About Us

We’ve been providing quality early childhood education and care in Woodland Hills since 1978!

I love spending my days here. It is such a happy place for everyone. Sharing in the happiness and joy that children bring to every life they touch is something I treasure. I can’t stop smiling! I hope you and your family will join in on the fun! But be careful, our smiles are contagious!

The Halsey Family

Halsey Schools is completely independent and is family owned and operated by wife and husband Jenni and Bobby. Jenni is the Director running the day to day operations. Bobby runs the website, marketing, and business side. Bobby started working at Halsey Schools with his parent founders Richard & Judy Halsey when he was just a youngster. Jenni & Bobby fell in love in high school then Jenni joined the family and started teaching too! Jenni took over as the director in 1989. Richard is retired and Judy passed away in 2015. Her legacy lives on through all of us. Halsey Schools is open Monday through Friday 6:30 – 6:30 year-round and is only closed about 9 times a year on national Holidays.

I’m so proud of what Jenni does everyday! She is truly an angel. Her smile and encouraging words help the children, parents and the teachers become better people. Jenni and I have spent our entire lives surrounded by children. Even if we’ve done something hundreds of times it’s always exciting, fresh and new with fascinated children. I'm so proud to have had our own children and all my nephews and nieces attend Halsey Schools. What a treat to be able to be such a part of their early childhood!
When we started Halsey Schools in 1978, I wanted it to be a great place for children to learn and develop. The thought of my future grandchildren attending never entered my mind. Over the years I’ve been able to share many happy preschool memories with 1000s of children and all 11 of my grandchildren. Someday I know my great grandchildren will by happy learners here too.
Halsey Schools has always been my favorite place to be. Spending time with children always makes me happy. I just love to see those great big smiles when children learn or accomplish something new. I’m so proud of our school and the children we have taught over the years.
