We are also committed to working in an environmentally responsible way, and continually strive to reduce the environmental impact of the work we do and the products we use. For example, we have put this policy in practice by using mattresses that are made of organically grown cotton and supplies such as paper and pencils, from recycled material.
In each Happy Children day care solution, the highest priority of our professional teams is to ensure the child's security, integrity and identity. Our teams find ways to maintain an ongoing link between the child and his parents in their absence.
Our professional are neither substitutes nor replacements for parents: they serve as a relay.
