About the Provider

Description: Here at Happy Trails and Desert Trails we are always working towards a nurturing, yet challenging environment. We are State Licensed, DES approved, on the USDA food program, participate in First Things First and The Early Inclusion Program through the Blake Foundation/Easter Seals. We have a state certified teacher on staff as well as staff with their CDA and everyone is required to continue their education. We are a center where your child will feel safe and be educationally stimulated. We provide an environment where each child can grow and learn at his or her own pace in an individual child directed classroom while enjoying fun and rewarding achievements that come with learning. We are set up so each child has the opportunity to investigate, explore, study and discover in and outside of the classroom. Phonics, music, reading, writing, arts and crafts, games, dramatic play, science and math will all be part of your child’s daily schedule.

We believe that our program strength comes from our dedicated teachers. We support our teachers in continual training and educational resources. We are proud to say that all of our staff are CPR and First Aid Certified, have a fingerprint clearance card, CPS background check, TB and food handlers card. Our staff also receives at least 20 hours on continuing education classes and training through ADE and ADHS required trainings.
