We believe children learn best by doing. At Happy Tots Academy, children engage in hands-on and
interactive activies that encourage participation and fun above all else. Children receive lots of both free
and structured play throughout each day. We seek to channel each child’s curiosity into meaningful and
useful educational directions.

Our Story

My name is Nora Carmona. I am the owner and director of Happy Tots Academy. I have over 30 years experience working with children and even have two of my very own. After graduating from UCLA with a bachelor’s degree in Child Development, my dream of owning my own school eventually manifested into Happyland Preschool and Kindergarden.

Having raised two beautiful children with my husband Enrique, while running a Preschool and Kindergarten at the same time for 25 years, I felt I was in need of some rest and decided to sell Happyland.

A year into my retirement, I felt something was missing in my life. I longed to once again work hard at something I love doing. Realizing that working with children is what I do best, I decided to open up my own home as a daycare center. Three years later, I could not be happier. The fulfillment that I gain from being a part of each child’s life means more to me than I can put into words. I consider it a privilege to care for these children who I grow to love very much. Their smiles and laughter brighten my world… and there’s nothing more I’d rather do, then brighten theirs.
