Welcome to Happy Farm Children's Centre

The mural painted on the front of Happy Farm Children’s Centre by artists David Ham and Emi Kodama of Emily Carr Institute of Art depicts what is happening in the lives of children ages 2.5 to 5 at Happy Farm.

At this time, children are in the spring of their lives -- a time when they grow the fastest and evolve with their environment. Like the animals on the farm picture, the children at HAPPY FARM are loved and nurtured. Cherry blossoms floating on the breeze and the warmth of the early morning light evoke the sensations of the season. The farm is waking up. The little chick fluffs its feathers. The mother duck leads her babies to the pond. The children will be out exploring soon -- their tummies full of pancakes. They’ll scramble up the rope ladder to their secret hide-away. They will wade in the stream and roll down the hill between the cows. But, for now, there’s silence as the colt gazes at the rocking horse, reaching out to nuzzle his friend.

While the children are not actually rolling down the hills between cows, so many of these similes are taking place for the children at HAPPY FARM. Please read on to see how HAPPY FARM helps your child grow positively and, in fact, flourishes with your child itself as it meets the new experiences of a continually changing world along with your children.
