Hello and welcome to Happy Faces Prep School. We’re not sure if you know this but Happy Faces has been a preschool at this location for over 30 years. About 13 years ago Ms. Jennifer and Mr. Dave Kruse bought the school and began a new era filling the school with the happy faces of young children, staff and parent’s that share our community. Since taking over, the two of them have completely made over the school both inside and out. They remodeled the interior by opening up spaces, bringing in bright colors and light as well as creating an amazing play area outside. This gives the children lots of room to run and play, including an age appropriate playground for each class. They also raised the bar by making Happy Faces an accredited gold seal school. Happy Faces truly is a happy place for your children to come and learn. Our goal is to create a nurturing environment so that your children feel safe as they learn. We hope that you will feel so good about our school that you will share your children with us from preschool through our aftercare program (K-5).
