What do you like best about New Horizon Academy-St Paul-Downtown?
The teachers are very good with the kids and take the time to work with each one's specific needs on a daily basis.

I love the teachers and how they interact with the kids, My kids are learning new things everyday. I enjoy bringing them everyday to a great center for children.

I like that it's a well-maintained, highly rated place where I can send my child. I can make the most of my time at work because I know that my child is receiving quality care from professional care-takers with an education in child development. Making the most of my time at work allows me to make the most of my time at home with my child and give each place my absolute best. The center is clean, the teachers are responsive, and they take the time to educate parents. The teachers help us identify things to work on at home with our child, and we feel that we work as a team in the overall care of our daughter.

My child likes going there and that means everything to me. The teachers and staff are always friendly and helpful.
