"Good child care includes providing a safe, secure facility; hiring and training loving people who are committed to children; and ensuring healthy, nutritious meals. New Horizon has made the commitment to go beyond "good" to being the "best." For us, being the "best" means promoting excellence. The focus of every decision we make is to promote self-esteem. Some examples include:
To foster self-esteem in infants, we always give them choices. This promotes their emerging sense of self.
To foster self-esteem in toddlers, we have designed facilities where they are able to master tasks in their environment. This allows them to say, "I can do it!"
To foster self-esteem in preschoolers, we created a curriculum which helps develop their emerging intellectual curiosity through the exploration of language, dramatic play, math, science, and other fun activities. This helps them understand that they are bright and capable.
To foster self-esteem in school age children, we provide ongoing enrichments through projects and field trips designed to explore the world. This helps them grow into self-confident and independent adults.
Every decision we make, from choosing toys and books to designing classrooms and buildings, is based on promoting the self-esteem of the children entrusted to our care. We are committed to a world of excellence where every child is able to say "I like me!"
