Happy Day Child Care

Happy Day Child Care is a DCFS Licensed child care located in North Hoffman Estates, Illinois. [email protected] // 847-650-8646 LIMITED spots available, call or email today!

What makes Happy Day Child Care different than the rest? - Your child will be provided 2 meals (breakfast and lunch) and 2 snacks (morning and afternoon). These meals/snacks will always be natural/organic. I will not feed your children processed/canned foods. All foods will be healthy and follow state nutrition standards. - I cloth diaper my two children and love it! I am very familiar with using cloth diapers and am more than happy to do so with your little ones! - I will only be watching, at most, five children at all times. This means your child will get individual care and this 'day care' will be more like a home away from home. I will treat your children like my own. - I offer a smoke free and very clean home. I do have 2 hypo-allergenic dogs that may be put away during care hours. About the caregiver: Hello! My name is Lois and I have been married for two years to my husband Eugene. We have a daughter, born in June 2011, and son, born in December 2012. I knew from a very young age that I wanted to work with children and achieved my goal by obtaining a degree in Elementary Education. I graduated Cum Laude from Northern Illinois University with a B.S. in Elementary Education and a minor in Mathematics. After graduating, I became a nanny for a family with four children (ages ranging from newborn to six years old) and worked for the family for two years. I then became a teacher at E-nopi tutoring center and worked with children of all ages, all along working to get my home licensed to be an in-home daycare. What is the difference from a licensed daycare vs. unlicensed daycare? As a DCFS licensed in home daycare, everyone in the household (18+ years) must get fingerprinted, background checked, and pass a medical exam. A fire marshal and DCFS representative must visit the home to ensure a safe and appropriate environment for children of all ages. Licensed caregivers may only have 8 children under their care at all times depending on the ages of the children. Unlicensed daycares do not follow any of these rules and regulations, which can be very concerning.

After a weekend-long training with some amazing women, I am proud to say I’m now a certified yoga teacher for kids!!! We have been practicing yoga this past year at child care and our children have absolutely loved it. Now, I’m trained to actually teach our children some depth into the practice and I can’t wait to see their growth.

Does this give you anxiety? These kids LOVE making a mess but the fantastic part is that everything gets cleaned up just as well.

I love the impact I have made on my child care children. This is the best thing I’ve seen all day! ❤️❤️❤️

Awesome party and even more awesome families ❤️

Our hearts are full ❤️ Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night.

How lucky am I to be invited into our families’ lives and have the joy of watching their children grow? We are thankful for our extended family, open hearts, and the trust to watch their most precious treasure. To wake up each morning and never feel like we work a day in our lives is a true blessing. Every day is a day to be thankful ❤️❤️ happy thanksgiving from our family to yours!

Our Story

What makes Happy Day Child Care different than the rest? - We are a DCFS licensed family group child care. - We provide your child with 2 homemade meals (breakfast and lunch) and one snack. Our meals are made in house and created with wholesome ingredients that are mostly organic. - We are cloth diaper friendly. - An in-home child care will provide your child a home-like environment that allows them to grow and be a part of a family. - We are a smoke free home. - We have one “child care pet” that has been a part of the family since our opening. Pistachio is a hypo-allergenic dog that is DCFS approved. About the caregiver: Hello! My name is Ms. Lois and I am the owner/director of Happy Day Child Care. I opened Happy Day Child Care in January 2013 and am enjoying every single moment of caring for children in my care. One of the greatest things about our child care is that we have created a unique community of parents that allow your child to grow in an extended “family” environment. Once you are a part of our child care, you are family for life.

I obtained my Bachelor’s degree from Northern Illinois University. I have a B.S. in Elementary Education and a minor in Mathematics. After starting Happy Day Child Care and falling in love with early childhood, I went back to school and received my Master’s from National Louis University in Early Childhood Administration. What is the difference from a licensed daycare vs. unlicensed daycare? As a DCFS licensed in home daycare, everyone in the household (18+ years) must get fingerprinted, background checked, and pass a medical exam. A fire marshal and DCFS representative must visit the home to ensure a safe and appropriate environment for children of all ages. Licensed caregivers must follow state rules which include the number of children served, emergency plans, safe sleeping arrangements, medical records for all children cared for, and more. Unlicensed child cares do not have rules and regulations they abide by which can be very concerning.

Licensed caregivers provide tax information so parents can take advantage of the child care tax credit.
