    Pros

    It is amazing to work for a company who wants to do what is best for children, families and staff everyday. The company offers many opportunities for staff to grow professionally and reach their personal goals.

    Cons

    Childcare can be challenging work but if one is ready to learn while they work they will succeed.

        I worked at New Horizon Academy full-time for more than 2 years

        Pros

        Pay is better than most childcare centers and benefits are pretty good.

        Cons

        Management isn't great. Staff aren't treated equally. Management seems to care more about the money than their staff.
