Commitment to Quality

Driven by our commitment to excellence, our schools pursue the voluntary achievement of a nationally recognized accreditation. Accreditation is an important distinction awarded to schools who exhibit compliance with the highest standards of quality in child care and early education programs.

Quality Rating System

The Quality Rating System is a state-specific program which is designed to measure the quality of care and education offered in early childhood programs. The program evaluates:
• health and safety,
• curriculum,
• learning environment,
• family engagement, and
• teacher qualifications.

Speak with your director to learn more about the requirements in your state.

What Does Accreditation Mean For You and Your Child?

Accreditations Family

Your child will attend a school that provides a safe and healthful environment for children, has teachers who are highly qualified and well-trained, uses a curriculum that promotes school-readiness, upholds standards that far exceed state licensing requirements, and implements best practices in early childhood education.

One hundred percent of our eligible schools are accredited. This is an accomplishment no other child care provider of our size has achieved, and only six percent of early childhood programs nationwide are accredited. As an accredited program, New Horizon Academy joins a select group of early childhood education centers distinguished by our quality, our commitment to young children, and our dedication to excellence.

“We have been with New Horizon for many years primarily because of the quality of teachers. We have particularly appreciated the low turnover and the fact that the teachers seem to genuinely love and care for our kids.”

— Ray H., Parent at New Horizon Academy
