PHILOSOPHY
Here at Noah's Ark children ages Infant-Kindergarten are cared for by our nurturing and experienced teachers who have a true gift with children. We create a partnership with our parents to assure both you and your child's needs are met. Our Philosophy is based on three principal goals. These are to help children gain confidence, to impart a strong sense of community and to foster a true love of learning. We provide a warm consistent environment where our children are encouraged to explore, make choices and gain independence. We instill a strong sense of self and a discovery of each child's unique place in the world we live in.

Infants/Waddlers
Our Nursery provides babies with the opportunity to explore with age appropriate toys and materials in a healthy, warm and loving environment. These surroundings along with the caring and loving hands of our teachers help our babies build self confidence, curiosity and enthusiasm which makes their early stages of development that much more joyful! Safety & cleanliness is of top priority!

Toddlers
Noah's Ark teachers want toddlers to feel comfortable and safe while they explore, inquire, experiment, create, question, and learn. We strive to create an environment where they feel safe to learn and where they are respected, empowered, trusted and listened to. In short, a place to which they want to come back each day, because it's theirs.

Young-Pre
An environment of bright colors and appropriate centers provide optimum stimulation for the Young Pre growth. Young Pre children want to touch, taste, smell, hear, and test things for themselves. Our teachers incorporates into the curriculum four of most important developmental areas for this age group: Social, Emotional, Cognitive and Physical growth. Many self help skills are also introduced to the children through daily routines and cooperative play. The children are taught to be more vocal resulting in language strong development.

Pre-K Kindergarten
Our curriculum has children are eager, happy and excited about learning! We pride ourselves in embracing children's natural curiosity, inspiring them to explore and discover the world of learning. Our weekly themes are enhanced with many hands-on activities which engage children into learning. Social, Emotional and Academic development is all wrapped up into one fun package! We believe that children learn by doing, here we encouraged them to believe in themselves and graduate from our school natural leaders.

I have dedicated the first level of my colonial house to my child care facility that is secure, safe, clean, pet and smoke free.
I offer full time, part time and drop in care.
I have a secure, safe, clean, fun and nurturing indoor environment and a small playground to play outside. Learning time and activities are fun, engaging and developmentally appropriate for young children. I have a professional curriculum purchased from an educational company and meets the standards of the National Association for the Education of Young Children.
