Happy Hall is led by experienced teachers who maintain a safe and creative environment where children develop new skills and positive attitudes towards learning. In additional to being qualified, capable and experienced, our staff is spirited, fun loving and always supportive of parents. Our teachers have been educated in Early Childhood Development, trained in CPR and First Aid, and receive continuous year-round training.

Our teachers follow Desired Results Developmental Profile (DRDP)

The Desired Results for Children

  • DR1: Children are personally and socially competent
  • DR2: Children are effective learners
  • DR3: Children show physical and motor competence
  • DR4: Children are safe and healthy

Teachers at Happy Hall School have been trained to:

Observe, document, and reflect upon children’s development;
Share children’s progress with families;
Report DRDP-R data to program administrators;
Use the DRDP-R to improve program practices and curriculum;
Gather data to compile a comprehensive portfolio containing children’s work.

There are three versions of the DRDP-R developed for the following age groups:

Infant Toddler (I/T) – Birth to 36 months;
Preschool (PS) – 3 years to Kindergarten;
School Age (SA) – Kindergarten through 12 years
