and Pre-K Standards in the classroom.
At Happy Days, we use positive guidance techniques to help children learn appropriate behaviors and develop problem-solving, decision-making, and creative-thinking skills in a fun, supportive environment.
Providing Quality Programs in Our Sparks Preschool
Happy Days Preschool is a non-denominational, non-profit out-reach mission of Sparks United Methodist Church. As a respected childcare provider, we have been servicing the Reno-Sparks community for over 20 years. We provide great affordable childcare for children ages 6 weeks to 5 years of age. We also provide care for school aged children during school breaks. Drop-ins are welcomed.
Like our children, Happy Days began small and over the years has grown to encompass dozens of children and an expanded staff. Sparks UMC, hand in hand with Happy Days Preschool, reaffirms daily their commitment to the needs of the community, childcare and educational excellence. We welcome you to our Happy Days family!
