Goals and Philosophy

Happy Trails School is a non-profit Christian school dedicated to the well-being and total development of children.  Our goal is to provide a loving Christian atmosphere where each child is accepted as a unique individual with a special purpose in life.  To help each child grow intellectually, emotionally, spiritually, physically and socially.  To assure parents a safe, secure environment within a church-related setting.  To encourage curiosity, exploration, discovery, sensitivity to others, verbal interaction, desirable social attitudes and feelings of success through a wide variety of daily activities.

We encourage open communication between school and parents. Parents are invited to participate in a wide variety of daily activities and special events. Please go to our Program page to see what your child will experience in our various programs.
