Happy Times pride in being a positive place for children of all ages. HTLC goals are to provide a safe, fun and positive environment for the youth. We offer before and after school programs to assist kindergarten to eighth grade children in developing self-esteem, values social and practical life skills. We focus on areas in character and leadership, education and career development, health and nutrition, the arts, sports, and fitness and recreation.

We have a very cute set up and a huge area exclusively designated for school age children. Homework assistance and computer time is available to do school projects and IXL. We offer free of cost nutritious morning breakfasts and afternoon snacks to school age children.

Parents can drop off their both little ones at our preschool and big ones at HTLC for Appoquinmink school district and MOT Charter school morning care. School buses may pick up children from our location. We also offer our services full days and half days for school closings. P.O.C is accepted

Happy Times offer before and after school care to Appoquinmink school district and MOT Charter school (located in Middle Town DE). Since Happy Times is located on Brennen Blvd., Appoquinimink and MOT Charter school buses can pick and drop children from our facility. We could also transport children to OBL school for pick and drop from school if needed.
