And we're ready to help your children grow and learn.

Goals of Noah’s Ark Preschool

The Child
  • Provide opportunities and activities to help the children develop a healthy self-concept, which includes accepting themselves, their limitations, and their talents as God has given them.
  • Offer appropriate play experiences which will contribute to the developmental needs of the children.
  • Encourage the child to interact with others in an appropriate way.

The Parents
  • Assist parents in carrying out their parental responsibilities in Christian education and understanding the developmental needs of the children.
  • Support all families with common concerns such as: discipline, health and safety education.

The Community
  • Help in meeting the needs of the community for a Christian-based early childhood program.
Our Philosophy:

  • Ambulatory;
  • With proof of immunization.
