Preparing for a Safe Reopening at Horizon After COVID-19

With the coronavirus pandemic temporarily closing Horizon Education Centers since late March, our team has worked tirelessly to prepare for the day we can once again open our doors to families.

We have adapted these guidelines into our own protocol as we plan for how these changes will affect child care. We are also taking parent concerns and feedback into consideration.

We are also using this time to improve our facilities and have focused our extra time on vehicle maintenance, ensuring they meet the highest standards in transportation for children.

So what exactly will things look like when we reopen? Here is what we envision.
