Exclusive Features in Andover

Explore some of the things that make our Andover daycare unique!

We love this place! The teachers and staff are great, and my daughter has learned far more than I ever expected from infancy to 2-years-old. I have to give a special thanks to the Andover in-house cook who goes out of her way to accommodate my daughter’s dietary restrictions, ensuring that she still enjoys meals similar to her peers. The New Horizon Academy food program is awesome and takes the stress out of trying to pack her lunch myself every day.
