Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"It is not an average mission to provide the best child development on the planet, but New Horizon is not an average company. New Horizon is an exceptional company, grown out of the commitment to children and families that Sue Dunkley made in 1971 when she opened her first child care center in a church. Sue made a commitment to do much more than merely care for children while their parents are away. She feels that nothing is more important than the self-esteem of each individual child. The entire philosophy and practice of New Horizon is devoted to the development of self-esteem in children, their families and in our caregivers.
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."
