The Horizons Enrichment Center program is a five-day-a-week program that begins at 8:30 a.m. and ends at 2:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.
Our program is designed to encourage independence and community interaction for individuals with special needs. We offer a developmentally appropriate educational curriculum, and through careful planning and consideration we offer each participant the opportunity to access community facilities and events each month. A calendar with our daily and monthly activities is sent home at the beginning of each month with each participant.
The purpose of this program is to provide supportive programming each day by teaching basic life skill lessons, offering a variety of services and providing the opportunity for them to access community facilities and events. Sara Stovall is the lead teacher in this room. She has worked in the field for many years. This classroom also has three dedicated support staff workers.
The Horizons Enrichment Center is intended to provide a safe nurturing environment for all of its participants, especially those with who may require more one-on-one attention during their day here at Horizons. They all enjoy the attention of our dedicated support staff and enjoy the opportunity to visit our Learning Garden when weather permits and also enjoy the gym area as a way to get physical exercise.
The Horizons Enrichment Center Day Program will arrange or provide, at no cost to the participant, transportation to and from the center each day. This includes all outside activities that may be planned. Bus routes, schedules and stops are developed by the director. The purpose of bus scheduling and routing will be to achieve maximum service and safety, rendering reasonable and equal service to all eligible program participants.
