About the Provider

Description:

New Horizon Academy, a Minnesota family-owned and operated company, has been serving young children for over 45 years. Our founder, Sue Dunkley, began her career as an elementary school teacher. Sue knew she needed to provide a nurturing place for children to go before they ventured out into the big world and entered school, a place that would help them believe in themselves. That is why New Horizon was born.

Today, Chad Dunkley, Sue’s son and one of New Horizon Academy’s first students, is our Chief Executive Officer. Chad ensures that the commitment to excellence Sue strived for in New Horizon’s early years and the foundation that our company was built upon continue to be the cornerstone for each New Horizon Academy. Indeed, the entire mission, philosophy, and practices of New Horizon Academy are devoted to that commitment to excellence and the development of a healthy sense of self in every child enrolled in our programs.

Because of our continuing love, belief, and dedication to children, we have flourished and become one of the nation’s most successful and respected providers of child care and early education.

As New Horizon Academy continues to grow and serve more families each year, we will always have family roots, a warm atmosphere, an open door, and a commitment to excellence.

I have used this provider for more than 6 months

I was reading through the reports and I myself have encountered issues with this daycare. When ever my daughter would get upset they would grab her and hold her down like a prisoner and even admitted to it but saying that was the only way to gain control. When asking my daughters friends parent who was dropping off her child she confirmed what my daughter had been saying all along. At the time she was only 3 or 4 and I wanted to give the day care the benefit of the doubt. I feel that Sam the director at that time was very ignorant and when brought concerns it was always an issue to analyze the daycare's or her authority. The day care facility manager was just as naive and I would never send my child back here again. Sam literally wears the tightest yoga pants I have ever seen and has made myself and child feel uncomfortable with a few of her misleading and strange actions. I would never go back!
