HAPPY HALL @ SAN BRUNO
Welcome to a place where learning is a joyful journey and discovery is a daily adventure!
Happy Hall nurtures young minds aged 18 months to 5 years. Our programs are meticulously designed to nurture the intellectual, emotional, social, and physical facets of every child, embodying our commitment to fostering lifelong learning habits.
Rooted in experiential learning, we believe in the transformative power of hands-on experiences and real-world exploration, allowing children to internalize concepts deeply and ignite their passion for discovery. This approach transcends conventional learning paradigms, ensuring our students are well-equipped to apply their knowledge and skills in diverse settings.
Toddler (ages 1.5-3)
Our Toddler program is a nurturing space where burgeoning independence is celebrated, and curiosity is the compass guiding joyful explorations and learning milestones.
Preschool (ages 3-4)
In our Preschool program, we cultivate a sense of initiative and persistence, integrating active play and environmental interaction as pivotal components of advanced learning and development.
TK (ages 3-4)
Our TK program is a preparatory haven where foundational academic skills are intertwined with values like respect, conflict resolution, and problem-solving, paving the way for a smooth transition into formal schooling.

These centers are not just spaces but experiences, where the joys of discovery and the excitement of learning intertwine, fostering an early love for knowledge and exploration.
COMMUNITY & DIVERSITY
Nestled in the serene and diverse San Bruno community, Happy Hall is proud to be a microcosm reflecting the rich tapestry of cultures and backgrounds, ensuring a welcoming and inclusive environment for every child and family. Our dedicated teaching team and our familial events underscore our commitment to creating a close-knit and supportive community.
Active young minds and bodies need the right fuel. That’s why we serve warm, nutritious lunches and wholesome snacks, prepared fresh each day, offering a variety of dishes that introduce children to new flavors.
But mealtime is more than just about eating; it’s a time of learning and bonding. Serving meals family-style fosters a sense of community and sharing, allowing children to practice passing, sharing, and enjoying food together. It’s a daily opportunity for children to strengthen social bonds and develop essential interpersonal skills in a joyful, communal setting.
Life Skills are the cornerstone of our learning environment, reflecting our commitment to fostering responsible, caring, and flexible individuals. These skills are more than characteristics; they are lived values, actively embodied and modeled within our classrooms every day. They are the foundation for creating an atmosphere ripe with accountability, empowerment, empathy, and safety.
By emphasizing constructive problem-solving and effective communication, we guide children to understand and resolve conflicts positively, mitigating frustration and discouragement. This approach aligns with our experiential learning philosophy, enabling children to apply these vital skills in real-world contexts.
Nestled in a serene residential area, our school features three specially designed playgrounds, each catering to the diverse needs of different age groups, offering a secure and enriching space for discovery and play.
Organic Garden: A living, breathing classroom where children connect with nature and learn the fundamentals of growth, nutrition, and sustainability.
Village: A miniature world where imagination rules and children explore social roles, community interactions, and foundational societal structures.
Bicycle & Scooter Trail: A pathway of fun and learning, enhancing coordination, balance, and the joy of movement.
