The story of The Happy Tree Child Development Center started in October of 1989.  The center was started by a young woman from Brooklyn, New York, who had just completed college at South Carolina State University in Early Child Development Education.  Frances Bennett, the only one of 19 children to complete her education, had an interest in the lives of young children so much so that she was led to open a high quality child development center.

Her first center was located on site at an apartment faculty in Far North Dallas during the late 80’s.  It grew from 17 to over 50 students.  The concept back then was to have high quality care where one lived.  This concept was a hit!

The childcare center continued to grow and was relocated to Carrollton in 1990.  The center enrolled over 130 students and was able to continue the success of the providing high quality care to families.   In 2001, the center grew yet again. This time we would relocate to our own building.

The moment you walk through the doors you can sense that you are in a place of caring, loving, respectful and patient individuals.  Here at the center, we take pride in providing children and families with the highest level of care and developmentally appropriate practice. Simply put, The Happy Tree is a home away from home. Our teachers are well equipped to take care of your children because of their full knowledge in Early Childhood Education.  We are devoted to raising healthy, happy, and intelligent children because we put our heart and soul into it.
