We celebrated our 50th Anniversary in 2019 with a gala celebration honoring our founder, Dr. Gerhard Kohn and his wife, Irena. We look forward to the next 50 years of serving children and their families with great anticipation, toward the next 50 years of serving children and their families.
Young Horizons’ primary purpose and activity is ensuring that low-income children develop the fundamental knowledge and skills they need to keep up and compete with their peers in kindergarten and beyond.
However, decades of experience have taught us that providing care and education is not enough.
We must also ensure that children receive appropriate nutrition because hungry children cannot develop and learn.
Children need access to books in the home so that reading becomes a pleasure and a habit, rather than a struggle.
But because scar tissue is not elastic, or check now now order cheap cialis stretchy, but rather hard, it stays put while other parts of the body.
Parents need to understand the stages of child development and parenting techniques so that they can provide stable and nurturing home environments that do not hinder their children’s ability to learn and form trusting relationships.
Teachers must know how to create supportive relationships with parents so that parents can turn to them for advice or referrals to community resources.
Young Horizons intentionally addresses these diverse needs of low-income children and their families to give these vulnerable children the greatest chance of succeeding in school and in life.
