About Us

Family Owned & Operated Since 1978

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

    In 1978, Halsey Schools was established in Woodland Hills, California, serving children of all ages. It didn’t take long for Halsey Schools to become the leader in quality early childhood development. Over the years many other schools have come and gone. But through it all Halsey Schools remains the bench mark from which all other schools are measured.

    When we opened in 1978 Warner Center was a huge horse ranch called Warner Ranch. There weren’t any high rises, condos or huge office complexes. Woodland Hills has changed a lot over the years and as the needs of our families and community have evolved so have we.

    Halsey Schools is completely independent and is family owned and operated by the Halsey Family; Jenni, Bobby and Richard. Jenni is the Director running the day to day operations. Bobby runs the website, marketing, and business side. Richard is retired and still involved. Judy Halsey passed away in 2015 and 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.

    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. Some day I know my great grandchildren will by happy learners here too.

  • Halsey Schools is loved on yelp

    Halsey Schools is one of the best schools in the Valley!!!! All three of my children (as well as my niece) attended Halsey and I couldn’t be happier. After meeting Mr. and Mrs. Halsey and Jenni and Bobby and Ms. Jeri, I fell in love with the school and the rest was, as they say, HISTORY. My children have long since graduated and we have remained in contact and stop in to see them whenever we are around. We are always greeted with a smile and Bobby, Jenni and Ms. Jeri take the time to sit down and reminisce. My daughter was very sick when she was in 1st grade in the hospital with a brain tumor and the whole Halsey family and many of their staff spent an incredible amount of time in the hospital with us as part of our family. My children Chelsey, Chris and Erika learned so much at Halsey. They were an integral part of their growing up. Thank you so much for being a part of our lives.

    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.

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! 🙂
