The mission of New Horizons Child Development Center is to provide childcare in a Christian environment, which will be nurturing, stimulating, safe, and responsive to young children and their families.
New Horizons Child Development Center is a ministry of First Christian Church. Therefore, our approach to child development is intentionally Christian. We respect the diversity of the beliefs and religious backgrounds of the families of the children enrolled at NHCDC. We believe in a holistic approach to child development, including the child’s spiritual well -being. We believe the most important element in development is in the establishment of a safe, trusting, and loving environment.
Our program is child-centered and based upon the belief that play is an essential avenue for learning. Our approach is individualized to meet each child’s needs and interests. Each classroom is organized with centers for creative art, literature, science, math, dramatic play, and cognitive and small motor development. The environment is planned to stimulate imagination, creativity, socialization, exploration and discovery. The classes we offer are listed below:
A morning and afternoon snack is provided, along with milk. Parents are responsible for bringing lunch daily. Lunches must meet the Kentucky Child Care Regulation guidelines:
Each lunch must contain 1/4 cup serving of : 1 vegetable and 1 fruit; Or 2 vegetables; 1 protein; 1 grain
