Our infant classrooms are places where babies can grow and learn every day by exploring and making new discoveries in a cozy environment with loving and caring teachers.

Our school-age program provides a happy, club-like atmosphere where children are offered enriched learning opportunities in a fun and engaging environment. 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.

“What sets New Horizon Champlin apart is the love. There is a feeling of home and love that comes before everything else. Not only does it come from Mary, the director, but from the entire staff. It’s clear that the staff is happy, enjoys what they do, and shares the same passion for wanting the best for our child.
