Teachers create opportunities for exploration to help nurture preschoolers’ curiosity.

  • Our knowledgeable, professionally trained teachers provide learning experiences and support to assist your preschooler in becoming a well-rounded individual.
  • In addition to assisting your preschooler strengthen their socialization skills, your child will learn how to compromise, be respectful of others, and problem-solve. We provide an environment where your preschooler will gain a sense of self, explore, play with peers, and build confidence. Your preschooler will discover that they are capable and can do things for themselves–from small tasks like pouring their own juice and helping set snack tables, to tackling bigger issues like making decisions about how to spend time in learning centers.
  • Our teachers help children find answers through exploration, experimentation, and conversation to help them grow to their full potential.

“I felt my child was 100 percent ready for kindergarten, thanks in great part to his time at New Horizon Academy. At his elementary school conference, his teacher told me his writing is ‘unheard of’ for a kindergartner— I give the New Horizon Academy curriculum tons of credit for this!"

— Sean T., Parent at New Horizon Academy
