Now in Austin (Oak Hill)
In 2018, we took over a purpose-built early learning center in Oak Hill, Austin. The school has an excellent reputation and a great location, just off 290 at the Y with Highway 71.
Fun Steps in Learning
Children at Happy Bunnies learn through enjoying themselves and having fun. Our Oak Hill school is exciting. Children who enjoy their environment engage better.
Days are structured. Consistency offers kids the sense of security they need.
Our working system establishes this, but it’s fun. We adapt the system to each child’s individual needs.
A Home From Home
Our school is homey. We have small group sizes. You get the benefits of a well-organized early learning chain (proven system) with the benefits of a small school (personal touch, love and care).

We have the very best curriculum and practices in Texas - but our school is also seriously FUN!
We have had our child at Happy Bunnies for 18 months. We've been extremely satisfied with the care and instruction she's received.
Owner Magdalena is very educated in early childhood development. She's also been accommodating with our schedule, and with classroom placement for our daughter. We like that the kids spend a fair amount of time playing outside weather permitting. Our daughter loves her teacher and classmates and will miss Miss May.
Among other teachers, Miss Elle, Miss Natalie and Miss Alina, have been kind and helpful. So many parents in South Austin/Oak Hill/DS area looking for good childcare or MDO-style daycare - this is a good option for you!
We would recommend Happy Bunnies to any of our friends.
When searching for a daycare that is the best for your child, you want to make sure that it is absolutely perfect right? If you think about it, where you send your child to daycare is where your child is going to grow, learn, make new friends, and spend a majority of their time during the week. I was looking for a daycare whose philosophy was focused on play and developmental based, but with Happy Bunnies, I found more.
I found love and happiness for my girls. Nothing against the big chain daycares out there, but that’s not what i was looking for. I wanted a place that would focus on my kids as individuals, and not grouped in as a whole. The teachers love their kids and genuinely show that they care in so many ways.
Leaving my 10 month old was hard at first, but the teachers give frequent updates and pictures and I always know what is going on. I truly never have to worry about the girls because i know they are in such good hands.
Magdalena, the owner, is such a kind person and so easy to talk to. She is incredibly understanding and amazingly flexible because she just gets it! My hours aren’t always consistent and she has been understanding 100% of the time and has worked with me regarding hours for the girls.
I hope that I’m able to express how amazing this daycare is because it will be hard to find another one like it.
My 17 month old son has been attending Happy Bunnies (previously Child’s Way) full time since he was a little bitty 3 month old. This is my first child, and I was so terrified and hesitant to leave him. Ms. Alina was so kind and patient with me, sending photo updates and keeping in close contact with me to ease my fears. My son LOVES her, so much so that sometimes I get a little jealous - but what a great problem to have! Recently he's even been throwing fits when we come to pick him up because he's having so much fun that he doesn't want to leave. I’m incredibly thankful I have found a place that I trust, and that my son comes home tired and happy. I would recommend Happy Bunnies without hesitation, and I’m excited for all the adventures to come!
"My name is Magdalena MacLeod and I'm the owner of Happy Bunnies - and Director of our new school at Austin Oak Hill.
"I was born in Slovakia to a family that has been in the childcare and teaching sector for generations. I trained as a day care & pre-school teacher and graduated from the Pedagogical Academy in 1993 with distinction.
"For the last 11 years, I have owned and operated my own childcare centers. I have spent my entire life working with children of pre-school age."
We've run schools for many years.
Magdalena started her chain in 2008 by taking over 3 well-established daycare centers and preschools near London, England. At that time, those 3 daycares had been running for 20 years.
The experience laid the foundation for her purpose-built early learning center in England and later here in Austin, TX.
“My ethos is simple, I love children and I want to care for them in an environment that feels as close to home as possible. Happy Bunnies offers childcare that is home away from home. We learn through play and we love and care for children like they are our own.
"I'm a mom myself; my daughter Valerie is now 12 and my son Eddie is 10. Both were cared for at my schools in England. I strive to offer a very loving and fun childcare. ”
