What Happy Hearts Riverhead offers your child

We know it’s important that your child is genuinely cared for by passionate teachers who have the well-being of your child as their priority.

Our focus and themes are always child-led, whether it be experimentation, exploration or play. The children in our care let us know what they’re interested in and we explore each topic through song, music, drama, art, movement, and the natural world. Your child will enjoy their own separate, age-appropriate room that caters for their specific needs. Each has its own Head Teacher and team, who provide an educational focus in an environment where learning is fun.



What our parents and teachers say

"We are so impressed with Happy Hearts! The centre itself is lovely and welcoming and the staff & teachers are just wonderful. Choosing a daycare is a daunting task especially as first time parents, but we have had an amazing experience at Happy Hearts. Lucy settled straight in and loves the time she spends there, her days are filled with so much fun. We will be sad to leave Room One in a couple of months, Steph, Hayley and Corrine truly treat Lucy like she is family and I have no doubt it will be the same when we move next door to Room Two"

"The Happy Hearts crew and center are the absolute best! Our little one love the place so much she can't wait to go every morning which makes our life easy!"
 – Ewen Morgan 

"Highly recommend: great values, well-managed by the owners, a thoughtful and considered learning environment, and experienced and caring teachers."
