Our Proven Systems, Developed Over Decades...
- 1you are in control of who has access - at all times
We ensure all parents and guardians nominate people who can pick up the children. Only recognized people are allowed into the building. Our systems and procedures are fully documented, with regular risk assessments and safety reviews to ensure your child's safety at all times.
- 2only approved persons may Pick-Up
In exceptional circumstances, parents and guardians can nominate another person to pick-up but this must be agreed in advance over the phone. In this call, we confirm the identity of the person speaking and set a once-off password (only valid one time) which must be used on collection.
- 3high standards of physical security
Teachers supervize, record and control entry to the center by all visitors. The door is always locked. We have secure fencing and a wide border around the perimeter of our secure playgrounds. Furthermore, at Happy Bunnies Austin (Oak Hill), we will shortly be installing a new, high-definition CCTV system that records all activity in the learning center, all the time.
- 4it's about experience - and professionalism
When you leave your child at Happy Bunnies, you're leaving them with Director Magdalena MacLeod, someone with decades of experience in the child care sector, both in England and over here. 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.
Only the Personal Touch Brings Results Like Ours
6 Highlights of the unique safety systems Magdalena has developed over decades.
First Aid & CPR
Every practitioner at Happy Bunnies Austin (Oak Hill) holds a Paediatric First Aid Certificate.
As part of our structured system, we make regular checks of all first aid kits, and ensure training is up todate for all our carers.
Audits & Controls
Trained experts audit all equipment and toys and make regular health and safety inspections. We review General risk assessments annually ‚ more frequently when required.
As soon as we get any new equipment, for example, it‚ is added into the risk assessment.
Happy Bunnies Austin (Oak Hill) recently acquired a modern, high definition CCTV system. It will be installed shortly.
This will record every classroom and hallway, using an on-site digital receiver. This is a closed system – security and images are only accessible by the director. It is absolutely not possible to directly access any of the images off-site or via the internet.
You can find our full CCTV Policy here.
Cell Phones Prohibited
Unlike other early learning centers and day cares, at Happy Bunnies mobile phones and personal cameras are not allowed at all anywhere in the daycare rooms.
We take this very seriously. When staff arrive, we collect all cell phones and lock them away in our office.
Images we capture to send you progress updates are only via our dedicated Happy Bunnies iPads.
The Front Door Remains Locked
At Happy Bunnies we have an "open door" policy. That means, we love the parents of our kids to feel they can come visit whenever they like.
However, we keep close control on who comes and goes. Lead Teachers supervize, record and control entry to the school by all visitors.
The front door is always locked.
Ring the bell. We're always happy to see you.
Contractors are Screened
Before any contractor is able to fix equipment or perform maintenance onsite at Happy Bunnies, they must be first approved by the center manager.
All staff and approved long-term contractors must have a current, enhanced background check.
We make sure all contractors are supervized while on the premises at all times.
What the Parents Say...
Great daycare, my daughter has been here since she was 3 months old .( 3 years old) Magdalena and all the staff always have a smile and are very helpful!
Very safe and secure and my daughter absolutely loves it!
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.
We have been sending our son to Happy Bunnies since he was just 3 months old. (He’s 17 months now) The staff at HB are more like family now, and we couldn’t be any happier. I especially love it when my son brings home artwork from the fun activities that they plan. These tiny pieces of art are something that I will always cherish.
