Happy Horizons Childcare is a non-profit organization whose goal is to provide high-quality, accessible childcare in a safe and nurturing environment, enabling families to continue or obtain employment or to further their education in order to improve the economic stability of their family and the community in which they live.
We provide curriculum for each class, enabling each child to learn and develop at their age-appropriate level . Our schedules ensure that our daily plans give variety and cover activities that allow children to use varying skills. They also learn social skills as well as developmental skills. We strive to provide and meet the needs of the whole child.
We provide musical experiences, warm interaction with others, exploring through directed playtime (indoors and out), learning new skills, sensory activities, and creative arts and crafts. We also have an enclosed/fenced playground area for our outdoor activities.
SAFETY AND TRAINING
We provide a safe environment for children as we meet all health and safety guidelines and are licensed and inspected annually by the City of Moscow as well as the Idaho Department of Health and Welfare. We are also participating in the Steps to Quality program through Idaho STARS, which furthers our training and education for all staff.
Our teachers are qualified by education and/or experience to work with young children. All staff are required to have background checks and child-abuse record clearances. They are also certified in First Aid and CPR and are licensed Daycare Providers. Each staff member is also required to complete training with Idaho Stars and are licensed as a childcare provider through the City of Moscow.
To comply with the City of Moscow, each of our staff is allotted 10 points. Infants through age two (infants and walkers) are three points, two to three-year-olds (toddlers) are two points, and four to five-year-olds are one point.
We are part of the CACFP food program and we provide two nutritious meals each day, along with morning and afternoon snacks.

We are now participating in the Idaho STARS Steps to Quality Program.
We will soon be using the CDC's Milestone Tracker to help us as well as our parents better understand each child’s skills and abilities, track and celebrate developmental milestones, and share development progress from ages 2 months through 5 years.
We will be "rolling out" a new development tracking assessment program in early fall.
