The Happy Day Child Care Center Preschool was founded in 1955 by Ethel M. Smith. As a parent of a young child, she found herself having to rely on day care in order to work. It was in that day care setting that her child sustained a life threatening injury that required emergency surgery. While waiting for her four year old daughter to come out of surgery, Mrs. Smith began visualizing a preschool where parents "would not have to worry". A preschool program that provided a safe environment for child, along with a staff threat was alert to the activities around them. It also meant that parents would be informed if their child was injured or complained of being ill.
