Serving Children from Norwalk and Stamford

Family & Caregiver Programming

The Family and Caregiver Program at Horizons encourages families to get involved. Studies have shown that active family involvement correlates to increased academic success and positive social behavior for our students. Horizons families make an effort to participate in our programming, from our Holiday Dinner to our Teacher Appreciation lunch. Family workshops are offered concurrently with the school year student enrichment programming.  We restructured our Family Council to be more efficient and 31 parents took on the role as Family Grade Reps and met monthly with Horizons Staff and shared the information with their grades. Every summer adult caregivers participate in our weekly adult swim lessons and make major strides in learning how to swim, while making new connections. Our families recognize the value of the experience their student/students are receiving through the Horizons program and they work to make their own contribution by being actively engaged and involved.
