Happiness is the most important thing we can foster in ourselves and our children. when children are in safe loving environments they are free to relax and have fun, make new friends and play freely having the time of their lives. When children feel secure and happy they become confident. Social skills promote high self esteem which allows children to enjoy life and develop as an individual.
