Bella Balloon changes ownership

We are happy to announce two big changes for Happy Days Daycare.

First off, with a heavy heart we would like to anncounce Mrs. Anna an extremely found farewell as she is retiring. Mrs. Anna lovingly looked after North Vancouver children for over twelve years and it will be hard to see her go altough we are sure she will still visit from time to time to say hello to her Children.

Secondly, due to a conflict with the name "Happy Days Daycare" we will be changing the name to "Bella Balloon Childcare Centre". This change also reflects the move to a bigger scope from just a daycare as we will now be offering pre-school and montesori inspired programs.
