Why Choose Us...
The Horizons Childcare and Learning Center is under the auspices of Leaders Preparatory School, and was created in response to a demand for Islamic based child care for infants and preschool age children.
Horizons is licensed by the Department of Children and families (DCF) and provides childcare services for children from two weeks to five years of age.
Horizons continues to maintain its commitment to providing quality care and learning experiences in a loving, Islamic environment. The teacher/student ratio has remained much lower than what DCF requires so that we may provide the children enrolled at the center greater opportunities for one-on-one contact with their teachers. Horizons childcare offers VPK, Prekindergarten, toddler and infant care, summer, winter, and spring break camps, and Arabic lessons. We also offer the Food program! Nutritional breakfast, lunch and snacks are offered daily!
All of our teachers are required to complete 40 hours of state mandated childcare training. However, many of our teachers complete additional childcare education classes not required by DCF. A further DCF requirement is that we have at least one person on staff that is certified in first aid and CPR. At Horizons, however, safety is a high priority; therefore, we require that all of our teachers receive this training.
We are a 4 Star rated school!
