About the Provider


Happy Time is dedicated to fostering an environment filled with developmental learning and exploration activities such as: Circle Time, Arts and Crafts, Singing, Dancing, Instruments, Dress up, Free Play, Weekly Themes. Our fenced outdoor play space is a beautiful shaded space where children can safely and freely explore the outdoors. 

Our Parents will enjoy: An open door policy, Peace of Mind in our secure facility, and Real Time Child Reports via a parent app that can be loaded on your phone, tablet, or computer. 

Our preschool is located just a few steps away from the child care center so your 3 and 4 year old children will not require transportation to and from preschool.  

Happy Time Preschool is a partnership with the Muscatine Community School district.
