  • Description - New Horizon Academy

    Our Programs Include - Infant: Welcome to our Infant Program! Each baby is to be cherished, and our youngest children are cared for in an environment that is especially responsive to individual needs. Our loving caregivers respond to each baby with kind words, warm smiles, and gentle touches to assure each child that they are safe, secure, and special. At New Horizon Academy, our infant classrooms offer an array of bright, stimulating equipment alongside soothing, restful areas, which provides a rich environment for babies to safely explore the wonderful new world around them. Toddler: (16 months - 33 months) Toddlers are eager, energetic learners. They love to say "I did it myself!" At New Horizon Academy, our toddler classrooms are busy, happy places, where children can learn, explore, sing, and dance. Our program for toddlers was designed to encourage each child's growing need for independence, and to foster the development of their self-esteem in a safe, supportive manner. Careful consideration is given to classroom arrangement and the selection of developmentally appropriate materials and equipment to encourage learning at each stage of toddler development. Preschool / Pre-Kindergarten: When Sue Dunkley founded the first New Horizon preschool program in 1971, her goal was to provide an environment that would foster the development of self-esteem for every child. That same Commitment to Excellence continues to flourish in each and every New Horizon Academy preschool classroom today. Our exceptional preschool program includes: -Our Creative Discoveries Preschool Curriculum, developed exclusively for New Horizon Academy by our team of Early Childhood experts -Beautifully equipped and well-enhanced classrooms, with careful consideration given to the selection of developmentally appropriate learning materials -Ample opportunities for your child to work in a large group, small group, or individually on specific school readiness skills -Daily teacher/parent communication. School Age: The school-age program at New Horizon Academy, Passport to Fun, has been especially developed for children from kindergarten through twelve years of age. School-age children who participate in our Passport to Fun program grow intellectually and socially, develop a sense of community responsibility, and form lasting friendships. Our school-age classrooms are designed to foster the individual and unique interests of school-age children, and provide a happy, relaxing, and club-like atmosphere. Camp Discovery: The summer program at New Horizon Academy, Camp Discovery, is your child's passport to a summer of fun, friends, and field trips. We have created the most fun-filled, action-packed summer program based on our 40+ years of experience with young children and school-age children who are on summer vacation. A new theme each month challenges kids through experiments, special projects, games, crafts, and stories from around the world. Our summer activities will develop your child's intellect, social skills, creative thought, and most importantly, self-esteem.
