New Horizon Academy preschool classrooms are fun, happy, and engaging places where children explore, investigate, and discover. Our preschool early education program supports each preschooler’s emerging school-readiness skills, along with the development of important social and emotional skills in a supportive learning environment.
Each morning you and your preschooler will receive a warm and loving welcome from our teachers. During this time, you will have an opportunity to connect with your preschooler’s teacher to create a smooth transition from home to school.
Your preschooler will engage in meaningful, hands-on, school-readiness activities, along with a variety of exploration experiences that encourage thinking skills and develop confidence.
The development of good eating habits is one of the many skills your preschooler will learn as they enjoy meals and snacks with their teachers and friends.
Group time provides your preschooler with an opportunity to come together with other children as a community of learners.
Preschoolers are natural explorers. Your preschooler’s teacher will prepare purposeful experiences in science, technology, engineering, the arts, and mathematics for your child to investigate. Learn More

“I felt my child was 100 percent ready for kindergarten, thanks in great part to his time at New Horizon Academy. At his elementary school conference, his teacher told me his writing is ‘unheard of’ for a kindergartner— I give the New Horizon Academy curriculum tons of credit for this!"
