About

The story of Happy Child Preschool & Daycare began many years ago in the former Soviet Union. The director, Mira Fayngersh, grew up in a family of educators. Mira's mother was a life-long math teacher and her father was a school principal. Although Mira graduated with a Bachelor Degree in Chemical Engineering, she quickly realized that her true calling was teaching. She began working as a teacher at a local preschool, where her son was attending a toddler group. Mira continued her education while working her way up to take charge of the entire school of over 200 kids.

In 1988, Mira left the Soviet Union. After stepping off the plane in Boston, she started working at a home daycare in Brookline the very next day. One year later, Happy Child Daycare & Preschool welcomed its first child. Without any advertising, the school's popularity was growing by word of mouth. In a few short years, the original school of 18 children has grown to the almost 80 precious minds we have today.

From the moment you walk through the doors, you sense that this place is very special. From Lilya (the school cook who's been with us for over 15 years), who prepares warm daily meals; to the warm smiles of teachers and happy voices of children in the classrooms, you can feel the atmosphere of the school right away! Children enjoy countless trips to the petting zoo, apple picking, sprinkler parks, recreational parks, movies and hay rides, and of course the famous Halloween parade; it seems the school has and does it all! Happy Child engages children in numerous classes such as: karate, soccer, creative movement and music. Then, in the summer, there are the wadding pools and the sprinklers, kids' absolute favorite. Every year, we hold a Thanksgiving Potluck dinner, an Art Gallery, and Welcome Back to School party. Throughout the year, families enjoy many "breakfast with parents" mornings, along with their children. The year is wrapped up with our annual graduation BBQ, which includes clowns and fun galore!

To put it simply, Happy Child Preschool & Daycare is the home away from home for your children. The teachers, most with bachelor's or master's degrees in education, are devoted to raising happy, healthy, and intelligent children and put their heart and soul into their teaching.

Reach out to us and find out for yourself why countless parents choose to have their kids spend their days with us.
