It is important to us that your child settles at Happylands quickly and gains confidence through continuity of care. In our many years of experience we find that one of the best way to achieve this is to attend at least two days a week.

This continuity is followed through with our staffing policy where the majority of staff are full time or work full days with no split shifts. This continuity is also reflected in the retention of loyal dedicated staff as you can see below.

The Happylands team is what makes us so special. We have a very low staff turnover and lots of very long serving staff members. Many of our team have children of their own so are able to understand your concerns as a parent. We have included a little bit of information about everyone to give you chance to meet the team!
