Play-Based Curriculum

Our Philosophy & Mission

Play-Based Curriculum

Our programs are structured around learning centers and play activities that enable children to investigate at their own pace. Our play helps build foundations for skills in mathematics, reading, science, art and music, as well as large and small muscle coordination.  

We focus on the WHOLE child, helping them navigate social and emotional challenges as well.

Our Philosophy & Mission

Our Philosophy & Mission

New Horizons Preschool has a relaxed and informal atmosphere where children and parents feel safe and welcome.  You will find a cheerful and stimulating environment where children explore, discover, and grow toward their full physical, social, and intellectual potential.

NHPS is an outreach of St. John United Methodist Church. We serve families of the church as well as those throughout the community. We celebrate Christian holidays; however, our doors are always open to families of all beliefs.
