I know it may seem as if you think that just having a password would help the camera situation, it's not that it wouldn't for parents, but its because if you were in an office etc and people were in the office with you and spotted a child they may know in the same class that would lose confidentiality. Now in your own home it would be ok, but not everyone is at home, most are at work and in an office where there is no guarantee. If it was just center cams there could also be problems with confidentialty in whos child did what. Also, children get sick all the time when they are in daycares, it will happen anywhere!! My kids are now teens, but I never complained once when they got sick in a daycare. Thats what happens when children are all together all the time, especially in winter. I dont think its this particular daycare center, it can be that the particular teacher was not good, it happens at any daycare; dont point the finger at all teachers and blame a center for a persons actions because I am a very good teacher and I work for New Horizon!!!!! I am a loving, spiritually filled christain and I love the kids I teach, I also have very good relationships with families and am very nurturing to the children and love my job!!

My daughter has attended this center since she was just 6 weeks old and she is now 20 months, and I absolutely love the fact that not only has she learned a great deal but the staff love her and they show her that, I feel that they take excellent care of her and all the other kids in their care. The staff know all the kids and their families very well, they are very personable with me as a parent and always communicate, every single time that any little thing goes on with her they tell me. I really appreciate that. i feel there is great supervision at all times, especially on the playground where it can probably get a little tough at times to possibly see every single child and see what they are doing, but this staff is super and walks around continously and monitors what the children are doing outside. It makes me feel very comfortable because my daughter is very high energy. I just really think that this experience with this center has been super for my daughter as well as my husband and I. I would recommend this New Horizon to everybody.

Over the past six years we have had two of our children attend New Horizon and have had an exceptional experience. We have experienced the infant, toddler, preschool and school age room and have found that the staff are all very loving and caring. I agree that the cost was a huge commitment but you get what you pay for and it has been worth every cent! The programming is fantastic as I am amazed at all of the things my children have learned while attending the school. The teachers are all so wonderful and the turnover has been VERY minimal. There are teachers that have been working there for three, four, five or more years and this has been incredible to see in such a demanding field. They frequently have open houses and invite the entire family to come in and visit- and provide enterteinment and even dinner. I cannot say enough positive things about New Horizon and the superior care that we have received.

While we paid about $1,000/month for this daycare, when my son had an accident we found out that nobody knew what happened. That was because the kids were UNSUPERVISED on the playground. Yeah, you read it right, their report stated clearly "NO WITNESSES"!!! My son had 5 stitches on his face for that injury.
Also, I went there several times to pick up my son and saw him and other kids jumping from a climber about 4 feet in height. The teacher told them that they're not supposed to do that only when she actually saw my furious face, but I'm sure they did that regularly, since my son seemed to be an expert at jumping from that height. Oh, and he was not on the playground for his group age, but on the one for older kids.
Also, some other time I went there my son and three other kids were one on top of each other behind some shelter on the playground, while the three teachers that were supposed to supervise them were on the other side of the shelter, talking and NOT CARING.
Not to mention that we found him often with the shoes reversed. No wonder they fall if nobody at the center notices something that simple.
We repeatedly asked them to put a camera on the playground and grant access to the images to the parents only, but they said that other people can see the kids. C'mon, people, didn't you hear about password protected web sites???
We definitely DO NOT RECOMMEND this center - my son attended it for less than 6 months and it has been the worst experience with a daycare. EVER!

I pick up my fiance's children every other weekend from New Horizon. They are always sick when they come over. It could be Mom or the daycare. Not sure.

PROS: Staff is Friendly
CONS: Need to promote more hand washing and anti bacterial lotions

While I loved the staff (newborn room) I found that the prices were very high. In addition, due to the high number of children, my child constantly had a runny nose.
