Happy House Daycare was opened in 2008, it all started in Uta Squires 2000sqft basement. The original license was 2 Educators and 13 children. By the time August 2011 rolled around they had far surpassed that. They had become a licensed and accredited program and were at 7 Educators and 35 children. With the phone ringing off the hook each day with parents needing high quality child care it was time for a move. Uta contacted the Northern Lights School Division and signed the lease for one year to take over the old Grand Center Middle School. With a very short time limit they renovated the school and moved in August 26, 2011 with 20 Educators and 64 children. As it stands as of September,2019 Happy House Daycare South currently has 47 Educators, 310 children and 16 classrooms. Happy House Daycare now leases the entire school, which provides care for ages 0-12 years old. As of May 1,2019 Uta, Squire opened a second location in Cold Lake North-Happy House Daycare North. This is a brand-new building that Uta put her heart and soul into designed and accommodating all the Lakeland areas needs. As of September 2019, this building holds 15 educators and 100 children.
Happy House Daycare Inc is a provincially licensed and successfully accredited under the Early Learning and Care Services of Alberta. At both locations we provide breakfast, lunch and snack all based on the Canadian food guide. We have a play through learn philosophy that all planning is based off the children’s interests. By teaching this way your children are learning all their cognitive, fine-gross motor, social and language skills but in a way that they can understand.
