Ability to have fun with the children. Lots of field trips in the summer, minimal stress on the environment. Truly a good place for childcare and anyone beginning to work in the field of early childhood.
Worker and Painter (Former Employee) – Unionville, CT – September 14, 2017
My overall experience working at New Horizons definitely helped me to see things in new perspective on what I eventually want to do in the future. This place was a village for people who were handicapped in wheelchairs and I got to meet interesting people while working there. I had fun there but eventually I wanted to explore more options when I graduated College

Teachers Aid (Former Employee) – Edina, MN – August 10, 2017
I was just doing a little job program for my school. I was terrified and first but by the end I cried cause they were very supportive and caring. I was able to work with different age groups and figure out which age group I was most comfortable with. They staff understood that I was scared so they let me watch and see how other people that worked there did things.

I think it will be a rewarding job. Due to circumstances beyond my control I have not had many hours. I have only worked here about 2 weeks. I am hoping to get more hours. This week will total 2 1/2 hours for the week. That is split into 3 days....
Direct Support Professional (Former Employee) – North Hills, CA – July 8, 2017
I helped care for people with disabilities. I assisted them with their daily activities. I cooked meals for them and took them out to do things in the community. I took them to the bowling alley and the park. They taught me a lot about myself and life in general.
You learn how to not take things for granted.
It can be stressful at times when clients are not compliant.
