We follow the Early Years Foundation Stage Framework, as established by the British Office for Standards in Education, which uses six overlapping age bands. Every child is different and children do not grow and develop at the same rate, or in the same way.
It's an integrated program that evolves as your child gains confidence and develops at Happy Bunnies.
Birth - 11 Months
8 - 20 Months
16 -26 Months
22 - 36 Months
30 - 50 Months
40 -60 Months
The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) sets the standards that [Happy Bunnies] meet to ensure that children learn and develop well and are kept healthy and safe.
It promotes teaching and learning to ensure children’s ‘school readiness’ and gives children the broad range of knowledge and skills that provide the right foundation for good future progress through school and life.

The Unique Child reaches out to relate to people and things through the Characteristics of Effective Learning, which move through all areas of learning.
Children develop in the context of relationships and the environment around them.
This is unique to each family, & reflects individual communities & cultures.
Prime areas are fundamental, work together, and move through to support development in all other areas.

Meet Happy Bunnies Director Magdalena MacLeod
Born to a family in the childcare and teaching sector for generations, Magdalena trained as a day care & pre-school teacher and graduated from the Slovak Pedagogical Academy in 1993 with distinction.
Then, 11 years ago, she took over a chain of centers in England that had been running for over 20 years. They provided the foundation for her early learning centers both in England and over here in Austin, Texas.
Today, she personally runs the Happy Bunnies Early Learning Center in Oak Hill, Austin. When you drop off your child at Happy Bunnies, you know they are in Magdalena's care, someone with decades of experience in the child care sector. You are not leaving them with an anonymous manager in a large corporate chain. She cares, and has the experience and the unique attention to detail that comes from owning and operating her own school.
Magdalena would love to meet you and show you around her Austin Happy Bunnies.

Our children are at Happy Bunnies and we are thrilled with their level of care. The teachers communicate daily and send us pictures regularly of them doing activities throughout the day. We love the play based mentality and that they allow children to explore their interest. I appreciate most that when I leave them there, the teachers will love my children and do best by them as I would. We would highly recommend this daycare facility!
My son has been going to Happy Bunnies since he was 8 months old and he is now 2.5 yrs. We have been nothing but happy about our experience!! The teachers truly love the kids, they are kind, loving and give the babies and toddlers tons of cuddles and comfort and the owner, Magdalena, is wonderful. They are extremely flexible with scheduling. I am a nurse and work 2 shifts a week, and they can accommodate my ever changing schedule without any issue at all. While the building may not be the “fanciest” what really matters is the people inside and they are like family now. Happy Bunnies has been the biggest blessing to our family, and we love them and recommend them to anyone!
We LOVE happy bunnies!!! They take such great care of our precious girl and she loves going. It was a big decision on finding the right place since she started right at 4 months old. She is now 16 months, and has done so well there. They really care about the kids and we couldn’t be more happy with our choice!! So grateful to find a place that she gets excited about and sometimes even cries when it’s time to go! THANKS Happy Bunnies!!!!
