New Horizon Academy, a Minnesota-based family-owned and operated child care provider, has begun construction of its first Colorado school at the Denver Tech Center, 10472 E. Easter Ave., Centennial. The company also recently broke ground on a second location in Stapleton, 9200 E. 40th Ave.
The new schools join a growing footprint of 70 New Horizon Academy locations in and around the Twin Cities of Minnesota, four in Idaho and two in Iowa.
“At New Horizon, we are constantly tracking the regions with the greatest need for high-quality early learning and child care," Chad Dunkley, CEO of New Horizon Academy, said in a news release. "Colorado's booming population, with a shortage of child care openings, was a top market when we planned our national expansion." Dunkley notes the company plans to add four locations in the state within the coming year.
The Centennial location is anticipated to open in August, and the Stapleton site is expected to open in September.
New Horizon Academy has been serving families since 1971. For information, call 763-557-1111 or visit www.NewHorizonAcademy.net.
