6 Highlights of the unique safety systems Magdalena has developed over decades.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
