Our family has had an absolutely amazing daycare experience, and we couldn’t be happier that we chose the New Horizon Academy Chanhassen location. They have fantastic staff who routinely go above and beyond in caring for our children. Also, since staff retention is high, it has been wonderful to see our younger children have all the same teachers as our older child. From the infant room up to the pre-k room, the teachers pour their hearts into taking care of our kids. Stop looking for a daycare and enroll your kids here – you’ll be glad you did!
