The Mental Health Association in Fulton and Montgomery Counties is very thankful to the Leader-Herald for allowing our agency to highlight monthly one of the many programs and services we offer. This month's program being highlighted is our daycare center. The daycare center provides affordable, quality care to children 6 weeks to 5 years of age and is open Monday through Friday from 6:30 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Many Happy Adventures Daycare provides a safe and nurturing, family-oriented environment, while maintaining a loving and creative atmosphere. The children attending the daycare are exposed to different learning experiences each day, from painting to projects, number and letter recognition, circle time routines, small and large motor activities and a well-rounded early childhood curriculum for all ages.
Many Happy Adventures Daycare encourages social, emotional and cognitive development through a variety of experiences and activities, including one-on-one interaction, large group activities, music and movement, outside play, and reading experiences. We encourage the children to form positive relationships; know, manage and express emotions; and explore their environment.

Outside/community activities include field trips to the Apple Orchard/Pumpkin Patch, and Halloween and Easter activities with the staff and residents of Pine View Commons. We also encourage family involvement and have an open-door policy. Many Happy Adventures Daycare performs a holiday program each year for the families with children enrolled in our program.
Many Happy Adventures Daycare is a New York state-licensed program through the Office of Children and Family Services. We are certified through the New York State Child and Adult Care Food program to serve quality, healthy meals to children.
