Read What Area Parents Say About New Horizon Academy, Champlin

“We had clearly done our homework in searching for the best child learning centers and New Horizon Academy won hands down.

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 center 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. It is very comforting knowing that everyday, I am doing the very best for my child.
Highest regards,
Nick K.

“I drop my preschooler off in the morning and know that he is having fun, learning and growing every day. The curriculum at New Horizon Academy is wonderful. Our son will attend Kindergarten in the fall and is more than prepared. We love the Champlin New Horizon!”

“Our family recently moved to Champlin and the most critical part of the process was identifying a childcare facility that met our expectations. I have worked in education for over 10 years and have developed pretty lofty expectations for what I deemed important in child development. After touring a wide range of childcare facilities, before we even left the parking lot of New Horizon, we knew it was by far the best educational environment for our son.

The level of commitment and care by the staff is apparent and reflective of the overall atmosphere of the building. We truly feel as though New Horizon Champlin is a family…my son is so happy going to school and has expressed how much he loves it at "Horizon."

I cannot express my gratitude enough. Thank you for everything you do and continue to be the best!!!”
