About Us

“Don’t Go Where The Path May Lead Go Instead Where There Is No Path And Leave A Trail”

Happy Trails is a place that your child will grow and reach their fullest potential. Developing the whole child is a philosophy that I believe enhances every child’s learning experience. Each child is unique and special, which makes their learning experience unique and special.  At Happy Trails each child is treated like an individual, their learning and care is individual. Each child is the most important child in the room. Both the child’s needs and the parent’s needs are our focus. This hands-on-theme-based program will reach every child’s level of learning. Each lesson/activity is geared towards fun that even the child does not realize how much they are truly learning!!

Who We Are


Samantha Pavelchak-Owner/Director

Welcome to Happy Trails………I am so excited to teach, have fun, care, and develop a world of learning for each child that walks this fabulous trail in life.

I have been teaching ages 6 weeks-5 years old for over fifteen years. I am Certified in Early Childhood (Birth-Grade 2), Elementary Education (1st-Grade 6), and Students with Disabilities (Birth-Grade 6). I Believe that each child deserves a safe, fun, structured, & loving environment where they can truly become the best that they can be!!!

At Happy Trails Childcare & Day Camp, we provide a safe, nurturing environment for children to learn, grow, and develop social skills. Our comprehensive center based curriculum is designed for discovery, hands on, choice, and problem-solving. Each of our toddler & preschool programs include art, science, math, music, health & fitness, outdoor play, imagination station, building room, fine motor and circle time. Plus, 4-year-olds enjoy enhanced reading and math readiness experiences to help them prepare for kindergarten.
