Lasting Friendships

The rhythm of the program takes into account each school-age child’s desire to form lasting friendships, explore theme-related topics of interest, gain confidence in their independence skills, and experience a balance of learning and fun.

“My daughter attended the after school program at New Horizon. It was SO convenient for us that they offer this program because it allowed us to have one pick-up location. The teachers were great, and she loved the change of scenery from her school’s program.”
